Text: Faizal Dahlawia

It's an elevation of a decades-long history between Longines and quartz technology with the unveiling of the brand's latest horological must-have.

As Dubai gears itself for the Dubai World Cup this weekend, the title sponsor for the grand event, Longines, has launched its new quartz-powered masterpiece: the Conquest V.H.P.. The initials stand for Very High Precision, courtesy of an immaculate made-for-Longines-only movement as well as a self-resetting mechanism that allows for changes due to magnetic fields.

The new timepiece is available in either chronograph or three-handed calendar editions, set in 42mm and 44mm cases. Also featured is the end-of-life indicator to ensure that battery changes are always on time. Finally, the sporty yet elegant feel of the watch is further accentuated by the blue, carbon, silver or black dials while a steel bracelet rounds off the stunning aesthetic.
