This weekend, the Bird’s Nest hosted the 2018 edition of the Longines Equestrian Beijing Masters, gathering the best Chinese and international riders for three intense days of competition. As the Title Partner and Official Timekeeper of the event, Longines was proud to time the remarkable performance of Henrik von Eckermann on Cincitty who claimed the Longines Grand Prix, which rounded off the weekend. The podium was completed by Ciren Bianba on High Sky du Sud and Daniel Deusser on Gringovantelzenhout. Taiwanese actor and Longines Ambassador of Elegance Eddie Peng who joined the brand in Beijing as a special guest, presented Henrik von Eckermann with an elegant Longines timepiece.
The 2018 Longines Equestrian Beijing Masters were a unique opportunity for the winged hourglass brand to highlight a gent model from the Record collection. Featuring a white matt dial with painted roman numerals, this timepiece is certified as a “chronometer” by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). A stainless steel bracelet completes this exceptional piece.
