The ‘Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup ™ Jumping’ was held on the last day of the 2016 International Official Equestrian Obstacle Race (CSIO Barcelona), with the German team Won the championship. A number of events were also staged the previous day at Barcelona’s Real Club de Polo.
On Sunday, the Brazilian team won the Longines Challenge Cup first, followed by the Longines Cup of the City of Barcelona with Darragh Kenny riding the GoEasydeMuze. All winners were awarded an elegant Longines watch in recognition of their victory.
As a core partner of the International Equestrian Federation (FEI), Longines also logically became the official partner, official timekeeper and designated watch of the “2016 CSIOBarcelona”. The designated watch for the event is a diamond-set women’s stainless steel model from Longines DolceVita with a solid 18K gold crown. This series of watches showcases the contemporary elegance of Longines to the world ....
This year, Longines launched the new Record series to celebrate the 185th anniversary of the brand. The Record series can be divided into four different sizes: 26mm, 30mm, 38.5mm, and 40mm. There are six styles for men and seven styles for women. All models are equipped with a three-handed dial and a date display. In addition to the two women’s watches with a stainless steel case, the other models have a stainless steel case with a stainless steel bracelet or alligator strap.
The Record collection combines classic elegant design with superior quality, which reflects the essence of Longines watchmaking technology. Continuing tradition and persisting in innovation, the Record series interprets Longines’ pure watchmaking expertise, and also embodies the brand’s expectations for future development. The Record series has attracted much attention due to the use of single crystal silicon hairsprings in the movement. For Longines, this is also the first watch series to be certified by the Swiss Astronomical Observatory (COSC).

The superior quality of the Longines Record series benefits from the core component it uses-the hairspring. The balance spring and the balance wheel component cooperate to vibrate back and forth around the equilibrium position, and must maintain an extremely stable oscillation cycle. However, factors such as magnetic fields, temperature changes, and wear due to hundreds of millions of movements per year can affect the smooth running of the hairspring. In order to improve accuracy and extend life, Longines decided to add a single crystal silicon spring to a high-quality movement. Lightweight single crystal silicon is not oxidizable, so it can avoid the effects of standard temperature fluctuations, magnetic fields, and atmospheric pressure. This technology is the core of creating a masterpiece of wrist and continuing the tradition of pure watchmaking.
The superb craftsmanship is worthy of recognition. With high precision, all models of the Longines Record series have been awarded the ‘Precision Chronometer’ certification by the Swiss Observatory. All self-winding mechanical movements that have been certified by the Observatory are required to pass the individual inspection of the Swiss Observatory, an independent agency. The observatory certification on the watch also marks a pure and extraordinary quality....
