Longines times the legendary Hahnenkamm races in Kitzbühel
The Swiss watch brand Longines is proud to be the Official Timekeeper of the Hahnenkamm races in Kitzbühel, including the much-awaited Downhill race, claimed by Germany’s Thomas Dressen, followed by Beat Feuz (SUI) and Hannes Reichelt (AUT). For this speed event, the brand used its new timekeeping and data handling technology, the game-changing Longines Live Alpine Data system, consisting of a chip attached to the skier’s boot equipped with a radar and motion sensor. It enables the real-time and continuous measurement of the athlete’s speed, amongst other features.
As the Official Partner of the FIS, Longines was also proud to support the KitzCharity Trophy, a race which brings together professional skiers and well-known personalities to compete on a stretch of the fearful Streif. The funds generated by this event are donated to a local charity.
The Official Watch of the 2017/2018 FIS Alpine World Cup season is the Conquest V.H.P. Very High Precision, which 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.
