Official Partner and Timekeeper of the French Open at Roland-Garros since 2007, Swiss watchmaking company Longines presents 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.
