White Turf - 3rd Raceday - St-Moritz

Après trois dimanches de courses inoubliables, le Longines 79. Grosser Preis von St. Moritz a vu la victoire de Maxim Pecheur sur Nimrod, suivi de Dayverson De Barros sur Berrahri et de Rene Piechulek sur Amun. Avec un gain global de CHF 111'111, cette course est la plus dotée de Suisse. Pour le 111ème  anniversaire de cet évènement, Longines était fière d'être à nouveau Partenaire Officiel, Chronométreur Officiel et Montre Officielle.

 

Au terme de ces trois dimanches de courses, Longines a remis le « Longines Jockey Silver Trophy » récompensant le meilleur jockey de la compétition à Maxim Pecheur.

 

Depuis 1907, la White Turf St. Moritz a lieu chaque année durant trois dimanches de février sur le lac gelé de la célèbre station touristique des Grisons. Attirant plus de 30 000 visiteurs, elle est considérée comme le point d’orgue sportif et social du calendrier hivernal de l'Engadine. Cette année, l'événement célébrait son 111ème anniversaire et avait lieu les 4,11 et 18 février.

 

La Montre Officielle de l’événement est un modèle Conquest V.H.P. (Very High Precision). Cette montre de 41 mm au cadran argenté dispose d’une très longue autonomie de la pile et d’un calendrier perpétuel. Avec ± 5 sec. /an, ce modèle allie extrême précision, haute technicité et look sportif à l'élégance unique de la marque.

 

Les relations entre la marque horlogère suisse et le village de l’Engadine remontent à plus d’un siècle. En effet, en 1894, Longines envoie à Saint-Moritz deux pièces, équipées d’un mouvement Longines à remontage manuel, qui serviront de dispositif de chronométrage. C’est le début de partenariats réguliers pour des activités de chronométrage, et ceci, dans diverses disciplines sportives, dont le ski alpin, la gymnastique et les sports équestres.

 

En outre, Longines est Partenaire et Montre Officielle de la station de Saint-Moritz, dont l’Office du Tourisme, l’Ecole suisse de ski et les remontées mécaniques arborent les couleurs de la marque au sablier ailé.

 

La passion de la marque horlogère pour les sports équestres remonte à 1878 avec la création d’un chronographe gravé d’un jockey et de sa monture. Ce modèle extrêmement populaire parmi les jockeys et les passionnés de chevaux existait déjà en 1881 sur les pistes de course et permettait de chronométrer à la seconde près.

 

Aujourd’hui, l’engagement de Longines dans les sports équestres inclut la course de plat, le saut d’obstacles, l’endurance et le concours complet. L’élégance, la performance et la tradition sont des valeurs que la marque horlogère partage avec ces disciplines, renforçant les liens profonds qu’elle a tissés avec ce sport depuis plus d’un siècle.

Longines unveils the new Conquest V.H.P. advertising campaign

On Thursday 15 February 2018, Japanese artistic gymnast and Longines Ambassador of Elegance Kohei Uchimura joined the Swiss watchmaking brand in its elegant Boutique in the district of Ginza in Tokyo for the launch of his new Conquest V.H.P. advertising campaign. On this occasion, Kohei Uchimura proudly signed the new campaign visual and was given the opportunity to discover the numerous brand’s collections on display in the boutique with Juan-Carlos Capelli, Longines Vice President and Head of International Marketing. Kohei also expressed how “hugely honored I am to be part of the Longines family, and I believe that the values close to my heart perfectly match with those dear to Longines.”

Considered by many as the best gymnast of all time – a discipline in which Longines has been involved since 1912 – Kohei Uchimura is perfectly in line with Longines’ motto “Elegance is an Attitude”, it was therefore natural for the winged hourglass brand to welcome him in the Longines Family of Ambassadors of Elegance.

On the same day, the Conquest V.H.P. was presented to a selected group of invited media at the Temporary Contemporary Gallery in Tsukishima, Tokyo. This model 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.

The Longines Masters of Hong Kong 2018

From February 9-11, 2018, the vibrant city of Hong Kong welcomed the Asian leg of the Longines Masters series. Gathering some of the world’s best riders and horses for the delight of the numerous spectators in attendance, this three-day event perfectly combined remarkable sports performance with spectacular entertainment.  

Today was marked by the victory of French rider Patrice Delaveau on Aquila HDC in the Longines Grand Prix, ahead of Max Kühner on Cielito Lindo 2 and Daniel Deusser on Cornet d’Amour. In recognition for his/her great achievement, Patrice Delaveau was presented with an elegant Longines watch from the hands of Mr. Juan-Carlos Capelli, Longines Vice President and Head of International Marketing and Mrs Karen Au Yeung. On Saturday, all eyes were on the contestants of the Longines Speed Challenge, known as the world’s fastest trial. The challenge for the competitors of this event is to achieve the fastest time, knowing that a fault only leads to a two-second penalty, instead of the usual four. This rule pushes the riders to give their best and to run the course as fast as they can, creating a high-level of suspense.

Over the weekend, Longines has highlighted the Official Watch of the event, a lady model from the Record collection, featuring a white mother-of-pearl dial and diamond indexes. The Record collection combines classic elegance and excellence, aspiring to become the spearheads of the brand. Each piece in this line houses a movement including a single-crystal silicon balance spring with unique properties and is certified as a “chronometer” by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).

As the Title Partner of the Longines Masters, Longines is looking forward to the final stage of the 2017/2018 series, taking place for the first time in New York, from 26-29 April 2018.
