Conquest 1/100th Alpine Skiing

Autumn’s burnished leaves are falling as winter’s chill draws near with its promise of pure snow and white mountains soon to be peppered with thousands of skiers. Longines has been the official timekeeper for the sport since 1933 and has designed a piece for born competitors and alpine ski enthusiasts to time to a 1/100th. Brought to life by a quartz movement in the 41mm steel case, the new Conquest has a black dial bearing the time functions (hours and minutes in the centre, small seconds at 6 o’ clock), chronograph features (minute counter at 2, hour counter at 10) and date display (at 4 o’ clock). The hours are interspersed by a minute track with the numbers 12 and 11 in applied indices beneath two large luminescent hands. Two slim hands in the centre point out the chronograph seconds and 1/100th (in red). Price: 1,300 CHF
