Racing at Meydan 2018
November 07, 2018
As Official Partner and Official Timekeeper of Meydan and with a commitment to the equestrian arena that continues to grow stronger, Swiss watch brand Longines was proud to present a total of seven races at Meydan Rececourse in Dubai on the evening of November 8.
On this occasion, the winged hourglass brand presented the Official Watch of the event: a model from the sporty Conquest V.H.P. collection, displaying an elegant blue dial.
The new Conquest V.H.P. “Very High Precision” watch by Longines represents the ultimate step in quartz precision wristwatches, featuring timekeeping technology pioneered by the Swiss brand. This watch is equipped with a movement developed by the ETA manufacturing company exclusively for Longines. The movement of the Conquest V.H.P. is renowned for its high degree of precision for an analog watch (± 5 s/yr), and its ability to reset its hands after an impact or exposure to a magnetic field using the GPD (gear position detection) system. This Longines watch’s attractive features are further complemented by its superior battery life and a perpetual calendar.

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
