Been taking a break from all the boards. Figure I'll post how my big box has been shrinking (qty and size)......

Latest purchase (for a while now) when wifey and I were on a trip in the Mediterranean......

Behold, a 39mm time piece........*What a change*

Longines Conquest in blue dial with ceramic polish bezel. Actually I didn't know it was 39mm until I got home from the trip, looked at the specs. Wow, looks alright on my punnie wrist!






Current box (still in the process of trimming down)


Thanks for looking. Until next time!~

Very nice piece, although from the lack of lume on the hands, that is one of the older models, the one with the ceramic bezel has lume on the hands and the bezel is black.

Your model is also has a screw down crown and is 300m WR which is a gigantic plus for this watch.


Ceramic bezel Conquest.

Very nice!

Seems to wear quite large for 39mm. Just perfect!

The dial layout and hands give me the impression of a larger diameter piece.

Anyway, what a nice item to remember the Mediterranean adventure you and your wife enjoyed together.

Congrats!

Looks perfect XO ! :smile-thumb2:Funny how big 39mm actually is right?! Sometimes we get caught up in the what's big, must be better kind of thinking, but this looks terrific ! :) It not having a bezel helps a lot also, and allows you to appreciate that incredible blue dial. Hope you keep on enjoying this beauty. Huge congrats XO !

Hey 39mm? This explorer is 39mm, and looks wise yours gives it a run for it's money!



Here is my 42mm Kon Tiki next to the 39mm Explorer, I don't think the Explorer looks outrageously undersized to me?
