Longines unveils the new Conquest V.H.P. advertising campaign

On Thursday 15 February 2018, Japanese artistic gymnast and Longines Ambassador of Elegance Kohei Uchimura joined the Swiss watchmaking brand in its elegant Boutique in the district of Ginza in Tokyo for the launch of his new Conquest V.H.P. advertising campaign. On this occasion, Kohei Uchimura proudly signed the new campaign visual and was given the opportunity to discover the numerous brand’s collections on display in the boutique with Juan-Carlos Capelli, Longines Vice President and Head of International Marketing. Kohei also expressed how “hugely honored I am to be part of the Longines family, and I believe that the values close to my heart perfectly match with those dear to Longines.”

Considered by many as the best gymnast of all time – a discipline in which Longines has been involved since 1912 – Kohei Uchimura is perfectly in line with Longines’ motto “Elegance is an Attitude”, it was therefore natural for the winged hourglass brand to welcome him in the Longines Family of Ambassadors of Elegance.

On the same day, the Conquest V.H.P. was presented to a selected group of invited media at the Temporary Contemporary Gallery in Tsukishima, Tokyo. This model represents a new achievement in the field of quartz, combining great precision, high technicality and a sporty look, marked by the brand’s unique elegance.

The Longines Masters of Hong Kong 2018

From February 9-11, 2018, the vibrant city of Hong Kong welcomed the Asian leg of the Longines Masters series. Gathering some of the world’s best riders and horses for the delight of the numerous spectators in attendance, this three-day event perfectly combined remarkable sports performance with spectacular entertainment.  
 

Today was marked by the victory of French rider Patrice Delaveau on Aquila HDC in the Longines Grand Prix, ahead of Max Kühner on Cielito Lindo 2 and Daniel Deusser on Cornet d’Amour. In recognition for his/her great achievement, Patrice Delaveau was presented with an elegant Longines watch from the hands of Mr. Juan-Carlos Capelli, Longines Vice President and Head of International Marketing and Mrs Karen Au Yeung. On Saturday, all eyes were on the contestants of the Longines Speed Challenge, known as the world’s fastest trial. The challenge for the competitors of this event is to achieve the fastest time, knowing that a fault only leads to a two-second penalty, instead of the usual four. This rule pushes the riders to give their best and to run the course as fast as they can, creating a high-level of suspense.
 

Over the weekend, Longines has highlighted the Official Watch of the event, a lady model from the Record collection, featuring a white mother-of-pearl dial and diamond indexes. The Record collection combines classic elegance and excellence, aspiring to become the spearheads of the brand. Each piece in this line houses a movement including a single-crystal silicon balance spring with unique properties and is certified as a “chronometer” by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).
 

As the Title Partner of the Longines Masters, Longines is looking forward to the final stage of the 2017/2018 series, taking place for the first time in New York, from 26-29 April 2018.

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.
