Longines The first Swiss edition of the Longines Masters
Title Partner and Official Timekeeper of the event, the brand lent its name to two of the weekend’s key trials: the Longines Speed Challenge and the Longines Grand Prix of Lausanne.
After four days of competitions held by Lake Leman, in the Place Bellerive, the first Swiss stage of the Longines Masters concluded on Sunday with the Longines Grand Prix of Lausanne, which brought together several of the sport’s biggest names. Following an emotional trial, rider Gudrun Patteet (BEL) on Sea Coast Pebbles Z finished with a well-deserved victory. They were joined on the podium by Giulia Martinengo Marquet (IT) on Elzas and Nicola Philippaerts (BEL) on Katanga v/h Dingeshof, who came second and third place respectively.
On Saturday night, the participants in the Longines Speed Challenge – the weekend’s second key trial – pushed the limits of speed in this trial renowned for being the fastest in the world. In the end, the Emanuele Gaudiano/Carlotta pair were the winners, finishing the trial ahead of Steve Guerdat on Evita and Philippe Rozier on Cristallo A LM.
As the Title Partner and Official Timekeeper of the Longines Masters of Lausanne, the Swiss watchmaking brand, alongside EEM, the organisers, rewarded these two experienced riders with the trial trophy, as well as some elegant Longines watches.
The spectators present during this equestrian event devoted to sporting performance also had the chance to discover the Longines Masters of Lausanne’s Official Watch, a model from the HydroConquest collection. Drawing inspiration from the world of water sports, the pieces from this collection display a bezel enhanced by a ceramic coloured insert, which matches the colour of the dial and brings them a modernized design and sporty silhouette.
