The 42nd ‘Hampton Classic Horse Show’ is returning to Bridgehampton, New York, to be held again. Swiss watch brand Longines shares the same values with the Hampton Equestrian Show as tradition, performance and elegance, so it is logical to serve as the official timekeeper of this world-leading equestrian event for five consecutive years.
This weekend’s equestrian event kicked off on September 2 (Saturday). The first game was the Longines Cup. As a result, Shane Sweetnam and ‘Main Road’ won the trophy with brilliant performances, followed by McLain Ward and Andrew Ramsay, which were runner-up and runner-up respectively.
On September 3rd (Sunday), Daniel Bluman took the ‘Ladriano Z’ to stand out, winning the championship at the Hampton Classic Grand Prix. Richie Moloney, who drove the ‘Carrabis Z’, accumulated enough points in the ‘Open Jumper’ level last week and was awarded an award at the ‘Longines Rider Challenge’ award ceremony . Richie Moloney, Daniel Bluman, Brianne Goutal and McLain Ward were awarded Longines watches in recognition of their achievements.
A watch from the Longines Equestrian series was selected as the designated watch for the 2017 “Hampton Equestrian Show”. The design of the Longines riders collection is inspired by the classic shapes and characteristics of the equestrian world, including stirrups, buckles, stirrups, exquisitely crafted leather and jockey’s clothing.
The design inspiration for the ‘Hampton Grand Prix’ watch is especially drawn from the stables of Frances-Montagnes, Switzerland’s only foal breed. The shape of the stainless steel case is based on the rectangular buckle on the stirrup. This timepiece is equipped with a silver ‘damier’ checkered dial with blue steel hands and diamond hour markers. Case with 60 diamonds and stainless steel bracelet.
