The Longines Equestrian Pocket Watch Jockey 1878 Mechanical Hand-wound

The Longines Equestrian Pocket Watch Jockey 1878 Mechanical Hand-wound Watch




Elegance, tradition and performance are at home in the pocket thanks to this L├ępine watch, a reminder of the bond that has united Longines and equestrian sports since the late nineteenth century. This replica of a model fitted with Longines' first ever chronograph, produced in 1878, will delight modern-day dandies, collectors, and horse-racing enthusiasts with its classic exterior and mechanical heart.
Opening the pink gold cover, which is engraved with a jockey and his mount, reveals in all its splendour the hand-wound movement complete with column-wheel chronograph mechanism. It is operated by a single pusher on the winding crown, allowing the large, central chronograph hand to sweep the elegant white lacquered dial. This remarkable pocket watch is testimony to Longines' rich history, and is presented as a limited edition of 20 pieces.
