As a paragon of excellence in tennis performance, it was only natural that Andre Agassi be present with Longines to help officially launch the Conquest V.H.P. The intimate cocktail celebration began with a few words of welcome by Mr. Savoy and Mr. Capelli.
Guests then were presented with a movie about the Conquest V.H.P., one of the most accurate quartz wristwatches in the world. Mr. Capelli gave insights into its“very high precision” (V.H.P.) movement for an analogue watch (± 5 s/yr), and discussedits ability to reset its hands after an impact or exposure to a magnetic field using the GPD (gear position detection) system. Following the presentation, guests were also invited to explore the Conquest V.H.P. Collection firsthand.

It was fitting that Andre Agassi be present with Longines for the launch of the Conquest V.H.P. Collection, as 2017 marks his landmark tenth year as a Longines Ambassador of Elegance. His distinguished accomplishments as one of the all-time tennis greats, along with his unforgettable style, first led Longines to name Agassi an Ambassador of Elegance in 2007. In addition to his Olympic gold medal, Agassi is also the winner of four Grand Slam singles titles, and has also been the victor of the Davis Cup and the Masters Series. Since his retirement, Agassi devotes his time to his family and his charity work through The Andre Agassi Foundation (founded in 1994), whose mission is to assist the youth of Las Vegas and provide them with educational opportunities. He also opened up a public school in his home town in 2001 for at-risk children.
