Longines, a brand known for its rich heritage and precision timepieces, is making waves once again with the release of the Heritage Conquest Central Power Reserve. This re-edition of the historical Central Power Reserve model is a tribute to Longines’ legacy of innovative design and timeless style.
The Longines Heritage Conquest Central Power Reserve comes in three distinct variants, offering grey, black, or champagne-colored dials. What sets this timepiece apart is its unique dial-side power reserve indicator, a feature that was first introduced to the Conquest collection in 1959.
At the heart of this watch lies the Longines automatic caliber L896.5, providing an impressive 72-hour power reserve. The power reserve is ingeniously displayed on the dial, where an external disc rotates continuously, indicating the current state of wind. This sophisticated mechanism is both stylish and highly functional.
The Longines watch pays homage to its predecessor, the automatic ref. 9028, by retaining key design elements such as the alternating satin-finished and polished surfaces on the stainless steel case, the box sapphire crystal, and the iconic winged hourglass logo on the ribbed crown. The dial features two indented circles, creating a distinctive bullseye appearance. Applied hour markers, a trapezoid-framed date window at noon, and vintage-style indices enhance the retro charm of this timepiece.
For collectors and enthusiasts alike, the Heritage Conquest Central Power Reserve is a must-have addition to any watch collection. With its impeccable craftsmanship and historical significance, it’s a timepiece that captures the essence of Longines’ enduring legacy.
Available with black or grey alligator leather straps and a steel pin buckle, the Longines Heritage Conquest Central Power Reserve is now a part of the brand’s permanent collection, retailing at $5,810. Elevate your wristwear game with this exquisite blend of heritage and modernity from Longines.
