    Nothing about the two movements on the ETA site; hardly surprising as they're Longines-specific.

    Doubt I'll get one since I tend to prefer wearing my Grand Seikos over the Certina chrono, but looks like a great addition to the line. Longines has a wider distribution than Certina, so this should be easier to find in the US. Not sure why the WR is only 50 meters and then featured so prominently on the dial. Glad they added a perpetual calendar.

    "These movements have a high degree of precision for an analog watch ( 5 seconds per year deviation)..."
    That would be the tightest ever accuracy specification from a Swiss manufacturer!

    Probably too big for me at 41.

    Perhaps the most interesting aspect, tho, is they're asserting 5 SPY. And a wholly new movement series? Checking on ETA's site, I don't see the movement in their Overview. Wonder how long the enhanced battery life will be.

    I think these are gonna be up there, tho. Maybe not GS price point, but I suspect they'll be in that ballpark.

    IAHH is there: https://www.longines.com/novelties/conquest-vhp

    The only watch news that could excite me more would be one of a new Oysterquartz. Finally, a new masterpiece by Longines. The lume looks green, so maybe this one will have real lume. Unfortunately, no human size (36-37mm)...

    Here some info on prices and wristshot, showing that the watch is too big : http://www.watchtime.com/wristwatch-...tz-revolution/

    That's unexpected ! Too bad the price is probably going to be "silly" and like the recent ETA HAQs they're unlikely to be user adjustable...

    I wonder why they mention a 400Hz motor, could that mean a sweeping second ?

    Also that looks like the first PC HAQ Chronograph ?

    Interesting movement, but why make such a big sporty watch with only 5 atm WR? I'll sit out this round, especially given the impending 100th anniversary of Citizen in 2018 and the Seiko Astron's 50th one in 2019. Maybe they'll issue more models with better WR and slimmer design in the upcoming years.

    I informed my AD about these watches. He will get back to me when he has prices and release dates.
    I wonder if a three handed person can adjust the new movements?
