From January 9th to 12th, 2014, Longines became the first official race of the CSI Basel International Jockey Club and the first official competition watch, and Rolf-Gran Bengtsson discounted in the race Gui, successfully won the championship.
In recent years, the CSI Basel Jockey Club has become a world-renowned indoor horse racing sport. Longines, a Swiss watch brand, has always been a supporter of the yardage sport. This elegant sport perfectly presents the Longines value. The CSI Basel Jockey Club watch has a diameter of 41MM, uses an exclusive vertical escapement structure, and a black dial.
At the Longines International Grand Prix, which ended last weekend, Rolf-Gran Bengtsson won the second round, so he received a Longines watch personally issued by Longines President Walter von kanel.
Longines has a long history of passion and contribution to equestrian sports. Its enthusiasm for equestrian sports began in 1878. Longines designed a chronograph and carved a jockey and his mount on it. Longines first cooperated with an international equestrian obstacle course in 1912. Today, the brand has become an active partner in flat horse racing, endurance racing and obstacle course.
On May 17, local time, the 70th Cannes International Film Festival opened. The famous watch brand Chopard has been the official partner for the 20th consecutive year, and launched the L.U.C XPS 1860 Black Tie Platinum Limited Watch.
The Chopard L.U.C XPS 1860 series is a model of elegance and simplicity. It is launched in a limited edition of 20 pieces and is made of precious metal platinum. The slim case is 40 mm in diameter and has a black gold dial. The center of the dial is decorated with guilloché, and the radial pattern is reminiscent of the sun in Cannes. The outer ring is set with rectangular hour markers and is indicated with a toffee needle. This watch follows the aesthetic characteristics of the L.U.C series with perfectly proportioned lines and is equipped with Chopard’s own ultra-thin self-winding movement.
The L.U.C 96.01-L movement is equipped with a 22K gold miniature oscillating weight, only 3.3 mm thick, and has a dual barrel (Twin® technology), which can ensure a power reserve of up to 65 hours. Through the sapphire crystal case back, you can appreciate the fine retouching of the movement. The bridge and the substrate are chamfered and decorated with Geneva ripples and round grains. This movement is engraved with the Geneva mark, showing the fine craftsmanship of Chopard’s fine watchmaking.
