Longines Longines Speed Challenge in Hong Kong
Daniel Deusser on Happiness van T Paradijs won last Saturday this trial known as the fastest in the world.
With his horse Happiness van T Paradijs, the German rider was the fastest, followed by Pius Schwizer on Leonard de la Ferme CH and Bertram Allen on Quiet Easy. The challenge for the competitors of this trial is to achieve the fastest time, knowing that a fault only leads to a two second penalty, instead of the usual four. This rule pushes the riders to run the course as fast as they can, creating a high level of suspense.
The Longines Masters of Hong Kong is the third and last leg of the series and Longines was the Title Partner and the Official Timekeeper of this intercontinental event of showjumping. The Swiss watch brand also presented the Official Watch of the Longines Masters of Hong Kong, a new model of The Longines Equestrian Collection.
Longines offers to the Longines Masters of Hong Kong public to have a look back in its rich history through an exhibition entitled Longines Flagship 1957-2017, that celebrates the 60th anniversary of this collection. For the very first time, old Flagship watches have been taken out of the Longines Museum in Switzerland where they are usually kept.
