Need to know Well, I bet nobody saw this coming … another day, another dive watch with a green dial. But is this new Longines HydroConquest a cynical marketing-based exercise aimed at cashing in on the peripheral hype caused by the Rolex Submariner Ref.116610LV? Or has Longines tried to create something truly unique in the space? Well, let's examine the watches. For a start, there's not one but two shades of green available. The first has been designated as "Khaki Green", while the other is what Longines describes as "a brighter green hue" when comparing it to the khaki *think of it as something akin to forest green. The Khaki Green HydroConquest will be made available in both 41mm and 43mm case sizes, while the forest green example will only be available in the 41mm stainless steel case. Both watches will come on either a stainless steel bracelet or matching rubber band. Swapping between these two options will also be a doddle, thanks to an easy to use quick-release function. The Khaki Green example will become a mainstay in the HydroConquest line-up, while the brighter forest green example will be a boutique-only exclusive. As is the case with the rest…
