Longines was delighted to be back in the Longines Global Champions Tour of Monaco, which gathered this weekend the world’s finest riders and horses in the mind-blowing setting of the Port d’Hercule. As the Title Partner and Official Timekeeper of the series, the Swiss watch brand is proud to have timed the victory of Maikel van der Vleuten on Beauville Z in one of the weekend’s highlight trials, the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix du Prince de Monaco. Longines Vice President Sales, Mr. Charles Villoz, presented the Dutch rider with an elegant Longines timepiece as a reward for his performance. This victory handed him the tenth golden ticket to the Longines Global Champions Tour Super Grand Prix, where he will line up against the winners of the previous legs.
On Friday evening, Inigo Lopez de la Osa Franco and Laura Kraut earned first place at the Longines Pro-Am Cup, supported by Charlotte Casiraghi as the Patron of this competition. This trial allows an amateur and professional rider to compete together for the coveted title, with a focus on speed and agility. Longines participated in this competition with a team made up of Longines Ambassador of Elegance Jane Richard Philips and Julia Tops, Jan Tops’ daughter.
The spectators present at this equestrian event had the opportunity to discover the Official Watch, a model from the iconic HydroConquest collection. This line combines classic elegance and watchmaking excellence, both distinguishing hallmarks of the winged hourglass brand. Drawing inspiration from the fascinating world of water sports, the pieces from this collection display a bezel enhanced by a ceramic coloured insert, which matches the colour of the dial and brings them a modernized design and sporty silhouette.
