Longines continues its tradition as timekeeper for equestrian sports and unveils a new model to add to its Conquest collection, the Conquest 1/100th Horse Racing, a silver faced range of the Conquest 1/100th.
Longines, timekeeper for sporting performances since the end of the 19th Century, is launching a new line of watches that have been specially created for sports which require high precision timing. The Conquest 1/100th series responds to the needs of athletes, professionals and sports fans, besides many others, since it measures multiple intermediary times and has an intuitive analogue display that shows the time to
one hundredth of a second using a separate hand.
The Conquest 1/100th Horse Racing chronograph, which keeps time to one hundredth of a second, features a new unique quartz movement, the L440. This new model includes a microcontroller with a flash memory that allows the watch to be reset instantly and allows intermediary times to be recorded. With a diameter of 41 mm, this bright steel model has a silver face that displays hours, minutes, small seconds at 6 o'clock, the date and other
chronographic functions: a central seconds hand, a 30-minute stopwatch at 2 o'clock and a 12-hour stopwatch at 10 o'clock. The hand in red displays time to one hundredth of a second and is the watch's crowning glory at the centre. The model is also fitted with a
steel bracelet and a butterfly clasp.
