The winner was presented with an elegant Longines watch.
Numerous visitors witnessed this 5-star-event at the St. Jakobshalle and admired the performances of the world’s best riders and horses. During the spectacular Longines Grand Prix on Sunday, one of the highlights of this year’s Longines CSI Basel, the best pair was Luciana Diniz (POR) on Fit For Fun. Marlon Modolo Zanotelli (BRA) on Extra van Essene finished second while Scott Brash from Great Britain riding Hello Sanctos reached the third place. The winner was presented with an elegant Longines timepiece by Mr. Walter von Känel, President of Longines.
The watch brand has supported the Longines CSI Basel for the second year in a row as the Title Partner and Official Timekeeper. In recent years, this event has become one of the world's best indoor competitions. In addition, this partnership is highly representative of Longines' intrinsic values, such as elegance, performance and the passion for horses and equestrian sports and reaffirms the Swiss watch brand's commitment in this field. Longines' passion for equestrian sports dates back to 1878 with the production of a chronograph engraved with a jockey and his mount. Today, the brand is involved in show-jumping, flat racing and endurance competitions.
The official watch of the Longines CSI Basel 2015 watch was a ladies model – set with diamonds – of the Conquest Classic collection, which is dedicated to the world of equestrian sports. These models underline the values the brand has always upheld. All fitted with self-winding calibres, this collection is at the same time totally contemporary and perfectly timeless.
