Conquest 1/100th Roland Garros

The French Open, better known as Roland Garros, is a highlight in the tennis calendar. Longines has supported the fantastic Grand Slam tournament since 2007 and has designed a Conquest chronograph to coincide with the 2015 event. The 41mm steel case houses a quartz movement designed in collaboration with ETA to record split times. The calibre’s microcontroller with flash memory enables you to reset the watch instantly. Two luminescent spear-shape hour and minute hands glide above the steel dial whilst the seconds appear in a counter at 6 o’ clock and the date lies at 4 o’ clock. The clay courts’ orange glows on the chronograph markers (1/100th of a second hand, silver counter hands at 2 and 10 o’ clock, graduations on the chapter ring). Price: 1,500 CHF
