As the Title Partner, Official Timekeeper and Official Watch of the Longines Masters, Swiss watchmaking brand Longines is delighted to present the parisian leg taking place from 29 November to 2 December 2018 at the Parc des Expositions in Paris-Nord Villepinte. Known for its elegance, the Longines Masters of Paris 2018 was presented during a press conference held today at the Lido of Paris in the presence of world-class riders.
During this unique event gathering the world’s best riders and horses for four days of breathtaking competition, Longines will have the pleasure to present two highlight events: the Longines Speed Challenge and the Longines Grand Prix. The first, taking place on Friday night, is recognized as the world’s fastest trial and will offer great suspense and intensity. The Longines Grand Prix, a show-jumping classic, will beautifully close the leg on Sunday. The Longines Masters of Paris will also be the occasion for the winged hourglass brand to support JustWorld International, through the “Longines Clear the Jump” activity realized during the Longines Grand Prix. On this occasion, 200 meals will be offered to some of the most vulnerable children in the world, each time the Longines jump is cleared. In addition, Longines is proud to be the Founding Partner of the Riders Masters Cup, an innovative show-jumping competition that pits the two major equestrian powers, the United States and Europe, against each other in a never before seen transatlantic battle.
Throughout the whole event, Longines will highlight the Conquest V.H.P. GMT Flash Setting as the Official Watch. Sporty and elegant, this watch is a must-have for travel lovers, as it allows them to easily change time zones either manually, following watchmaking tradition, or by using the smart “Flash Setting” system that sets the watch using flash pulses from a smartphone. This timepiece revolutionises both watchmaking precision and the user experience, expanding Longines’ Conquest V.H.P. “Very High Precision” family, following the three-handed and chronograph versions. This collection and many more will be showcased at the Longines Boutique located in the very heart of the Longines Masters of Paris arena, in the Village Prestige.
