   The history of Longines and equestrian sports can be traced back to 1869. At that time, Longines created a pocket watch engraved with horses, which opened a deep relationship with equestrian sports for 150 years. In 1878, Longines A chronograph was born with the rider and his mount engraved on the back. In 1881, this chronograph accurate to the second was widely used in timing of equestrian events and was favored by riders and equestrian lovers. Today, Longines has been widely involved in equestrian events such as obstacle course, flat horse race, endurance race, etc., and has served as the title partner, official timekeeper and designated watch.
