Dress for the occasion in elegant blue timepieces from the Official Timekeeper and Official Partner of the Hampton Classic, Swiss watchmaker Longines. Whether you choose a sporty look with The Official Watch of the Hampton Classic, the Conquest V.H.P. “Very High Precision,” or contemporary elegance with a model from the popular Master Collection, a Longines watch makes the perfect accessory for The Hampton Classic Horse Show.
Well into its third decade, the Hampton Classic Horse Show has become equally renowned as an institution of the New York social calendar, attended by high-profile celebrities and socialites who sip, stroll, shop, and spectate at one of the biggest highlights of the Hamptons social season.
Sport Style with the Official Watch of the Hampton Classic, the Conquest V.H.P.
Ever since Longines introduced a pocket watch engraved with a jockey and his mount in 1878, the heritage brand has been inseparably tied to the world of sports timekeeping and especially, the equestrian world. The brand carries on that spirit of precision and style with the Official Watch of the Hampton Classic, and one of the most accurate quartz watches in the world: The Conquest V.H.P.
This “Very High Precision” watch combines great precision, high technicality, and a sporty look, marked by the brand’s unique elegance. Featuring a sunray blue dial, this timepiece houses an exclusive movement that represents a new achievement in the field of quartz, renowned for its high degree of precision for an analog watch (± 5 seconds/year) and its ability to reset its hands after an impact or exposure to a magnetic field. This exceptional movement also offers a very long battery life and a perpetual calendar. With its precise technicality and sporty good looks, the Conquest V.H.P. is the perfect accessory to wear for a day at The Hampton Classic.
Graceful Elegance: The Longines Master Collection Blue Edition
The Longines Master Collection has easily become one of Longines’ most popular watch styles thanks to its classical elegance and versatility. The Longines Master Collection watch models complement dress or casual attire with an understated sunray blue dial, stainless-steel case, and choice of coordinated blue alligator strap or stainless-steel bracelet. The transparent case back of the Master Collection models allows their wearers to admire the movement of their automatic calibers.
A range of stainless-steel case sizes complement any wrist and add to this Collection’s appeal. Made to last with style to spare, a Longines blue dial timepiece from the Master Collection is the perfect accessory to sport for the Hampton Classic.
