Longines Concas V.H.P. Watches, Creating New Achievements In Quartz Watches

Longines launches the new Concas V.H.P. watch (high-precision watch), praising the 185th anniversary of excellence in watchmaking tradition and timekeeping. This also marks the resurgence of Longines in the 1980s: with professional watchmaking technology, it is a pioneer in the field of timekeeping. The new Comcast V.H.P. watch was officially released at the monumental Neuchâtel Observatory in Switzerland. In 1954, Longines launched the first atomic precision quartz clock here. The Longines Concas V.H.P. watch has achieved a major breakthrough in the field of quartz chronographs, combining extraordinary timekeeping accuracy, superb technical content and sporty appearance, achieving its elegant and unique temperament.

   Looking back on the development of 185 years, Longines has always been accompanied by technological innovations, and has continuously challenged the higher precision and performance in the field of timing. As far as quartz timing is concerned, Longines created the first quartz clock in 1954 and set a record of timing accuracy at the Neuchatel Observatory in Switzerland. This ‘Chronocinégines’ timekeeping device, which made history in the field of timekeeping, is equipped with this quartz clock. The device can take 100 frames per second, and mark the time recorded by the quartz clock on each image, so that the timing accuracy is as high as 1/100 second, and the referee can clearly track the moment when the athlete crosses the finish line. In 1969, Longines relied on its superb technology to create the ‘Ultra-Quartz’ watch. In 1984, Longines launched the Concas V.H.P. watch. Its quartz movement set a new record for accuracy at the time.

   Today, Longines launches the new Concas V.H.P. watch, which continues the glorious history symbolized by the flying wing hourglass logo. This watch is equipped with an exclusive movement developed by ETA for Longines. This exclusive movement is known for its outstanding travel time accuracy, with an error of only ± 5 seconds per year. At the same time, it uses a GPD (Gear Position Detection) system that resets the hands after the watch is affected by a magnetic field. In addition to these attractive features, the movement is also equipped with extremely long battery life and perpetual calendar function. The new watch combines precision technology and sports aesthetics, continuing the essence of the Concas series as a sports watch series of Longines, which has become a new benchmark for ultra-high precision watches.
   This stainless steel watch is available in a variety of styles, including a three-hand calendar with a case diameter of 41 or 43 mm, and a chronograph with a case diameter of 42 or 44 mm. The chronograph watch indicates hours, minutes and seconds, a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, a 12-hour counter at 9 o’clock, and a 60-second chronograph hand at the center of the dial. Each watch is adjusted via a smart crown. The EOL display will signal when the battery is about to run out. Concas V.H.P. watches are available in blue, carbon black, silver, black and other dial styles. The model is equipped with a stainless steel bracelet and a folding safety clasp.
