The Swiss watch brand Longines is proud to present for the third consecutive year the photographic competition of La 25e heure Longines in Deauville. This event, which is held every year on the occasion of the changeover to winter time, invites participants to take a photograph of the town between midnight and one o'clock in the morning, in order to immortalise this unprecedented 25th hour of the day.
On this occasion, the brand with the winged hourglass is honoured to present its new Longines Spirit collection, which has been designed in the same vein as the precision instruments that accompanied famous pioneers in their conquest of the air, the seas and the land. Legendary aviators and explorers such as Amelia Earhart, Paul-Emile Victor, Elinor Smith and Howard Hughes have thus placed their trust in Longines during their travels. These new timepieces bear witness to this pioneering spirit, and pay a vibrant tribute to these exceptional men and women who, through a record, an exploit and a burst of courage, have marked history and are pushing new generations to surpass themselves. The models in the Longines Spirit collection are equipped with cutting-edge technology offering extremely precise movements, all of which are certified "chronometer".
