Gregory Wathelet and Nevados S victorious in the Global Champions Grand Prix of Valkenswaard 2020
As the Official Partner and Official Timekeeper of the Tops International Arena, Longines was proud to time the victory of Gregory Wathelet on his super-charged grey stallion Nevados S in this weekend’s highlight competition, the GC Grand Prix of Valkenswaard. The brand was also delighted to grant the winner with an elegant timepiece to celebrate his great performance.
This weekend of intense competition was the perfect occasion for Longines to present the Official Watch of the event, a model from the new Longines Spirit collection. This collection is designed in the same manner as the timepieces of the famous pioneers as they conquered the air, land and sea relying on their Longines time instruments. Legendary aviators and explorers like Amelia Earhart, Paul-Emile Victor, Elinor Smith and Howard Hughes put their trust in the winged hourglass brand on their incredible journeys. Today, Longines presents new timepieces that are a testimony to their pioneering spirit. A glowing tribute to these exceptional men and women who, by a record, an accomplishment or a display of courage, have left their mark on history - encouraging new generations to push the boundaries. All models from the Longines Spirit collection come with state-of-the-art technology, resulting in highly accurate movements that are all Chronometer-certified.
