Longines DolceVita x YVY: The New Riding-Inspired Timepiece

One to watch.

Longines and the equestrian world have been interlinked for years. A long-time supporter of dressage and show-jumping events, the brand is now trotting out a new riding-inspired timepiece, the DolceVita x YVY. Longines released the first DolceVita collection over 20 years ago, but this collaboration with Yvonne Reichmuth, founder of Swiss design studio YVY, pairs the traditional Longines rectangular timepiece with YVY’s double strap in leather, available in brown, beige, or black studded with rivets. “We wanted to develop a new approach together to the world of horses and their bridles,” Reichmuth explains. The double strap—watchband and accent bracelet—can be separated and changed as style suits.
