Equestrian Sports


Longines’ passion for the equestrian world dates back to 1869, when the brand crafted its first equestrian pocket watch found to date. Not long after, in 1878, Longines developed a famous chronograph movement, fitted in a case engraved with a jockey and his mount. Seen on the American racetracks since the late nineteenth century, this type of timepieces proved extremely popular among jockeys and horse-lovers, as it enabled its user to time performances to the second. Designed in the workshops of the factory of Saint-Imier, these first creations were the founding act of Longines’ involvement in the equestrian world.

The name of Longines thus very quickly became associated with sports timekeeping. While the brand was constantly pushing the boundaries of precision, its involvement in the equestrian world progressively intensified. In 1912, a new step was taken when Longines concluded its first official partnership with a show jumping event in Lisbon, Portugal, marking the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship with the discipline.

Throughout the years, countless equestrian competitions have enjoyed the qualities and reliability of the chronograph calibres and automated instruments that Longines has developed to time sports performances. As a result of its legitimacy and expertise, Longines’ involvement in equestrian sports today includes flat racing, show jumping, dressage and eventing disciplines.
