1972 Longines Conquest Munich Olympic Games
Founded in 1832, Longines has always played a great role in the watchmaking industry for its watches and movements which, even today, are considered as some of the most reliable and precise.
Made in 1972 to celebrate the Olympic Games in Munich, this piece is a testimony of the long partnership between Longines and the Games of the modern era. Since their creation, the St Imier company has been their official timekeeper 27 times.
Also produced with a grey dial, this is in our opinion the nicest model, thanks to its vibrant blue dial. Made for easy and fast time-readiing, it offers high contrasts thanks to white hands and large tritium indexes and a white tachymetric scale. This watch has a strong identity of a timekeeper with only one pusher at 2 o’clock and an remarkable orange sweep second hand. It comes in a brushed screw-back case with its original and rare steel bracelet, allowing the whole to perfectly sit on the wrist.
Mechanically, it is powered by the in-house 334 caliber. Like other Longines movements, this caliber is reliable, precise and robust.
Additionnally, this watch is close to new condition. A rare opportunity.
