Longines Conquest 18kt
The Longines Conquest line was introduced in 1954 and, according to Longines, represented a "stepping-stone to progress". Today, vintage examples of the Conquest serve as excellent representations of classic mid-century dress watch design. The clean, straightforward look led to the success of this line, which allowed the brand to create various iterations of the model. From stainless steel to solid gold, Longines watches under the name Conquest held down the catalog for decades offering customers variety under the same clean aesthetic.

The example we have today depicts an ocean's wave under the deep blue of a starry night's sky. Beyond the beautifully finished dial and carved 18k case, this little caseback detail speaks volumes about Longines in this era. No expense was spared, no detail too small. Sure, the fancy medallion would sit against a wearer's wrist 99 percent of the time but, when the watch is taken off to show a friend, this medallion will stun. It is always great to see attention to detail at this level in a vintage watch.

The watch it comes with his original box and the extract of Archieves.
