LONGINES – Conquest 1/100th St Moritz

Nestled in the Grisons canton, Saint Moritz is one of the oldest ski and winter sports resorts in the world. It set the stage for the first Winter Olympics in Switzerland in 1928 then hosted it again twenty years later. It was also the first resort to have a ski lift in 1935. Its image is associated with the official sports timekeeper Longines which has devoted a watch to the resort: Conquest 1/100th St Moritz. The sturdy 41mm steel case houses a quartz movement which fuels the time, date and 1/100th second chronograph functions. The silver dial features an hour rim with an Arabic 12 numeral and metal baton indices all coated in Super-LumiNova®. The hours and minutes are tracked by two wide central hands whilst the seconds appear at 6. The chronograph minute counter lies at 3, the hours at 12 and the date is displayed at 4. Price: 1,300 CHF.
