Longines Conquest Ref. 9000 -5 steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1955

A handsome steel automatic centre seconds wristwatch with rare two-tone combination numeral dial

Longines launched the ‘Conquest’ in 1954 and, today, the model is recognised as one of the watchmaker’s most iconic vintage models. The stylish two-tone dial of this example has an unusual combination of applied Arabic and tapered, multi-faceted indexes. Unlike the majority of examples of the Ref. 9000, this version does not have luminescent accents or panels to the hands. The bold steel casing has a screw-down back, centred with a gold plaque bearing Longines’ water-resistant fish logo and heightened with green enamel. The watch is powered by the Longines calibre 19AS, one of the company’s earliest automatic movements.
