The Longines Gran Premio Latinoamericano was the occasion chosen by the Swiss watch brand to highlight the Longines Conquest V.H.P. “Very High Precision”. This timepiece represents a new achievement in the field of quartz, combining great precision, high technicality and a sporty look, marked by the brand’s unique elegance.

With the Conquest V.H.P., it is marking a return to a technology in which it was a pioneer and expert, particularly through its timekeeping activities.

The Longines Gran Premio Latinoamericano is an itinerant competition set up by the OSAF every year in a different country of Latin America. In addition of being its Title Partner, Longines is proud to be the Official Timekeeper and Official Watch of this event, the most important international Group 1 horse race of the subcontinent. Longines has always had at heart to extend its long lasting involvement in equestrian sports and, this year, it is very proud to have renewed its partnership with the OSAF. In 2019, the Longines Gran Premio Latinoamericano will take place in Santiago, Chile.
