Longines timed the victory of the German riders at the Longines FEI European Eventing Championship 2015 in Blair Castle in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II
The Official Watch in Blair Castle was a stainless steel Longines Conquest Classic Moonphase watch. This model houses a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement, a true symbol of precision and technique. Its refined silvered dial displays the moon phases, echoing the excellence and elegance of the equestrian sport stars.
On the occasion of the 2015 Longines FEI European Eventing Championship, Longines set a new clock at the start of the cross country round. This clock displays the countdown until the start of each run, which is determined at a fixed time. The new device also beeps the last five seconds prompting the rider to start the run, which should not occur before the last beep.
Longines’ passion for equestrian sports dates back to 1878, when the brand produced a chronograph engraved with a jockey and his mount.
Along with eventing, Longines is an active partner in flat racing, show jumping and endurance. In these four disciplines, the Swiss watchmaker is the Official Partner, the Official Timekeeper and the Official Watch of international institutions, events, races and competitions. Elegance, Performance and Tradition are values that both equestrian sport and Longines share, which strengthen the close bounds that the brand has been developing with the equestrian world for more than a century.
