Longines presents two models in
tribute to Roland Garros
A LONG-STANDING PARTNERSHIP
As the Official Partner and Timekeeper of the Roland Garros tournament since 2007, Longines launched two dedicated timepieces that encapsulate both the dynamic aesthetic of a sports watch and the classical elegance of the winged hourglass brand. These special editions both boast touches of orange subtly hinting at the iconic clay of the French Open courts.

A QUARTZ MOVEMENT DEVELOPED EXCLUSIVELY FOR LONGINES
Launched for the French Open at Roland Garros in 2015, the Conquest 1/100th Roland Garros is an exclusive edition enriching Longines Conquest 1/100th collection, a line of watches that have been specially created for sports which require high precision timing. These chronographs responds to the needs of athletes, professionals and sports fans, besides many others, since it measures multiple intermediary times and has an intuitive analogue display that shows the time to one hundredth of a second using a separate hand.

The demands required for Longines to reach such an extreme level of precision have led to the development of a new unique quartz movement, the L440. This new model includes a microcontroller with a flash memory that allows the watch to be reset instantly and allows intermediary times to be recorded. With a diameter of 41 mm, this steel model has an anthracite face that displays hours, minutes, small seconds at 6 o'clock, the date and other chronographic functions: a central seconds hand, a 30-minute stopwatch at 2 o'clock and a 12-hour stopwatch at 10 o'clock. The hand in orange displays time to one hundredth of a second and is the watch's crowning glory at the centre. This model is also fitted with a steel bracelet with a triple safety folding clasp and push-pieces.
