Longines has released Conquest Jumping, an elegant analogue wristwatch dedicated specifically to the discipline of Jumping.
The specific and varied requirements for timing this discipline have led to the development of the new cutting-edge L441 movement, which has technical capabilities that enables the timing of a Jumping round to be recorded to 1/100th of a second.
The watch also has the capability to convert penalties into time or add time penalties for exceeding the time allowed, depending on whether the competition is run under Table A or C.
With its ability to combine timing with penalty points, this chronograph is the first of its kind in the world will allow trainers, judges and fans to precisely measure each rider’s performance using an elegant analogue wristwatch, while taking into account in real time the many FEI regulations that apply to Jumping competitions.
Boasting a circular steel case with a diameter of 41 mm, the back of the watch is engraved with a design representing a horse jumping an obstacle. Protected by a sapphire glass, the dial is available in black or silver.
The timepiece displays the hours and minutes with a centre-sweep seconds plus the date and has a small seconds dial at 6 o’clock. The red, centrally mounted hand shows the hundredths of a second on the flange. A counter at 10 o’clock displays the faults and penalty points, while the counter at 2 o’clock shows the two possible Tables (A or C) as well as the seconds timed.
A 45-second scale enables the user to follow the countdown after the bell has been rung for each competitor to start their round. The watch is fitted on a steel bracelet with a folding safety clasp.
