This Quartz Watch Is Quite Special

In fact, quartz watches are not spectacular enough for this watch collection. This model, however, is so precise that our author makes an exception. Also because a goodie is added.

E s is a scene that almost breaks the heart of a watchmaker.Slowly, a strong magnet approaches the ticking clock, comes closer and closer until it is done: the pointer stops.Adieu, beautiful clock, I think, now you are resting in Nirvana.Too bad, that could have been something with you on my wrist.Then the magnet is removed again, and the surprising happens: The pointer makes a bounce, as if from the dead star, jumping to the place where it is without a magnetic stop, and ticks on cheerfully.

At this point, I rarely write about quartz clocks .If I do, it is something special.This is actually the case with the new Longines Conquest VHP, not only because of the immunity of strong magnets.The really special of the clock is announced in the abbreviation, VHP stands for “very high precision”, and incredibly precise is the clock in fact.

A maximum of five seconds, the timer deviates from the actual time – per year.This is a record-breaking value, which is never reached by normal quartz clocks.A common quartz movement has an accuracy of plus / minus 10 to 30 seconds per month.Clocks with deviation values ​​around the 25 seconds per year are considered high-precision, there are also models that create ten seconds.However, they are priced at fairly high rates.

The Longines factory is built by the Eta, and what the engineers have done reminds me of the good old times of watchmaking.It even leads us directly to their former core question: What must a clock can?A clock must display the time.And what does a good watch need?A good clock at TimeDictionary must accurately indicate the time.Historically there was a competition for the most accurate time display , and there were incredible performances.

Because maritime navigation was dependent on accurate clocks in the pre-GPS time, the market for marine chronometers was dominated by heavy competition.The high-precision products of Ulysse Nardin , often copied in the 1970s, are never quite achieved here.Of course there were also other milestones, around 1954 the “Chronocinégines” of Longines, a gray block with quartz movement , which was coupled to a special 16-millimeter camera.She was able to expose 100 photos per second and gave the umpires a strip on sporting events, which captured every movement of the athletes as they crossed the finish line, document by picture.

I think it is cool that a modern quartz clock is a nostalgic value, a high-precision time measurement becomes a topic and leads into new spheres.For a long time it seemed as if clocks were only about emotional values ​​and status – how precise a watch is really, no one seemed to be interested anymore.For small money, there were quartz clocks, which were exactly enough, a kind of “commodity”.

By the way: As a goodie, the Longines has an eternal calendar added, which is not seen right away.The clock knows exactly the date in 2400, so it knows whether the month has 28, 29, 30 or 31 days.

The battery of the watch lasts for years.This is also an achievement in itself.The watch from Longines is not a smart watch .But she is always smart.
