World-class sport, emotions and refinement at the Longines Masters of Los Angeles

The Longines Masters of Los Angeles reached its climax on Sunday afternoon with the Longines Grand Prix won by Daniel Deusser on Equita van’t Zorgvliet. The German rider received a Longines watch from the hands of Charles Villoz, Vice President of the winged hourglass brand, to honour his amazing performance.
Earlier in the weekend Longines took part in the Pro-Am for Charity, a competition, which is run by pairs of riders, one from among the world's best professional riders and an “amateur”. Longines Ambassador of Elegance Jane Richard Philips and Destry Spielberg competed for the charity organization JustWorld International.
On Friday evening, Longines had the pleasure to welcome its Ambassador of Elegance Mikaela Shiffrin at the event. The talented alpine skier was present to encourage the riders during the Longines Speed Challenge. This trial, known as the fastest in the world, was won by Nayel Nassar on Lordan.
Longines is delighted to lend its name to this 5* show-jumping event and provide its timekeeping expertise to all its trials. The Swiss watch brand is also proud to have presented the Official Watch of the event, a model of the Longines DolceVita collection. Set with diamonds, this timepiece displays a silver-coloured “flinqué” dial adorned with painted Roman numerals and a rose gold hourglass. It is mounted on a steel and rose gold cap bracelet.
