Elegance and performance to be celebrated at the 46th Artistic Gymnastics World Championships
The Official Watch in Glasgow was a model of the new Longines DolceVita collection, which represents contemporary elegance of the Longines watchmaking brand worldwide. The lady watch, cased in steel, is decorated with diamonds and featuring a silver-coloured “flinqué” dial adorned with painted Roman numerals.
Longines first became involved in gymnastics in 1912, when it launched an innovative electro-mechanical timing system. For over twenty years the brand has been the official partner and timekeeper for artistic and rhythmic gymnastics competitions organised by the International Gymnastics Federation. At these events, Longines provides the necessary infrastructure and personnel for calculating times, presenting scores, processing data (start lists, results, medals) and displaying it on the results screens, on the commentators’ information system as well as transmitting it to the television companies that are covering the competitions.
