Here we have a 70 'Conquest' from Longines in a 36.5mm gold plated case and housing a high beat impressive movement.
The Conquest took on a different form in the 70s from a dressier case used in the 60s to a thicker sturdier case and more sporty look. This particular model is from the early to mid 1970s and houses an impressive movement.
The cal 6942 is unique in that it is a hi - beat movement (beating at 28,800bph) and that is has a 'zeroing' hack feature where when the crown is pulled out the seconds hand continues until 12 then stops. This allows for exact setting of the time.
The silvered dial has applied baton hour markers and arabic numerals at the quarters with gilt stick hands. The case has a brushed gold plated top and polished finished sides. The case back is screw down stainless steel and has a faint presentation inscription.
The crystal is plexiglass.
We have fitted a quality dark bron leather strap to this timepiece.
