The Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping celebrates its fifth anniversary

This evening, Longines was delighted to have presented the press with the thrilling programme for the 2018 Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping, which will take place from 5 to 7 July 2018. This competition, the tenth leg of the Longines Global Champions Tour, will bring together the best international riders and horses onto the Champ de Mars, with the emblematic Eiffel Tower in the background. Once again, the Swiss watch brand is proud to lend its name to this great five-star show jumping event and provide its timekeeping expertise for all the trials. For this fifth edition, Longines is looking forward to inviting spectators to enjoy a timeless moment riding its Carousel located in the Grand Village, open to the public.

In addition, Longines is thrilled to present the weekend’s highlight trial, the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Paris. This competition allows the riders to earn points in the overall rankings of the Longines Global Champions Tour and thus obtain a golden ticket for the Longines Global Champions Tour Super Grand Prix, which will be held in December in Prague.

Longines will enjoy the presence of its Ambassador of Elegance, the stunning Indian actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who will be wearing the Official Watch for the event, a lady model from The Blue Edition of The Longines Master Collection. This steel timepiece displays a sunray blue dial adorned with diamond indexes, and comes with a matching blue alligator strap. This fashionable chromatic variation is perfectly in line with the classic and understated spirit of this collection.

The Elegance of the heart

This year for the first time, Longines is proud to be the Title Partner of the Longines Eiffel Challenge. This competition, held in presence of the Minister of Culture Françoise Nyssen, will be for the benefit of the “Mission Bern” which aims at restoring the French heritage related to the watchmaking and equestrian world. The French President Emmanuel Macron has entrusted this mission to the famous radio host and television presenter Stéphane Bern, known as a passionate about history.

The Swiss watchmaking brand takes pride in its long tradition of supporting charity causes. It was thus natural for Longines to also give support to JustWorld International – a charity organisation that collects funds to help impoverished children – through the “Longines Clear The Jump” action, which will take place during Saturday evening's highlight trial: The Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Paris. Each time a horse and rider clears a Longines obstacle with no faults, the winged hourglass brand will offer 200 meals to the association. True to its slogan “Elegance is an Attitude”, Longines will take this opportunity to salute the heartfelt elegance that JustWorld has demonstrated over the years.

Erik Lindbergh, Grandson of Famed Aviator Charles Lindbergh, Receives the First Longines Lindbergh Award

With its proud, historic ties to the world of aviation, Longines has chosen to celebrate Charles Lindbergh’s first solo, nonstop transatlantic flight, an event timed by the Swiss watchmaker in 1927, by creating the Longines Lindbergh Award. Erik Lindbergh, grandson to the celebrated American pilot who performed the inaugural voyage on May 21, 1927, became the first recipient of the Longines Lindbergh Award.

In May of 2002, during the 75th anniversary of the historic flight, a 37-year-old Erik Lindbergh walked in the footsteps of his illustrious grandfather and performed the same Atlantic crossing between Long Island, New York and Le Bourget, near Paris, aboard a small single-engine airplane. An artist and designer, Erik Lindbergh has been involved in a number of “crazy projects” in the field of space tourism and ecological airplanes. His story also tells of a struggle against adversity, having overcome severe health problems.

Longines chose to grant the Longines Lindbergh Award at the headquarter of the New York Times, the newspaper that so passionately told of the exploits of Charles Lindbergh, during a special evening held Monday, May 21, on the anniversary of Charles Lindbergh’s flight. During the event, which brought together representatives from the aviation sector, members of the media and the Lindbergh family, Longines Vice President and Head of International Marketing Juan-Carlos Capelli reminded us of the brand’s historic involvement in the field of aviation.

Mr. Capelli also awarded Erik Lindbergh with the Lindbergh Hour Angle Watch, a timepiece designed by his grandfather and developed by Longines shortly after the inaugural voyage, symbolizing the brand’s support for aeronautical pioneers and its close ties to Charles Lindbergh. Following his 1927 crossing, the adventurer approached Longines to create a watch that could respond to his aviation needs. Thus, the Lindbergh Hour Angle Watch was born and became the true watchmaking icon it is today.

The Longines Lindbergh Award, which comes with $25,000 in reference to the sum received by Charles Lindbergh on behalf of Raymond Orteig for becoming the first aviator to successfully cross the Atlantic, is awarded each year to a person of Charles Lindbergh’s pioneering character, in a spirit of elegance and performance dear to the Swiss watchmaker. The award’s laureate is chosen by a jury that includes Juan-Carlos Capelli, Vice President of Longines and Head of International Marketing, Stéphanie Lachat, Doctor of History, Bernard Decré, President of the “A la recherche de l’oiseau blanc” association, and Spiros Bouas, pilot, co-founder and advisor for the “Spirit of St-Louis 2” project.
