We’re delighted to announce that the new Longines Ladies Conquest Classic collection will be available exclusively at Goldsmiths, Mappin & Webb and Watches of Switzerland* for a limited time from 9 September. There are ten sporty steel timepieces, each embodying the elegance for which Longines is revered, with dials enhanced with mother-of-pearl, diamonds and pink-gold accents. Shop online or in-store.
Elegant watches for both day and night
Longines may be best known for its involvement in equestrian sports and competitions, but it’s also a partner of many other prestigious sports events – it acts as the official timekeeper for both the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup Finals and the Archery World Championships. The brand is celebrating this heritage with the release of its sporty Conquest Classic line. The ladies watches in the collection – our focus here – stay true to Longines’ values of elegance and tradition, and are simultaneously contemporary and timeless in their appearance.
It’s all about design
Longines’ Conquest Classic ladies pieces pay homage to feminine beauty in their delicate lines. A successful blend of modern yet classic, and beautiful yet practical, they are exquisite to look at, yet also surprisingly strong, thanks to their stainless-steel cases, available in two sizes: 29.5mm and 34mm. ‘At once elegant and sporty, the new Conquest Classic is a natural fit on my wrist. Its feminine lines and dynamic spirit make it a watch that suits my personality as an athlete and as a woman,’ commented Longines’ Ambassador of Elegance, two-time Olympic gold medallist and ski champion Mikaela Shriffin.
It’s important that a sports watch, particularly for ladies, is not only divine to look at but also durable. Longines’ Conquest Classic watches are presented on stainless-steel bracelets that incorporate triple-safety folding clasps, and their hardy cases are water resistant to 50m. We particularly favour the stunning 29.5mm designs: one edition shimmers with a silver dial, while another has an attractive deep blue dial (£650 each), and both have pale pink-gold hands and indexes. If you prefer something more sultry, there’s also a version with a black mother-of-pearl dial (£970) adorned with 11 glittering diamonds. An equally alluring option features a diamond-set bezel and a white mother-of-pearl dial set with sparkling 11 diamond-dot hour markers (£1,970). All of these glamorous new watches have a date window at 3 o’clock.
Exclusive, affordable, and attractive
The integration of a quartz movement makes the collection surprisingly affordable. The Conquest Classic ladies’ collection is currently available only to Goldsmiths, Mappin & Webb and Watches of Switzerland customers in our stores* for a limited time period from 9 September, so be sure to visit one of our showrooms soon to be among the first to view and purchase it.
*The watches will also be available in Longines’ own boutiques
