Longines and Alpine Skiing – Continuing a Sporting Tradition
The Swiss watch brand is once again ensuring precision in sports timing at the disposal of world-class skiing. As the official timekeeper for the World Cup Alpine skiing competitions organised by the International Skiing Federation (FIS) during the 2010-2011 season, Longines will be present on the slopes for a whole series of events to be held in Germany, Austria, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Finland, France, USA, Italy, Norway, the Czech Republic, Sweden, Switzerland and Slovenia. This year the brand will be launching its Conquest Chronograph, a timepiece that combines all the technical characteristics required by the most demanding sportsmen and women. During the season all eyes will be on Longines Ambassador of Elegance, Aksel Lund Svindal, the Norwegian whose performance in 2009-2010 was truly remarkable. Longines would like to take this opportunity to wish him every success in the coming events.
