Jumping Longines Crans-Montana 2018

Der Wouter Devos (BEL) gewinnt nach einem spannenden Wettkampf den Grand Prix Longines in Crans-Montana mit seinem Tonik Hero. Er verwies Nicolas Deseuzes (FRA) mit Quilane de Lezeaux auf den zweiten und Niklaus Rutschi (SUI) mit Carassina auf den dritten Platz. Der Gewinner wurde mit einer edlen Uhr der Marke geehrt.

Bei dieser Gelegenheit unterstützte die Uhrenmarke JustWorld International mit der Aktion Clear The Jump. Jedes Mal, wenn ein Reiter und sein Pferd das Dreier-Longines-Hindernis ohne Fehler übersprungen hatte, erhielt die Stiftung, die gegen die Armut und für die Entwicklungshilfe der Kinder weltweit kämpft, den Gegenwert von 200 Mahlzeiten. Dank dieser Aktion hat Longines dazu beigetragen, 5000 Mahlzeiten zugunsten der JustWorld International Foundation anzubieten.

Dieses Jahr wieder war Crans-Montana Treffpunkt der Weltklasse-Reiter und Pferde, die sich in spannenden Wettkämpfen miteinander gemessen haben. Die Schweizer Uhrenmarke freute sich daher besonders, das Jumping Longines Crans-Montana als Titelpartner und Offizieller Zeitnehmer zu unterstützen.

Die offizielle Uhr des diesjährigen Jumping Longines Crans-Montana war ein edles Modell aus der neuen Record Kollektion. Jedes einzelne Modell dieser Kollektion ist von der Schweizer Chronometer-Prüfstelle COSC als „Chronometer“ zertifiziert.

Die Partnerschaft zwischen Longines und dem Jumping Longines Crans-Montana verstärkt das traditionelle und dauerhafte Engagement des Schweizer Uhrenherstellers im Reitsport. Bereits im Jahr 1878 produzierte Longines erstmals einen Chronographen, auf dem ein Jockey mit seinem Pferd eingraviert war. Darüber hinaus engagiert sich die Marke seit 1912 für Wettkämpfe im Springreiten. Heute ist Longines im Pferdesport neben dem Springreiten in den Disziplinen Flachrennen, Distanz-, Dressur- und Vielseitigkeitsreiten tätig.
