CONQUEST V.H.P.
Based on its many years of experience with quartz, the winged hourglass brand is now
presenting its new Conquest V.H.P., equipped with an exclusive, cutting-edge movement.
This movement is renowned for its high degree of precision for an analog watch
( ± 5 sec / year) and its ability to reset its hands after an impact or exposure to a magnetic
field, using the GPD ( Gear Position Detection ) system. These attractive features are
likely responsible for its exceptional movement status, to which a very long battery life
and a perpetual calendar must be added.
In the true essence of Conquest, the ultimate sports line, this exceptional timepiece
brings together high technicality and dynamic aesthetic. In its own way, and compared
to connected watches whose disadvantages in terms of waves and recharging batteries
it does not have, the Conquest V.H.P. has positioned itself as the standard-bearer of
extreme precision.
These watches are available in the 3 hands / calendar (41 and 43 mm diameter cases )
and chronograph (42 and 44 mm diameter cases) versions. The chronograph displays
hours, minutes and seconds, a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, a 12-hour counter at
9 o’clock and a 60-second counter in the centre.
On each model, changes are made using the intelligent crown, while the E.O.L. indicator
can preventatively signal the end of battery life. The Conquest V.H.P. collection models
display blue, carbon fiber, silver-coloured or black dials.
MAIN FEATURES
ULTRAPRECISION OF ± 5 SECONDS PER YEAR
The watch ensures the display of hours, minutes and
seconds to an accuracy of ± 5 sec / year. This extreme
accuracy is achieved through an ultra-precise quartz
combined with time display correction in the event of
a disturbance.
GPD SYSTEM
The GPD system (Gear Position Detection ) is the watch’s
key device. It allows to automatically reset the hands
after a shock or exposure to a magnetic field, either
immediately, or at 3am if the problem isn’t resolved right
away. The GPD system also includes automatic correction
at 3am every three days to ensure the precision.
• Magnetism
Sensors detect the presence of magnetic fields. Above
a certain threshold, the display freezes, although the
time is still being counted. As soon as the watch moves
away from the magnetic fields, the display immediately
corrects itself.
• Shock
In case of a shock up to 500G, the display is immediately corrected. In the event of stronger shock, the correction occurs automatically thanks to the GPD system.
PERPETUAL CALENDAR
The watch is equipped with a perpetual calendar that
no longer requires correcting the date. The calibre does
not allow one to move the time forward or backward
more than one day, in order to avoid disrupting the
perpetual calendar.
LONG-LIFE BATTERY
The battery lasts more than 4 years and the watch
signals the end of battery life by making one of its
hands jump every five seconds. If the battery is not
replaced during the E.O.L. ( end of life ) phase, the
system goes into E.O.E (end of energy) mode by setting
the watch hands to 12 o’clock. You have then 6 months
to change the battery.
SMART CROWN
The smart crown allows to set the time minute by
minute or hour by hour (quick setting), by turning the
crown either slowly or vigorously. When changing the
time (in summer/winter, for example), the movement
automatically repositions the second and minute hands
to the exact position of the previous time, therefore
ensuring extra precision.
CONQUEST V.H.P. 3 HANDS
INTELLIGENCE
• Perpetual calendar on all versions.
• Calendar position detection.
• The shock detector detects shock and holds the hand
back during the shock. The GPD system helps correctly
reposition the hands after shocks ( if they are very
strong and the shock detector was unable to hold
the hands back ) or after exposure to magnetic fields.
• Smart crown.
•Time zone change ( hour movement ) without losing
the second.
• Very high accuracy in time setting to the second.
DISPLAY
• Hours, minutes, seconds in the middle.
• Date window.
• Perpetual Calendar.
• E.O.L. and E.O.E. indicators ( preventively signals the
end of battery life ).
ADVANTAGES
• No more date correction needed.
•The watch autocorrects itself in case of shock or
after exposure to magnetic fields to maintain its
display accuracy.
• Manipulations are simplified thanks to the smart crown.

FIRST USE AND RESYNCHRONISATION
THE WATCH IS DELIVERED IN ‘ENERGY-SAVING’ MODE
The crown is extended, the hands are at twelve o’clock. Once the crown has been pushed
in, the watch automatically changes to the Swiss time and date. It must then be set to
the local time. If the user extends the crown once again, the hands return to twelve
o’clock and the watch goes back into ‘energy-saving’ mode after one minute. Once the
crown has been pushed in, the watch automatically changes to the local time.
ADJUSTING THE TIME
Pull the crown out to position . Adjust the hands by
turning the crown in either direction. The time can be
set minute by minute or hour by hour (quick setting ),
by turning the crown either slowly or vigorously .
Push the crown back in to position .
The perpetual calendar no longer requires correcting
the date.
RESYNCHRONISATION
If the battery is exhausted ( or removed from the movement more than one day), the
watch needs to be totally resynchronised (reprogrammed). All the functions are affected.
If the battery is removed from the movement less than one day, only the hour needs to
be resynchronised.
Only approved service centres are authorised to change the battery and synchronise
Conquest V.H.P. watches.
