Longines, Official Partner and Timekeeper of the 2016 French Open
May 12, 2016
From 22 May until 5 June 2016, you will be able to follow the performances of the greatest tennis players in the world for a fortnight. As an Official Partner and Timekeeper of the French Open, Longines is proud to support this internationally famous event which is the perfect illustration of the key values of the brand: tradition, performance and elegance.
In 2015, the Conquest 1/100th Roland Garros watch for men was released. This year, Longines pays tribute to tennis and women in general, creating the Conquest Roland Garros Ladies watch. This jewel of elegance and precision will meet the need of both athletes and sports fans all over the world. Created as an homage to this great tennis rendezvous on clay, the Conquest Roland Garros for Ladies sparked off a great enthusiasm from Stefanie Graf, seven-time winner of the French Open and Longines ambassador of Elegance.
This year, Longines confirms once more its involvement in the world of tennis as well as its future thanks to the Longines Future Tennis Aces tournament. At the foot of the Eiffel Tower, up-and-coming tennis players from all over the world will compete in a tournament worthy of the greatest players. You will be able to follow the performances of these future tennis stars in their first international tournament on the Longines website. Last year, the young Chinese tennis player Xiaofei Wang had vainquished his opponent, Jack Pinnington-Jones (United-Kingdom), in the finals to win the tournament.
