The Longines Conquest V.H.P. GMT Flash Setting: the watch made for frequent travelers.
Longines presents a real technological innovation based on quartz: the Conquest V.H.P. GMT Flash Setting. Sporty and elegant, this watch is a must for travel lovers. It allows you to easily change time zones either manually, following watchmaking tradition, or by using the smart ‘Flash Setting’ system that sets the watch using flash pulses from a smartphone. This timepiece has revolutionized both watchmaking precision and the user experience. With its second time zone and its ‘Flash Setting’ function, this watch expands Longines’ Conquest V.H.P. “Very High Precision” family, following the three-handed and chronograph versions.
Creation: In 1954, the brand’s first quartz clock sets a precision record at the Neuchâtel Observatory. It will eventually be fitted into the legendary Chronocinégines, a pioneering instrument in the history of timekeeping. In 1969, Longines’ technological expertise leads to the unveiling of the Ultra-Quartz, the first quartz movement designed for wristwatches.
Evolution: In a giant leap forward, 1984 sees the introduction of the first, ultraprecise Conquest V.H.P. quartz calibre.
Innovation: In 2017, Longines presents its new Conquest V.H.P. “Very High Precision” collection, driven by an innovative, quartz-based technology that has revolutionized the user experience. The V.H.P. technology is to quartz what the computer is to the typewriter: unprecedented technology, providing a unique and unrivalled experience.
Today, the Conquest V.H.P. “Very High Precision” line has expanded to include new GMT models. Like other variations available in this collection, the Conquest V.H.P. GMT Flash Setting houses an exclusive, cutting-edge movement that boasts a remarkable ability to simplify every aspect of the user experience: ultraprecision (±5 s/yr), Gear Position Detection (GPD) system that resets the hands after an impact or magnetic field exposure, smart crown, very long battery life and perpetual calendar that extends to 2399.
