Longines watches - Swiss aristocrats

If there are watches that implement the spirit of Switzerland, these are more likely Longines watches - reserved, aristocratic, very reliable and honored all over the world. Almost 140 years ago Longines brand proudly made an engraving "Machine made keyless lever" on their first models that meant that even in those distant times watches were equipped with a lever and did not require a winding key. And today if you see a logotype - a sand clock with the spread for flight wings, know: these are Longines watches in front of you that are honorably awarded such a number of Grand Prix and golden medals which are not possessed by a single brand in the world.

Many people know that Longines company is a timekeeper of the Olympic Games, unique achievements in the field of distant flights (over Atlantics), a partner of the championships in gymnastics and Formula-1 team. There is a widely known fact that due to the company sponsorship a World championship in hurdle racing called Longines FEI World Cup takes place. Excellent prizes including a luxurious watch that makes Longines Master Collection famous, a unique chronometer with chronograph function was created for the winners of every stage (there are 14 of them in total) in 2016. And official watches of this year Cup were represented by DolceVita collection the preview of women model of which took place right at the final stage of the competition.

Last year an official sponsor of horse races Qatar Prix De Larc De Triumphe was Longines Conquest Classic collection the main characteristics of which are accuracy, beauty, and reliability. The facades of ancient buildings on the central square of Paris, streets of the French capital were decorated with giant stylish billboards. The assers-by could see a photo of watches that were used to award the best horse racers there.

These are complex Longines Conquest Classic Moonphase watches the dial of which contains so much information that there was a risk to make it too overloaded. The creators of a new model have found a ridiculous solution: second and 24-hour hands were placed on one additional dial at the position of 9 o'clock. It is natural it was made marking with corresponding numerals an amount of work for each of them. A special marking on the dial was created instead of date aperture and a central hand with the bright distinguishing feature has an image of the young moon depicted on the edge. The chronograph counter (a 30-minute one) was placed on the top of the dial and united with the rectangular windows where the day of week and month are depicted and an impressive Lunar phase calendar was placed at the position of 6 o'clock. And a characteristic thin "deck" pattern helps to create the whole composition. As a result, perfect watches for sportsmen or travelers, stylish, respectable, with a laconically designed dial (taking into consideration what information it provides) were created.

Dozens of thousands of fans, who gathered to look at this competition, have happily welcomed winners who were given golden Longines watches for men with their qualities (exquisite accuracy, classic charm, elegance) which correspond with the most prestigious competitions in horse racing the best.
