Longines, the official Timekeeper of the French Open at Roland-Garros, presents a new chronograph dedicated to the greatest tennis tournament of modern times – the Longines Conquest Roland Garros Midsize.
The brand introduces a special new chronograph to its Conquest collection, a timekeeper that is able to measure time to one tenth of a second precision. This special edition is a tribute to the famous tennis tournament on clay courts, and it is specifically designed for sports that require high precision timing. The exclusive new movement is the latest generation quartz mechanism, which is developed by ETA, exclusively for Longines.
The Longines Conquest 1/100th Roland Garros is made of stainless steel, and it measures 36mm in diameter which sits a tad below today’s standards. The housing features a commemorative engraving “Roland Garros Paris” on the back. The dial or the flange indexes, coated with Super-LumiNova.
On the inside beats a unique new quartz movement, L538. The watch is water resistant to 300 meters, which makes it suitable even for scuba diving at depths.
Longines Conquest Roland Garros Midsize is mounted on a stainless steel bracelet with safety folding clasp. The watch is protected with sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating.
