Like all the models in the Conquest Classic line, the official watch for the 2014 Longines Hong Kong Masters is fitted with a self-winding calibre. With a diameter of 40 mm, this model in steel and rose gold houses the mechanical caliber L619. Its silvered dial is set with 3 arabic numerals and 9 applied indices with Super-LumiNova® and displays the hours, the minutes and the seconds as well as the date at 3 o’clock. Just as the entire collection Conquest Classic, this timepiece is water-resistant to 5 bar and its screw-down case back is fitted with a sapphire glass.
