In celebration of the longstanding partnership with the French Open, Longines unveils the Conquest 1/100th Roland Garros

Official Partner and Timekeeper of the French Open at Roland-Garros since 2007, the Swiss watchmaking company is proud to present a new chronograph keeping time to one hundredth of a second to add to its Conquest collection: the Conquest 1/100th Roland Garros. This special edition, created as a tribute to the greatest tennis tournament on clay courts, houses a unique movement using the latest-generation technologies.

Longines, timekeeper for sporting performances since 1878, is launching a new line of watches that have been specially created for sports which require high precision timing. The Conquest 1/100th series 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. All of this is possible thanks to the latest generation of quartz movement developed exclusively for Longines by ETA.

Official Partner and Timekeeper of the French Open at Roland-Garros since 2007, Longines is proud to support this internationally acclaimed event, which epitomizes the core values of the brand: tradition, performance and elegance. As a tribute to the strong relationship that it has developed with the Parisian tournament, the winged hourglass brand is launching an exclusive edition: the Conquest 1/100th Roland Garros. Touches of orange on the hands, the dial or the flange indexes subtly hint at the iconic clay of the French Open courts, while the case back is engraved with the logo of Roland Garros.

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. The model is also fitted with a steel bracelet and a butterfly clasp.
