This year, Longines’ HydroConquest GMT line has been enhanced with new models with 43 mm diameter cases. Water-resistant up to 30 bar (300 metres), robust, and with a unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel, screw-in crown and screw-down case back, this collection is inspired by the world of water sports. Like the 41 mm models launched in 2023, the new HydroConquest GMTs feature an exclusive Longines movement with multiple time zones and offer a choice of colours and materials.

The new HydroConquest GMTs offer a choice of a black, blue or green dial, and feature a sapphire crystal with a multi-layer anti-reflective coating. The indexes are coated with Super-LumiNova®, for easy reading in all conditions. They are round at 6 and 9 o’clock, and triangular at 12 o’clock. The date is displayed clearly through the window at 3 o’clock. The arrow-shaped GMT indicator matches the colour of the dial decals. On the bezel, the 24-hour scale is displayed in two tones to mark the transition between night and day.

The exclusive Longines GMT calibre L844.5, equipped with a silicon balance spring and innovative components made of non-magnetic materials. This movement’s resistance to magnetic fields is more than ten times greater than the ISO 764 reference standard. It boasts extreme precision and a power reserve of up to 72 hours.

The new models are paired with stainless steel bracelets with H-shaped links, or blue or black rubber straps. For added comfort, all bracelets feature a double-safety folding clasp with micro-adjustment.
