Hello, my name is yuval.
i received a few watches from my grandfather - 3 of them were record-longines and one which i cant recognize:
Watch Analog watch Photograph Light Everyday carry
Finger Creative arts Amber Body jewelry Thumb
Watch Liquid Light Fluid Amber


as you can see it has no model and there's nothing at the back. i was told that it is gold.
after some googling i found this sucker:
RARE SQUARE MODEL Mens 18k Gold Vintage Longines Conquest Automatic Watch | eBay
which is very similar.

could it be that mine is fake, reconstructed (although it was brand new when i got it) or could it be that mine is also a conquest?

BTW what's the story behind conquest?

THANX!!

Hello Yuval, and welcome.

If it belonged to your grandfather, there's every reason to believe it is genuine. Longines had several models that didn't have a model name printed on the dial. Carefully open the watch up. A gold hallmark is probably stamped on the inside of the back of the case. How about a photo or two of the watch's movement?

Just take a thin-bladed knife, insert the edge between the two halves of the case and twist. Do it slowly and carefully.
You don't want the knife to slip and scratch the case.




(you probably don't want to cut yourself either!)
