Longines takes its advanced V.H.P. – “Very High Precision” – quartz technology to the next level this year with the addition of a chronograph version. When Longines developed the forerunner of this movement in 1984, the goal was ultimate precision. Today, Longines’ newly developed V.H.P. calibre achieves an accuracy rating of +/- 5 seconds per year, partly because of its resistance to magnetic fields. A GPD (Gear Position Detection) system resets the watch’s hands after any impact or magnetic exposure. The movement was developed by ETA exclusively for Longines. The case, in either 42 mm or 44 mm diameter, is made of stainless steel with or without black PVD, with a choice of blue, carbon fibre, silvered or black dials. The Conquest V.H.P. is water resistant to 50 metres, rounding out its sports watch credentials.
