Longines The 2014 Longines Prize for Precision
The famous Swiss watch brand was delighted to present the Longines Prize for Precision at the finals held this weekend in Lausanne.
The Longines Prize for Precision was awarded to the two most precise classical archers over the season, Brady Ellison (USA) and Aida Roman (MEX), who also both clinched the World Cup title. Each was presented with a trophy, a Longines watch and a cheque for CHF 5,000.
Longines is proud to have supported the Archery World Cup as its Official Partner and Timekeeper. The Swiss watch brand is also proud to announce the continuation of the partnership with World Archery that it entered into in 2008. "We are very pleased to renew our support for an ancient art and discipline which embodies the brand's long-standing involvement in precision and traditional sports" said Walter von Känel, the President of Longines. "Moreover, the elegance of this sport, which requires extreme skill, concentration, precision, balance and discipline, is a perfect reflection of our core values, summed up in our slogan "Elegance is an attitude".
The Official Watch for the event was a steel chronograph from the brand's Conquest Classic collection. With a diameter of 41 mm, this model features a black dial and houses an exclusive column-wheel chronograph movement.
