It would perhaps be fairer to compare this Longines Conquest to a Constellation Deluxe, but I currently don’t own a neither a Deluxe nor a 1960’s Connie, so here it goes against my 1950’s Connie. My favourite watch – by far – is my 1956 Omega Constellation pie pan in 18K gold. I just love how the many facets reflect the light. It has a very sturdy feel to it. Last week a competitor arrived: The Longines Conquest Deluxe in pink gold. Is it able to give my dearly beloved Connie a run for its money? Fight time! Case: L Both watches have a very nice case. I daresay both look unpolished. The Longines even almost looks unworn. However, In this case them Connie lugs eek out a victory. Connie – Conquest 1-0 Dial Again, it would be fairer to compare the Longines to a Connie Deluxe with a solid gold dial, but this poor pleb doesn’t own a Connie Deluxe. Both dials have very striking designs. The pie pan dial perhaps is my favourite design element in watches. When I bought my second pie pan a while ago, my wife commented “what you need another spiderweb dial for?”. A FSOT thread on my wife on the For Sale forum might be due. I love how it reflects the light and looks different from every angle. However the Conquest does blow the Connie out the water in that department. The mirror faceted rim and the sunburst effect make sure for a bling factor that is out of this world. The Conquest wooed me Connie – Conquest 1-1 Movement I currently don’t have own pics of the cal. 505, so I had to borrow one from the Net. Not commenting on technical aspects here, but the Connie looks nicer. Red gold plating and the nice swan neck fine regulator beats the rather basic looking Longines Connie – Conquest 2-1 Medallion The Connie has one of the coolest medallions, but enamal is just 2.0 stuff Brings me to the total score: Connie – Conquest 2-2 With a gun held to my head, I'd choose the Connie, but only because I promised it to my son. Whenever the 6 year old wee bairn sees the thing, he never fails to remind me: "that one is mine <takes another sip from his apple juice>"
