Longines hosted the prestigious Longines CSI Basel from 9 to 12 January 2014. Perfectly embodying the core values expressed by the Longines slogan, "Elegance is an attitude", the event offered a great opportunity to discover Conquest Classic, a collection dedicated to the equestrian world.
For the first time, Longines was the Title Partner, Official Timekeeper and Official Watch of the event. In recent years, the Longines CSI Basel event has become one of the world's best indoor competitions. This new partnership, highly representative of Longines' very own values, reaffirms the Swiss watch brand's commitment to equestrian sports. The official Longines CSI Basel 2014 watch was a steel chronograph from the Conquest Classic collection. This sporty watch, 41 mm in diameter, is driven by an exclusive column wheel calibre and features a black dial.
The weekend was marked by the victory of Rolf-Göran Bengtsson on Casall ASK in the Longines Grand Prix, a competition held in two rounds on 12 January 2014. Amidst the general excitement, Rolf-Göran Bengtsson was presented with an elegant Longines watch by Mr. Walter von Känel, President of Longines.
