The Equestrian Lépine Pocket Watch by Longines

To celebrate the Year of the Horse, Swiss watchmaker Longines has released its Equestrian Lépine pocket watch. This new creation is also a testimony to the brand’s passion for equestrian sports. Consequently the back cover of this exquisite pocket watch features a horse flying over a jump.

The piece is fitted with a manually wound L506 caliber housed inside a rose gold 49.5 mm case. It shows the hours and minutes and also has a small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock. The white lacquered dial features 12 Arabic numerals painted black, with an additional 10 painted red. All of this adds up to a truly classy and stylish piece that bestows the owner with a certain air of distinction most wristwatches don’t provide.

The model that served as inspiration for this timepiece is an old metal Lépine pocket watch dating all the way back to 1927, which is now displayed at the Longines Museum in Saint-Imler.
