Longines Conquest Chronograph by Mikaela Shiffrin
Longines presents a new Conquest chronograph, personalised by its Ambassador of Elegance, skier Mikaela Shiffrin.
As the Official Timekeeper of the World Cup and Alpine World Ski Championships, Longines has long been a key player in competitive skiing, and since 2014, the brand includes Mikaela Shiffrin among its most talented Ambassadors of Elegance.
The American skier discovered the brand's know-how through its museum and production workshops during an April 2018 visit to its Saint-Imier headquarters in Switzerland. She took full advantage of the occasion to personalize her own watch from the Conquest collection, by bringing a touch of her own dynamic and elegant personality to the watch’s design. “When I visited Saint-Imier and discovered the complexity behind these watches, I was delighted to participate in the creation of my own watch,” said Mikaela during the watch’s October 2018 unveiling in Sölden for the opening of the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup. “I am proud to lend my name to a Longines timepiece. The Conquest Chronograph by Mikaela Shiffrin reflects my sporting character without compromising its feminine styling.”

The 36mm stainless steel case houses a blue aventurine dial that evokes the glitter of snow crystals, while the dashes of red on the timepiece recall the colours of the American flag and Mikaela's ski suit. It's the first time that Longines is offering a dial made of aventurine, a fine gemstone with colours that shift and come to life under variations in light. The caseback features a special engraving that shows the racing skier's silhouette, along with her signature.
The watch is powered by a quartz chronograph movement that displays the 30-minute counter at 10 o'clock, the small second at 6 o'clock and the date in a window at 4 o'clock.
To enhance the sporty and technical style, the Conquest Chronograph by Mikaela Shiffrin comes with a steel bracelet and a special case featuring the timepiece's main colours and the Ambassador of Elegance's own signature.
