With the Longines World Champion Tour commencing, it’s time to reexamine the timepiece on your wrist.
The Longines World Champion Tour is under way, and it’s making its rounds to 17 cities across 3 continents – Paris, Hamburg, Monaco, Miami Beach and more. Hosting the most prestigious athletes from Olympic competitors to world and continental champions, the 13th season of Longines World Champion Tour brings together the top 30 riders in show jumping disciplines. Offering not only one of the largest prizes of any equestrian competition in the world, the LWCT features some of the most luxe VIP viewing experiences, complete with gourmet foods, multilingual hosts and expert hospitality teams.
The richness of the World Champions Tour only adds to the exceptional reputation of Longines as the first-in-class watchmaker in the world. Longines timepieces are famed for their supreme reliability; since the 1920s, they have received the most awards and recognitions than any other watchmaker. Founded by Auguste Agassiz in 1832, Longines has 186 years of excellence. The Longines winged hourglass logo, registered in 1889, remains the oldest, unchanged trademark still in use. Today, Longines the official timekeeper for a number of international sports championships, including the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities.
The craftsmanship, elegance, style and – most importantly – its reputation for superb timekeeping accuracy is what makes Longines the most reliable and luxurious watch on the market.
