To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the filing of the patent for its "Conquest" brand, Longines presented, during the BaselWorld 2014 show, the Conquest Heritage 1954-2014 collection, four models directly based on the first Conquest models.
All the dials have dauphine hands and the word "Conquest" inscribed on the dials in the original typeface. Hands and applied indices are coated with Super-LumiNova.
The case has a diameter of 35 mm with a hesalite glass and, just like the original versions, the case back of these commemorative timepieces is decorated with a gold and enamel medallion, the "gold seal of Longines quality", a guarantee of quality that was specific to the original Conquest line. There are two versions of the medallion: the one used for the models in gold is in the form of a constellation, the one for the models in steel represents a fish.

The movement is the self-winding Calibre L633 based on the ETA 2824/2 beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour and offering a power reserve of 38 hours.
Fitted on a black alligator strap, the Conquest Heritage 1954-2014 models are all numbered. The gold versions in gold are limited to 60 pieces while the steel model is limited to 600 pieces.
