In Monte Carlo, the winners of the Longines Pro-Am Cup this year were Mark McAuley riding Loriot and Maddalena Valenzano Menada on Quidana. Richard Spooner on Cristallo prevailed at the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of the Prince of Monaco.

With the victorious performances of Mark McAuley riding Loriot and of Maddalena Valenzano Menada on Quidana at the Longines Pro-Am Cup on Friday and of Richard Spooner on Cristallo Saturday at the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of the Prince of Monaco, the event experienced memorably intense moments.

From June 27 to 29, the Principality of Monaco witnessed the sixth leg of the Longines Global Champions Tour, a highly regarded show jumping competition. Title Partner and Official Timekeeper of the Longines Global Champions Tour, the Swiss-based Longines watchmaking company was also on hand in Monaco over the weekend for an event combining equestrian sport and elegance.

Longines presented two of the major events of the Monaco leg: the Longines Pro-Am Cup on Friday, won by Mark McAuley riding Loriot and by Maddalena Valenzano Menada on Quidana, and the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of the Prince of Monaco on Saturday, the latter won by Richard Spooner on Cristallo followed by the riders William Funnell and Edwina Tops-Alexander. Visibly elated, the winners of these outstanding competitions were each presented with a Longines wristwatch as they improved their rankings in the Longines Global Champions Tour Ranking.

True to the brand’s values of elegance, tradition and performance, this new collection of models, fitted with self-winding calibres, is both contemporary and perfectly timeless.
