The Longines Sport collection of watches celebrates the brand’s deep connections with all forms of sport since the launch of 20H, its first chronographic movement, in 1878. With the creation of multiple precise timekeeping instruments, Longines established its dominance in all things athletic, such as the Belmont Stakes, of which it is the official timekeeper. More notably, Longines was the official timekeeper of the first Modern Olympics, a fact which is commemorated by the Conquest sub-collection. The second variation of this line, the Hydroconquest, was created for divers across the globe. The Longines Sport, hence, embodies a unique blend of contemporary technology and enduring elegance, making it a favourite with the athletic watch aficionados.
Watches from the Longines Sport collection have a distinctive sporty appeal with their enlarged bezels available in multiple shades such as black, red, blue and silver. Their perfectly circular cases are made of stainless steel for long-enduring elegance. Pronounced extensions from the case house the crown and additional screws in each watch of this collection. Their crowns are fluted to impart an element of rugged appeal to the ensemble, as well as to ensure a secure grip while adjusting time. Protected by sapphire crystal casing, certain models boast multiple layers of anti-reflective coating for an unhampered view of time. The circular dials vary in tone from white to black, including unique shades of blue and mother of pearl. Hourly intervals of time are marked by new-age Arabic numerals and simple indexes, while specific versions are studded with brilliant diamonds. Longines adorns the bezels of some of these watches with diamonds as well for a glamorous dimension. Most watches come with exquisite dual-toned bracelets, while others sport durable rubber straps.
Most timepieces from the Longines Sport line come equipped with immaculate quartz movement for precise timekeeping functionality. Chronographic features on some of these watches, with multiple sub-dials and tracks, in addition to rectangular date windows, allow for an advanced horologic experience. Water resistant up to a depth of 300 metres, this collection offers true divers watches, upholding the Longines heritage.
