Up for grabs is my Longines Conquest GMT in one of the most beautiful & deep dials ever created on a watch (in my opinion, of course). This one's a struggle for me, as I adore this watch, but it simply doesn't get any wrist time, and I recently purchased a Montblanc, and something has to go.

I might come off as the worst salesperson on this forum, as I'll list everything wrong with it in depth, but this is only so there are NO surprises for either you or myself. I want you to be 100% happy with your purchase and know EVERYTHING annoying/wonderful about this watch.

First off, this watch is BEAUTIFUL. I mean, that deal... just look at it. The high polish case is in pretty good condition, but does have a bit of swirlies/marks. I've taken high quality photos so that you can see everything, but the high polish itself does sort of make these difficult to capture at times, but they also make them difficult to see at a reasonable distance... so they are there, and hopefully they come through via the photos. The bracelet has standard swirlies but is in overall pretty good condition. There's a more noticable scratch on the case (where a bezel would be) near the 12 o'clock mark, but again, the high polish makes this difficult to capture. The crystal is in perfect condition with no scratches or marks. This watch has a great size at 41mm, but is a bit thick at 15mm. I have smaller wrists and it wears very nicely.

One thing some people love & some people get annoyed with this watch is the movement... it's NOISY. I find it endearing. If you're in a quiet meeting and flick your wrist just right, people will possibly hear this thing whirling away as it winds. If unfamiliar with this sound, it can come off as problematic, but it's well documented on this forum and others & is completely normal. If you have any questions about this, I can send you many links from all over the internet about this noisy Longines.

I've been closely timing the watch for accuracy and here's what I've observed:
Manually wound, no wrist/watch winder used:
+8 Seconds within 24 Hours
+9 Seconds within 24 Hours

I then ran it all day on my Wolf watch winder and it came back with a +23 seconds, which I wasn't a fan of. I then ran it half a day on the Wolf watch winder and half off the winder and I came back at +15 seconds.
So depending on its use, I'm seeing +8-+23 Seconds.

From my observation, off a winder with no movement, this stays relatively accurate, on a winder, it runs a bit fast. I would assume on the wrist you might see a +10 to 15 second per day. I've never noticed a major problem, as all of my watches need some adjustments after a while. If this variance bothers you, this could be a simple de-magnetizing fix, or could need a service if you really wanted to close that gap. Because of this variance, my asking price is lowered
