The brand added reimagined variations to this line in 2018 with timepieces that preserve the traditional style of diving watches, inspired by the unique requirements of the sport. The highlighted model in Gothenburg features a blue sunray dial completed by a highly technical and innovative ceramic bezel matching the colour of the dial.

Longines’ passion for equestrian sport dates back to 1878, when it produced a chronograph engraved with a jockey and his mount. Three years later, it can be found on American racecourses, adopted by horse enthusiasts. In 1912, the company partnered for the first time with an international show jumping competition. Today Longines’ involvement in equestrian sports includes show-jumping, flat racing, endurance, driving, dressage and eventing competitions.Discover the Blue Horse
