The Longines HydroConquest model, launched 10 years ago, stands out in the fierce market competition with its clean and pragmatic lines. As part of the brand’s main sports collection, this modern design has experienced multiple iterations. Includes a new version of colored ceramic on the bezel. The series is now taking another step in this direction. The entire cast of the new watch is made of ceramic. This is the new Longines HydroConquest full black ceramic diving watch L3.718.104.22.168.
This all-Sickey HydroConquest is a dynamic dive watch with all the features of the latest additions to the collection. Especially for the first time, the case is made of high-tech, scratch-resistant black ceramic with a zirconium oxide ZrO2 mark on the dial and the same material used by Omega on the SM300. This watch is available in different versions of the Concas sports watch. Out of the box, L3.722.214.171.124 has an invisible, whole-black appearance, while giving it a modern, sporty personality.
In addition to the new material, this new version has the same housing as the steel model, with a diameter of 43 mm and a slender lug that is still water-resistant to 300 meters. The one-way diving bezel is now a solid ceramic block that rotates smoothly and accurately. In the most watch update, the design of the crown guard has been slightly modified to accommodate the replicas of ceramic production. The crown guard securely holds the spiral crown and is not too abrupt. The hourglass logo with the wings of the Longines is printed on the back of the case.
On the dial, all instructions are clear at a glance. The white Super-LumiNova Super Luminous Coating handles raised hands and large Arabic numerals to ensure excellent contrast readability under all conditions. Sapphire crystal glass has a multi-layer anti-reflective coating on both sides, almost no visible glare.
The inner movement of the Longines HydroConquest whole-black ceramic watch is identical to the other versions and is still based on the L888 automatic movement based on the ETA A31-L01. With a diameter of 25.60mm and a height of 3.85mm, the movement is a redesigned version of the ETA-2892 that decelerates to 25,200 vibrations per hour and provides an upgraded power reserve of up to 64 hours (rather than 50 hours). The function displays the date at the 3 o’clock window.
