8 Longines Equestrian Pocket Watch Limited Editions

8 Longines Equestrian Pocket Watch Limited Editions

Since the early 19th century, Longines has been a staunch supporter of the equestrian universe. It is, therefore, only natural for the brand to craft watches with exquisite engravings of horses, riders and jockeys. Show jumping and horse racing, the gripping narrative of these emblematic pieces is closely associated to that of the artwork on the cases of the pocket watches.

Some of them have been reinterpreted and are currently available in limited, numbered editions as part of the Longines Equestrian Pocket Watch collection. The exquisite 18-carat rose gold pieces attest to the close relationship between Longines and the equestrian world, reflecting the brand’s strong devotion to tradition, elegance and performance.
