The Longines Speed Challenge once again presented a wonderful scene, and the event was finally won by Daniel Deusser. The German jockey raced ‘Happiness van T Paradijs’ to finish the race as fast as possible, while Pius Schwizer of ‘Leonard de la Ferme CH’ and Bertram Allen of ‘Quiet Easy’ took second and third place respectively. Riders in the Speed Challenge must cross the line at the fastest speed to win, and a penalty of two seconds for each pole position knocked down instead of the usual four seconds. In this way, the jockey can show his best, complete the race as fast as possible, and create a more intense and exciting atmosphere. The Longines Speed Challenge emphasizes timing and precision, both of which are core values of Longines.
The Longines Hong Kong Equestrian Masters is the third leg of the entire series. The series began in Los Angeles in October and will continue in Paris in December. Longines has an endless love for equestrian sports, and this time I am honored to be the title partner and official timekeeper of this intercontinental equestrian obstacle course. The Swiss watch brand Longines also presents the Longines Hong Kong Masters Equestrian Designated Watch-a new model from the Longines Equestrian watch. This collection pays tribute to the brand’s deep connection with the equestrian world.
Exhibitions that trace the history of Longines
Longines watches the Longines Flagship 1957-2017 (Longines Flagship 1957-2017) exhibition, so that the public watching the Longines Hong Kong Equestrian Masters can look back on the brand’s long history. Swiss watch brand Longines celebrates the 60th anniversary of this classic collection. For the first time, the classic military flag watch collection, which is usually collected in the Longines Museum, was also exhibited. Visitors can view excerpts of this series through interactive digital systems, including technical sketches and old advertising videos, which are the history that established the brand’s rich tradition.
