Longines has long been associated with equestrian elegance, as its ads featuring Oscar winner Kate Winslet and Simon Baker, star of CBS’ “The Mentalist,” attest. Now the watch brand has added to its stable of Conquest Classic chronographs that dates from 1954 with the Conquest Classic Moonphase.
“This model will appeal to those who are looking for a refined chronograph to be worn amidst the excitement of the most prestigious equestrian events all over the world,” the company says.
With a diameter of 42 millimeters (1.7 inches), the Moonphase houses a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement. The case is available in steel, steel and rose gold cap or 18-karat rose gold. The black or silvered dial complements the moonphase display.
Among the features are a 12-hour counter, a subdial for the seconds, a 30-minute couter and a date display.
The Moonphase is water resistant to 50 meters, or 164 feet, and has a transparent case back so you can see all the action. The watch comes with a black alligator strap or a bracelet in steel or steel and rose gold cap.
All are outfitted with a triple folding safety clasp as you wouldn’t want to lose this gem.
