Longines Ambassador of Elegance Stefanie Graf opens the doors of her foundation in Hamburg

On February 27, 2019, Stefanie Graf and her foundation, Children for Tomorrow, were pleased to welcome Swiss watch brand Longines in Hamburg (GER). Initiated by the German tennis legend in 1998, the institute - located at the University clinic of Hamburg Eppendorf - assists children and families who have been victims of war, persecution and violence.

Stefanie Graf says: “Longines has been so generous and supportive to what is dear to my heart, my foundation Children for Tomorrow. For over 20 years we have specialized in treatment with our trauma therapy providing care to as many children as possible who have suffered through war, exile and violence.  These inner wounds are so often overlooked. Raising awareness for what these children have to endure and what is needed to heal them is the mission of Children for Tomorrow.  We want to give as many children as possible a new perspective for a healthy future.”

The non-profit organization brings light to the sensitive issue of refugees and their psychological well-being. A qualified team of specialists helps the children and teenagers to overcome their traumas with different psychological treatments and activities, such as art therapy. This Wednesday, a watchmaker from Longines was present at the foundation to initiate the children to his craftsmanship.

This event also gave the opportunity for Stefanie Graf and Longines to reaffirm their long lasting partnership, initiated in 2008 and celebrated last summer through the auction sale of 10 limited “Conquest V.H.P. Stefanie Graf & Andre Agassi Foundations” watch sets. All proceeds were donated to Children for Tomorrow and The Andre Agassi Foundation for Education, two charities founded by the two Ambassadors of Elegance.


Elegance of the heart

Longines’ fundamental values of excellence and elegance have always led it to pursue and promote the highest social ideals. In this regard, the winged hourglass brand has forged various partnerships over the years to channel its support for different charitable organizations.

Walter von Känel, President of Longines says: “Longines’ core values have always led the brand to serve philanthropic purposes. We are particularly proud and honoured to work alongside the Children for Tomorrow Foundation, helping children and their families to build a better future. The altruism, dedication and generosity shown by its founder, Longines Ambassador of Elegance Stefanie Graf, are a source of inspiration and a perfect illustration of the true elegance – the elegance of a generous heart – so dear to our brand.” Stefanie Graf adds: “I am extremely grateful to represent a company like Longines, rich in history, tradition, quality and craftsmanship.  We share a commitment to making a difference in other people’s lives. Giving and caring is a big part of who they are.”


About Children for Tomorrow

Children for Tomorrow is a non-profit foundation with the goal of supporting and initiating projects that provide assistance to children and families who have become victims of war, persecution and violence. These children have withstood terrifying experiences, some having lost their parents and close relatives. As a result of their psychological traumas, some have suffered from or still have sleep disorders, nightmares, depression or other symptoms. In order to overcome these traumas, psychotherapeutic therapy conducted by trained and qualified personnel is required. The financial resources from the Children for Tomorrow foundation serve to heal the psychological wounds within. For more information, visit www.children-for-tomorrow.com/

Longines dives into the HydroConquest universe during a special event in Singapore attended by Aaron Kwok

Drawing its inspiration from the fascinating world of water sports, the HydroConquest collection combines technical excellence and traditional elegance, both distinguishing hallmarks of Longines. The Swiss watch brand chose the rooftop of The Fullerton Bay Hotel in Singapore, with its breathtaking views of the sea and the famous Marina Bay Sands Hotel, to present the emblematic sports line’s new models, which preserve the traditional style of diving watches.

 

A coloured ceramic insert has been added to the bezel of the new HydroConquest models. This highly technical and scratch-resistant material enhances the sporty, modern character of the watches. The HydroConquest collection is inspired by the unique requirements of scuba diving and features water-resistance to 300 metres, a unidirectional rotating bezel, a screw-down crown and case back, crown protection and a double security folding clasp with integrated diving extension.

 

 “The demand for sports watches, and especially for diving style watches, has increased significantly these past few years,” explains Walter von Känel, President of Longines. “We are delighted to introduce our new HydroConquest models with ceramic, as these watches will appeal to dynamic individuals looking for distinctive, contemporary timepieces.”

 

After making an appearance at the opening of the new Longines Boutique in Marina Bay Sands, Longines Ambassador of Elegance Aaron Kwok attended the HydroConquest event. The multi-talented artist shared his opinion of the new HydroConquest models. “As a watch lover, I really appreciate the bezel’s ceramic insert. These watches have a sporty silhouette and an elegant style, making them suitable for daily wear and appropriate for all occasions. The new HydroConquest models’ fresh look complements all attire”

 

Besides the current collection with an aluminum insert on the bezel, the new HydroConquest models’ ceramic insert is available in several colors to adorn the wrists of all water sports enthusiasts. These models come in blue, black or grey, with a dial that matches the bezel’s ceramic insert and rubber strap, while the metal version combines polished and brushed steel for a truly impressive finish. Available in two sizes (41 mm and 43 mm), these HydroConquest timepieces offer the choice of three hands and a calendar or a chronograph.
