Steel Longines Conquest Ref. 9000 /13 vintage wristwatch, circa 1956

A handsome stainless steel automatic centre seconds wristwatch two-tone dial

The Conquest was launched in 1954 and is one of Longines’ most iconic vintage designs. This is a lovely example of the model which has strong two-toning to the dial and multi-faceted gold indexes that are rich in colour. There is very light oxidation to the dial’s surface. The bold steel casing has a screw-down back which is centred with a gold and green enamel plaque bearing Longines’ water-resistant fish logo. The watch is powered by the Longines calibre 19AS, one of the company’s earliest automatic movements.

We have fitted the watch with a Lizard strap of similar styling to that used in a period UK advertisement for the model, shown below.
