In 1878, Longines launched a chronograph engraved with knights and horse riding horses, showing its love of equestrian ever since. This chronograph pocket watch has been used on racetracks since 1881. It is very popular with jockeys and horse lovers, because it can calculate horse racing time to the accuracy of seconds. As early as 1912, the brand has become a partner of the international obstacle course for the first time. To this day, Longines is actively participating in various equestrian sports, including field obstacle races, flat races, horse-drawn carriage competitions, dressages and triathlons.
