The HydroConquest has been Longines’ sole diving watch range for over 10 years now, and well-poised for a quick refresh. Historically, the Swiss watchmaker has always made dressier timepieces, but with the increased demand for sportier tunes timed perfectly with the revival of mechanical watches, Longines deemed it an apt time to woo the sports-conscious generation.
While the Longines HydroConquest Ceramic Replica Watches has been updated before, each time with subtle changes to the design, size, dial text, color, or strap and bracelet set up, the Longines HydroConquest Replica Watches is in general a 41mm, 300m water-resistant stainless steel diver with a traditional aluminum bezel insert and a sapphire crystal. Though long considered a solid option in the affordable dress diver space, the HydroConquest was due for an update to keep the watch current in a fickle market. Offering the watch in new sizes helps broaden the appeal, with a new 43mm version to suit those after a larger wrist presence.
The case, bracelet, crown, and other elements on the Longines HydroConquest Green Replica Watches are unchanged, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing as the watch has long represented a solid value in entry-to-mid level Swiss divers. I’ve long appreciated the HydroConquest case. Rather than reproducing one of many classic diver designs, the HydroConquest case is big and solidly built, featuring large angular crown guards and high-for-the price level of finishing.
