2016 Longines European Men’s and Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Championships
June 05, 2016
Besides, the Swiss watch brand would like to congratulate its Longines Ambassador of Elegance Giulia Steingruber who demonstrated once again great results after having gathered two gold medals in vault and floor.
These 2016 European championships were the perfect occasion to discover the Official Watch, which belongs to the Longines DolceVita collection, representing contemporary elegance of the Longines watchmaking brand worldwide. The timepiece is a lady model, cased in steel, decorated with diamonds and featuring a silver-coloured “flinqué” dial adorned with painted Roman numerals.
Longines first became involved in gymnastics in 1912, when it launched an innovative electro-mechanical timing system. For over twenty years the brand has been the official partner and timekeeper for artistic and rhythmic gymnastics competitions organised by the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG), of which the brand is also the Official Partner. At these events, as well as during the Longines European Men’s and Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Championships, Longines provides the necessary infrastructure and personnel for calculating times, presenting scores, processing data (start lists, results, medals) and displaying it on the results screens, on the commentators’ information system as well as transmitting it to the television companies that are covering the competitions.
