Longines Expands the HydroConquest GMT Series With New 43mm Case Size


Continuing to expand its HydroConquest watch series, Longines has added a new 43mm case size option for its HydroConquest GMT model.

Last summer, the watchmaker updated the once-popular classic model with a sleeker dial design, available in a 41mm case size and three dial colorways. With the new size variant, all dial decorations have been scaled up slightly to fit its updated proportions but have retained the same design and build as its 41mm-sized counterparts. This includes its sunray-finished dial, 3 o’clock date, GMT hand, a unidirectional rotating bezel with ceramic insert, rhodium-plated adornments and polished gold-plated “old radium” indices and markings for the green colorway.

Synonymous with its other sizes, the new HydroConquest GMT 43mm runs on Longine’s L844.5 caliber. The movement provides up to 72 hours of power reserve and is capable of withstanding up to 300 meters underwater.

Available in five colors and strap variations, the stainless steel bracelet option is priced at $2,975 USD, while the rubber strap version retails for $2,775 USD. The new 43mm HydroConquest GMT is now available to shop online and at Longines’ official boutiques as well as authorized distributors.
