Straddling Up: Fall’s Equestrian Look
Known for the elegance of its timepieces, the Swiss watchmaker, Longines, is back again with another exquisite watch collection celebrating the tradition of horseback riding. The Longines Equestrian Collection was inspired by the rectangular buckle on the bridle of the only Swiss horse breed, the Franches-Montagnes. Available in four sizes, these new steel models are designed with quartz movement.
The black-lacquered, white mother-of-pearl and silver-coloured checkerboard pattern dials are all decorated with diamond indexes, while the silver-coloured flinqué dial is adorned with blue Roman numerals or the matte white dial with black Arabic numerals. These models are fitted with steel bracelets or leather straps. Accesorise with a pair of riding pants to get that Aishwarya Rai look next time you’re at a polo match or country club.
