LONGINES EVENTS & SPORTS
Longines’ long-lasting involvement in sports started in 1878 with the first chronograph manufactured by Longines, the legendary 20H movement. Longines gradually built a special relationship with the world of sport. It can rely on many years of experience as a timekeeper for world championships in sport or as a partner of international sports federations. Today, the brand is present in various sports, which must always live up to its criteria of elegance.
Longines’ passion for equestrian sport dates back to 1878, when it produced a chronograph engraved with a jockey and his mount. Three years later, it can be found on American racecourses, adopted by horse enthusiasts. In 1912, the company partnered for the first time with an international show jumping competition. Today Longines’ involvement in equestrian sports includes show-jumping, flat racing, endurance, driving, dressage and eventing competitions.
