The Longines China Tour of Beijing Great Wall marked by the victory of Vincent Vermeulen in the Longines Grand Prix
This weekend was marked by the first leg of the Longines China Tour, which took place for the very first time in an exceptional venue: the Great Wall in Beijing.
Dutch rider Vincent Vermeulen riding Ceylon claimed the victory in the Longines Grand Prix, finishing ahead of Kenneth Cheng on Chaccopia and Jirigala Erdeng on Brikibo vd Bosbeek. In recognition for his exceptional performance, Vermeulen was presented with an elegant timepiece from the hands of Juan-Carlos Capelli, Longines Vice president and Head of International Marketing.
In line with its motto “Elegance is an Attitude”, the Swiss watch brand was also proud to welcome three Chinese celebrities to the event, namely Xiong Zi Qi, Wu Xin, and Xing Zhao Lin.
During the Longines China Tour of Beijing Great Wall, the brand highlighted a ladies model from the Record collection, combining elegance and excellence. Displaying a mother-of-pearl dial and diamond indexes, this timepiece is chronometer-certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), a designation awarded to all of the pieces in the Record collection.

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.Discover the Blue Horse
