This weekend, the best riders and horses were gathered in the French capital for the Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping, the eighth stage of the Longines Global Champions Tour. On Saturday, after a thrilling trial, Bertram Allen on Romanov won the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Paris, followed by Diniz Luciana (Portugal) on Fit For Fun 13 and Darragh Kenny (Ireland) on Sans Souci Z.
For the second year running, the Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping is included in the Longines Global Champions Tour (LGCT), a prestigious 15-stage tour of which Longines is the Title Partner and Official Timekeeper since 2013. In addition, this 5* show jumping event, the highest category in the FEI’s hierarchy, counts towards the world’s ranking of the discipline: the Longines Rankings.
This event was the perfect opportunity to discover the Longines DolceVita collection. Since its inception, this line has illustrated worldwide the brand’s contemporary elegance. This year Longines has decided to offer a new interpretation of this collection, subtly combining geometric lines with soft curves.
The Official Watch of the Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping, decorated with diamonds and cased in steel, features a silver-coloured "flinqué" dial adorned with painted Roman numerals. Driven by their quartz movement, the blued-steel hands point to the passing hours and minutes. This timepiece is mounted on a stainless steel bracelet.
