Longines has been fully involved in equestrian sports for nearly a century. The brand has long supported the elegant equestrian sports and has a close and solid relationship with equestrianism. Longines loves equestrianism. Equestrian chooses Longines because it requires the extraordinary abilities of concentration, precision and experience. It is because the sport conveys a noble and unique style and elegance. These qualities are precisely consistent with Longines watchmaking tradition and watchmaking.

The equestrian competition is generally the first equestrian training, then the horse speed and endurance test, and finally the obstacle course, which is also the biggest highlight of the equestrian competition. The ‘Longines Hong Kong Equestrian Masters’ watch house was invited to visit this competition and feel the charm of sports and speed. Obstacle races are mainly to test the proficiency of teamwork and horses and the ability to quickly pass through multiple obstacles according to a fixed route. The horse’s jumping ability, the choice of take-off timing and the rider’s control of the race rhythm are particularly critical in the race.
