The Longines Avigation Watch Type A-7 1935; Heritage; July 2020
回溯经典 浪琴表推出经典复刻系列A-7型1935空中导航腕表

浪琴表推出经典复刻系列A-7型 1935空中导航腕表,致敬航空的黄金年代。自20世纪初以来,浪琴表一直与航空业及飞行先驱保持密切联系。这枚新品灵感来源于1935年美国空军向浪琴表订购的表款。名为“A-7”型,意味着这些腕表需要在设计、耐用性及精准度上满足极为严苛的要求。



同时为满足空中飞行时的调校需求,让飞行员佩戴手套时也可使用,腕表在12点处设有凹槽单按钮表冠,仅需按动,就可操控多种计时功能:启动、停止、归零。如今的全新A-7 型1935空中导航表也保留了这一特别设计。




遵循原型表款的设计细节:哑光黑表盘上饰有醒目的阿拉伯数字时标与轨道状刻度圈,确保清晰读时。 教堂指针上涂有Super-LumiNova夜光涂层,彰显低调优雅。



New Longines Family Member, Bryan Balsiger
The young Swiss prodigy of show jumping Bryan Balsiger joins the Longines Family

The Swiss watchmaking brand Longines is proud to announce that the young prodigy of show jumping Bryan Balsiger joins the Longines Family as a Friend of the Brand.


Born into a family of riders who runs an equestrian centre in Corcelles, Switzerland where he grew up, horse riding seemed an obvious choice for Bryan who took up the reins for the first time when he was just 5 years old. Having discovered a real source of inspiration from his family, today alongside his father who is also his trainer, Bryan is developing his career.


At the young age of 23, the talented rider already has an impressive track record of victories. After becoming the European Young Riders champion in 2017 in Samorin, Slovakia, he made his debut in the Elite category in 2018 and claimed victory at the Swiss Championship in Humlikon. He then joined the Swiss team the same year and took part in the Final of the Longines FEI Jumping Nations CupTM in Barcelona. The following year with the same team he won one of the qualifying stages of this competition in La Baule before achieving a memorable victory on Clouzot de Lassus at the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ in Oslo. These excellent results also allowed him to enter the Top 100 best riders of the Longines Rankings and qualify for prestigious Final of the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ in Las Vegas, which unfortunately was unable to take place this spring. 


Bryan Balsiger comments: “I’m really proud to join the Longines Family. I am honoured to be associated with this brand, which is a major player in equestrian sports and an emblematic company in the region where I grew up. I’ll make sure to proudly represent Longines with its values of performance and precision that are essential to my life as an athlete.”   

Longines and equestrian sports


The winged hourglass brand’s passion for the equestrian world dates back to 1869 with the release of its first pocket watch to feature a horse head. In 1912, the brand became involved with an international show-jumping competition in Portugal and almost a century later, in 2013, it became the first Fédération Equestre Internationale’s (FEI) Top Partner and Official Timekeeper. Today, Longines’ commitment to equestrian sports includes show jumping, dressage, combined driving, eventing and horse-racing events.

Prix de Diane Longines 2020
Fancy Blue is the new queen of the Prix de Diane Longines

The 171st edition of the Prix de Diane Longines held at the idyllic Chantilly racecourse on July 5th 2020, saw the triumph of Fancy Blue ridden by Pierre-Charles Boudot. The French jockey claimed victory for the second consecutive year as he already took first place in 2019 with Channel. Second place was taken by Alpine Star and Stéphane Pasquier followed by Peaceful ridden by James Anthony Heffernan. The three winning fillies have one thing in common, all three are trained in Ireland.

As the Title Partner and Official Timekeeper of the event, Longines was proud to celebrate Fancy Blue’s performance by granting her owners, trainer and jockey with elegant timepieces.

The Official Watch of the 2020 Prix de Diane Longines

This edition of the Prix de Diane Longines was also an occasion for the brand to highlight the Longines DolceVita collection. Since its creation in 1997, this line has been an ode to the Italian sweet life. Soft and bright, warm and glamorous, like relaxing deep in thought on the terrace of a village square, strolling through the side streets of Rome, or enjoying a charming seaside respite. Inspired by a model from the 1920s and characterized by its rectangular case, this collection has grown over the years without ever losing its identity.
