Longines have introduced a new Hydroconquest in khaki and green . https://www.hoursandminutes.co/introducing-longines-hydroconquest-now-in-tones-of-khaki-and-bright-green/

I think it's the dog's, and I want one. Here's hoping Parnis make a version I can afford 

RRP = £1230

Terrible design overlook with the latest Hydroconquests. 

The "12" and the "6" replace the marker pips , but the "9" sits along side one !?!? Seriously !?!?

[ It made more sense with the previous versions , because they had inner mini baton markers inside the pips ]

Dial numbers and plots seem at odds. I guess with the date they had to have a plot at 3. In which case maybe the 9 should have been left off. An nd version would be better. Then they could have a full set of plots and the 9 and 3. Nd would improve it a lot. Not for me as it is. They dont seem to beable to ever get the dial right on this one

i always viewed the HC as an entry level swiss diver from a brand with a good history, and at 800 quid a bargain, but i never felt it was a watch that could cut it over a grand, i guess theyve added things that are better than standard, but its like a Ford Ghia its still a Ford and not a BMW.

I like this, agree with others in that pip and numeral are odd at 9. That said the grained dial and the colour work nicely. I saw the first pic on rubber and didn't like it, when I saw it on SS I felt the opposite.

I can well believe that "one watch" types could own and wear this without wanting anything else. Even polyhorological types might well find this gets a great deal of wrist time.

Was reading somewhere it comes in 2 sizes 41mm and 43mm...

is the £1200 price for the rubber strap I thought it was over £2k on the bracelet

Be interesting to see one in the flesh to see what the Dial looks like in real life

Not sure there will be many discounts around being such a new piece but always try regardless.. 

Not a fan of the tiny date IMO just needs to be a Gnats **** larger..

Yeh but on the older ones the inner mini-baton markers diffuse everything. I think your iteration of the watch is the classic one along with the one before it.

This later one just looks like they have shoe-horned a dial to fit a movement ...

Longines don't usually price differently for strap/bracelet.

The New hydro is £1230 with strap or bracelet.
