Dubai (UAE), April 10-12, 2014 – Skydive Dubai recently lit up with the annual Julius Baer Beach Polo Cup that took place between the 10th and 12th of April. In its 10th year now, the Beach Polo cup once again witnessed the support from prominent Swiss watchmaker, Longines, the official timekeeper and official watch of the event.
A sport that is synonymous with prestige and elegance, the Julius Baer Beach Polo Cup is an internationally, celebrated social event highlighted in every major sporting and social calendar. After two exhilarating and entertaining days of competition, it was the determined father-son duo, Mohammed Al Habtoor and Habtoor Al Habtoor along with their Argentine teammate Guillermo Cuitino, of the Vistajet Bombardier team who emerged triumphant. Longines bestowed the exultant trio with three elegant timepieces from the brand’s Conquest Classic line.
The stunning timepiece in steel that was awarded to the champion players hails from the brand’s striking Conquest Classic line and is a fitting tribute to the chronographs produced from 1881 for race-goers and jockeys in New York.
