they said they were trying to find out what makes it tick.
Longines is a very underrated brand in my humble opinion. I used to own a Tag Aquaracer WA2111 automatic, it was a nice watch, but upon opening up the case back, it had the movement held in place by a cheap plastic spacer. The fit, finish, dial work on the Hydroconquest is much higher quality then my old Aquaracer, and a lot less expensive.
My LLD is one of the finest, most accurate mechanicals I have ever owned, it will never be flipped!
