The Hydroconquest GMT - Longines’ Evergreen Watch. Literally!

The new Hydroconquest GMT watches from Longines have been released in olive green, blue and black sunray dial options and come sized at 43mm cases for utilising in or out of the water.  


The Longines Hydroconquest is the Swiss Maison’s reliable dive watch collection. Now the brand extends the family with several new colour combinations, including a captivating olive green variation that is sure to get noticed wherever and however it is worn.

Why Buy the Hydroconquest?


If you’re in the market for a good value-for-money dive watch – the Hydroconquest is the place to begin and end your search. It’s everything you need in a dive watch and it won’t break the bank. People love the Hydroconquest because of its neat proportions and sturdy construction. Some of the top models in the range come in ceramic. Most, however, feature a tough stainless steel case integrated with 300-meter water resistance. There are chronograph versions available also, powered by automatic movements and equipped with column wheel arrangements. Of course, being a dive watch, the Longines Hydroconquest GMT like the ones you see here today benefit from a unidirectional rotating bezel. Additionally, you get the GMT function with these models, making them perfect for travel. Those looking to take the watch underwater for a spot of scuba diving can take advantage of the Swiss brand’s innovative and practical extension system integrated into some of the bands. It makes them perfect for wearing over the top of wetsuits and rash guards.


Green has been a popular colour in the Longines Hydroconquest watch collection for some time. In fact, I’d be surprised if we don’t see a good amount of green dial watches to come of this year’s Geneva-based Watches and Wonders event. The colour made its debut in the dive watch line in 2020 and Longines also made some 41mm and 43mm models available with green accents. Above all, the Longines Hydroconquest watch is loved for its sporty, rugged architecture, taking inspiration from earlier Conquest dress watches.


With roots dating back to these 1950s Conquest watches, the collection has built a solid reputation for itself and is a go-to option for professional and amateur divers alike. For a minimal price difference, you can also acquire a two-tone timepiece from the collection with rose or yellow gold PVD accents that look incredibly luxurious. Some of the most adventurous colours, however, are found in those models that combine stainless steel with ceramic.







The New Longines Hydroconquest GMT watches

Of all the new releases from the Hydroconquest GMT range, the new olive green dial option is my favourite. There‘s also a black dial option with sporty orange accents and a blue option with light blue accents. Both models come with a colour-matching ceramic bezel and in a choice of a stainless steel bracelet or a respective back or blue rubber band.


The entrancing green sunray dial of this Hydroconquest GMT watch is a nice little addition to any collection. It adds a touch of colour to the wrist without being too flashy. The yellow gold-coloured accents on the dial and the details on the bezel, however, elevate the watch to a dressier level. The black ceramic material chosen for the bezel, with a yellow-golden 60-minute scale, is a really nice choice. It brings the entire dial together, framing it beautifully. The hour track on the display features a triangular marker at 12 o’clock and a mix of baton and circular markers for the rest of the locations. At the 3 o’clock location, you can reference the date window, set against a tone-on-tone wheel. The minute and hour hands have been treated with Super-LumiNova material to grant you access to vital information on the dial while exploring daring underwater depths.


Being a luxury dive watch, Longines equips these new Hydroconquest GMT watches for 2024 with a unidirectional rotating bezel which means that the bezel will only rotate in one direction – the counter-clockwise direction. The feature eradicates the risk of you accidentally knocking the bezel during a dive and extending your remaining dive time underwater – a scenario we all know carries critical risks. You can set a reference point with the bezel before beginning your dive by aligning the 0 point on the bezel with the dial’s central minute hand. As time elapses, all you need to do is glance at the watch to see how much time has passed since starting the dive. Beyond diving, however, the bezel has other practical uses in daily life. It can be used as a parking meter timer or utilised during cooking. Only those who have owned a watch with a unidirectional rotating bezel before can appreciate the meticulous engineering behind this feature and how it serves a crucial role on a watch like the Longines Hydroconquest GMT watch.  



Longines Hydroconquest GMT 43 Duo




These 43mm models are all crafted from stainless steel and feature ceramic coloured dials and a screw-down crown for upholding the watch’s 300-meter water resistance. Other features of these new watches include the colour-tipped GMT hand. Able to stand out with its triangular feature at the end, the GMT hand parades the dial, providing an additional feature that reads from a 24-hour scale around the flange. The olive green model is accented in black, while the black and blue models feature orange and light blue accents respectively. Each timepiece is also equipped with a piece of sapphire crystal glass that has been treated with anti-reflective technology to avoid any undesirable glare hitting the surface of the dial.


For me, the appeal of these new Longines Hydroconquest GMT watches is their blend of expert materials and rugged styling. Not only can these watches adapt to incredible pressures, but they have evolved in ways that are unmatched in the industry, offering exceptional value for money and some pretty nice dial colours too.
