Longines registered the name "Conquest" on May 5, 1954 with the Swiss Federal Office of Intellectual Property. It turned out to be a huge success in no time and won over many hearts.
Not surprisingly, however, the Longines "Conquest" had so many fine points such as; a robust case, waterproof, automatic and this model has a date, what more could you want in an everyday watch? But no expense has been spared, no detail too small, referring to the gold and enamel plaque, which sits on the caseback, purely for the owner to see every now and then.
The 9004 model was launched in 1955 and released to the general public in 1956. The significant detail of this line was the fish plaque. The 14k solid gold medallion with fish inlay and topped with a luscious bright green translucent enamel symbolizing the water the fish swam in, hence the 'waterproof' housing.
All these extra luxurious details symbolize the qualities guaranteed by the Longines brand; such as the high-quality all-in-house Longines automatic movement, caliber 19 ASD, which guarantees high accuracy, as well as anti-magnetic and shock resistance.
This mid-century Longines Conquest Calendar automatic is completely original, only the acrylic crystal has been renewed and an animal-friendly forest green canvas strap attached.
It has been given a thorough cleaning and fine tuning. The case is as found and has not received any polishing whatsoever, if desired it can be polished at no extra cost.
