Does the name James Robinson look familiar? That might be because James is part of the team here at Time+Tide Watches and he writes quite prodigiously about watches. You might have read his story on Zenith’s new Land Rover collab today, or countless other times before. Well, we thought it was time we put a face to a name. Ladies and gentlemen, meet James!

James’ Longines HydroConquest

In this episode of Every Watch Tells A Story, James chose to talk about his indefatigable Longines HydroConquest (which he reviewed in detail here), which has been everywhere with him. And unfortunately, very recently that meant going with James from an upright position on a bike to splayed out on the concrete after a spill. The crown seemed to have made direct contact with the tarmac, and it’s been jammed in ever since. But did the movement stop ticking, even after the licking? Nope.
