    White Turf - 3rd Raceday - St-Moritz

    After three Sundays of breathtaking races, the Longines 79. Grosser Preis von St. Moritz saw the victory of Maxim Pecheur on Nimrod, followed by Dayverson De Barros on Berrahri and Rene Piechulek on Amun. With its CHF 111’111 prizemoney, this race was the highest endowed in Switzerland. For the 111st anniversary of the event, Longines was proud to be once again the Official Partner, Official Timekeeper and Official Watch.   After these three Sunday races, Longines honored Maxim Pecheur, the best jockey of the competition, with the “Longines Jockey Silver Trophy”.   Since 1907, the annual White Turf St. Moritz event takes place on the frozen lake of the Graubünden renowned tourist resort during three Sundays in February. Attracting more than 30,000 visitors yearly, it is considered as the sporting and social highlight in the Engadine winter calendar. This year, the event celebrated its 111st anniversary and took place on February 4, 11 and 18.   The Official Watch of the event is the Conquest V.H.P. (Very High Precision). This 41mm silvered timepiece displays a perpetual calendar and can rely on a very long battery life. With ± 5 sec. per year, this watch combines great precision, high technicality and a sporty look, marked by the brand’s unique elegance.   The links between the Swiss watch brand and St. Moritz date back over a century. Indeed, in 1894, Longines sent two timepieces fitted with a proprietary hand-wound movement to the famous town in the Engadin valley to serve as timekeeping devices. This marked the start of regular partnerships for timekeeping activities, particularly for alpine skiing, gymnastics and equestrian events.   In addition, Longines has become the Official Partner and Watch of St. Moritz. In the context of this partnership, the Tourist Office, the Swiss Ski School and the ski lifts of the glamorous alpine destination are featuring the colours of our brand. When it comes to equestrian sports, Longines’ passion for horses dates back to 1878, with the design of a chronograph featuring an engraved jockey and his mount. Seen on the racetracks as early as 1881 and extremely popular among jockeys and horse-lovers, this model enabled its user to time performances to the seconds. Today, Longines is still involved in equestrian events with horseracing, show jumping, eventing and endurance competitions. Elegance, performance and tradition are the values that both equestrian sports and Longines share and which strengthen the profound bounds that the brand has been developing with the equestrian world for more than a century.
