The highlight of the event was showcasing the original trophy of Men's Single and Women's Single at the Longines boutique in Connaught Place Delhi.

Ace tennis player Yuki Bhambri who will be representing India at Roland Garros this year paid a special visit to Longines Boutique to witness this special display. He was presented with a Conquest 1/100th Roland Garros timepiece on this occasion.

"I am extremely excited to witness this trophy up close and personal. Longines has a close relationship with Roland Garros and the Conquest 1/100th Roland Garros model is a fitting tribute to this. It is a beautiful timepiece which in my mind is a great representation of sporting elegance," said Yuki.

Official partner and timekeeper of the French Open at Roland-Garros since 2007, Longines is proud to support this internationally acclaimed event, which epitomizes the core values of the brand: tradition, performance and elegance. As a tribute to the strong relationship that it has developed with the Parisian tournament, the winged hourglass brand decided to launch an exclusive edition: the Conquest 1/100th Roland Garros. Touches of orange on the hands, the dial or the flange indexes subtly hint at the iconic clay of the French Open courts, while the case back is engraved with the logo of Roland Garros.

NB: The Official Watch of Roland Garros 2018 is a Conquest V.H.P. "Very High Precision" model, which 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.(NewsVoir)
