At the scene of the global launch event of the Comcast VHP watch, guests were able to temporarily withdraw from the highly connected modern world: as smartphones cannot be brought into the Neuchatel Observatory, guests will Completely immersed in the live experience. Under the observatory’s glass dome, a temporary museum opens its doors to guests, describing Longines’ technological innovations and achievements in history. The guests accompanied the explanation and proceeded slowly until they walked into a veritable exhibition hall and saw the true content of the V.H.P. At the same time, there is also an interactive space outside the observatory, where guests can appreciate and try on the models at close range, and interact with Longines’ global management team to end this wonderful journey.
The development history of Longines in the field of quartz timing has always been accompanied by technological innovation and achievements. In 1954, Longines created the first quartz clock and quickly set a record of timing accuracy at the Neuchatel Observatory in Switzerland. This ‘Chronocinégines’ timekeeping device, which made history in the field of timekeeping, is equipped with this quartz clock. The device can take 100 frames per second, and mark the time recorded by the quartz clock on each frame of the image, so that the timing accuracy is as high as 1/100 second, and the referee can clearly track the moment when the athlete crosses the finish line. In 1969, Longines relied on its superb technology to create the ‘Ultra-Quartz’ watch. In 1984, Longines launched the Concas V..P. Watch. Its quartz movement set a new record for accuracy at the time.
Today, Longines launches the new Concas V.H.P. watch, which continues the glorious history symbolized by the flying wing hourglass logo. This watch is equipped with an exclusive movement developed by ETA for Longines. This exclusive movement is known for its outstanding travel time accuracy, with an error of only ± 5 seconds per year. At the same time, it uses a GPD (Gear Position Detection) system to reset the hands after the watch is affected by vibration or magnetic fields. In addition to these attractive features, the movement is also equipped with extremely long battery life and perpetual calendar function. The new watch combines precision technology and sports aesthetics, continuing the essence of the Concas series as a sports watch series of Longines. Compared with the shortcomings of smart watches, such as the fluctuations in time and battery life, the Concas V.H.P. watch has also become a new benchmark for ultra-high-precision watches in its unique way.
This stainless steel watch is available in a variety of styles, including a three-hand calendar with a case diameter of 41 or 43 mm, and a chronograph with a case diameter of 42 or 44 mm. The chronograph watch indicates hours, minutes and seconds, a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, a 12-hour counter at 9 o’clock, and a 60-second chronograph hand at the center of the dial. Each watch is adjusted with an electronic crown. The E.O.L. display will signal when the battery is about to run out. Concas V.H.P. watches are available in blue, carbon black, silver, black and other dial styles.
