The Swiss skier is forever pushing back limits as seen through his 51 World Cup podium finishes. The winged-hourglass brand celebrates his victories with a series that reflects his style perfectly: high-precision, high-performance.


Worth isn’t measured in years. The saying fits Marco Odermatt like a glove. This 25-year-old champion already boasts an impressive track record with two Crystal Globes won in 2022 and 2023. The skier, who’s totally at home in downhill, Super-G and giant slalom, has also wiped a 23-year-old record clean off the boards by totaling the highest number of points ever in a single season. Longines pays tribute to its ambassador’s results via a limited edition cut out for feats. The Conquest Marco Odermatt watch is, as such, imagined around a 42 mm-diameter steel case, waterproof to depths of 100 meters. The sapphire-crystal caseback stands out with a stylized depiction of the famous trophy won and the wording “Marco Odermatt Edition, one of 2042”. This series is worn on a textile strap attached by a folding clasp. It comes complete with a NATO-type alternative.

On the sunburst blue dial, the small seconds and the chronograph counters reign supreme with their silver hue. This contrasted composition is encircled by a bezel featuring a ceramic insert adorned with a tachymetric scale, which sets off the model’s sporty personality even more. This reference, in keeping with the spirit of the 1954-launched collection, is driven by a high-performing caliber, L898.5. This selfwinding movement with silicon balance spring, insensitive to magnetic fields, delivers a power reserve of 59 hours. Just what you need to time your best downhill runs on your favorite slopes, anytime, anywhere!
