The Longines Masters of Paris – A series launch marked by all the elegance of French style
As Title Partner and Official Timekeeper of the Longines Masters Series, Swiss watchmaking brand Longines is proud to provide its timekeeping expertise for all the competitions of this world-class show-jumping competition. The first leg takes place from 30 November to 3 December 2017 at the Parc des Expositions in Paris Nord Villepinte. The season then continues with the Hong Kong leg from 9 to 11 February 2018, followed – for the first time in its history – by a climactic final leg in New York from 26 to 19 April 2018.
During the Longines Masters of Paris, Longines is delighted to lend its name to two of the weekend’s headlining events, the Longines Speed Challenge on the Friday evening – with Longines Ambassador of Elegance, Asian actress Chi Ling Lin attending – and the Longines Grand Prix on Sunday afternoon. In addition, the winged hourglass brand is also for the first time 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.
Longines’ elegant boutique will open its doors in the heart of the Prestige Village during the Parisian leg. Accessible to all visitors, it also serves as the entrance for the VIPs making their way to the Masters Club. It offers the chance to discover and purchase the brand’s various collections, such as the Official Watch of this event, the new Conquest V.H.P. (Very High Precision). This model represents new achievement in the field of quartz, combining great precision, high technicality and a sporty look, marked by the brand’s unique elegance.
In addition to all the sporting excitement, spectators can enjoy a nostalgic moment on the Longines Carousel in the heart of the Prestige Village. Visitors of all ages can have their photo taken and retrieve the picture at the Longines boutique.
