HH Sheikh Hamdan wins the 2015 Endurance Cup Presented by Longines

Dubai (United Arab Emirates) / Saint-Imier (Switzerland), 12 January 2015 – On 10 January 2015, HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai & Chairman of the Dubai Sports Council, won the 2015 HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Endurance Cup presented by Longines and hosted by the Dubai Equestrian Club at the Dubai International Endurance City.

To further its long-term commitment with Meydan, Longines was once again the Presenting Partner, Official Timekeeper and Official Watch of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Endurance Cup, which took place in Dubai on 10 January 2015. This impressive international event featured some of the top names from the world of endurance riding competing over a distance of 160 km. The winner of the cup, HH Sheilkh Hamdan, received, along with the prestigious trophy, an elegant Longines watch, the Longines 24 Hours Single Push-Piece Chrono. This stainless steel chronograph watch piece of the Heritage Collection houses a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement. Its refined black dial displays hours in a 24 hours scale, minutes and small seconds at 9 o’clock and date. In addition, the total prize money for the winners of the Endurance Cup amounted to AED 9.6 million.

Longines is a significant partner of endurance riding. Besides the renowned HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Endurance Cup presented by Longines since 2010, the Swiss watch brand is also the title partner of the Longines FEI World Endurance Championships, which will take place in 2016. The discipline shares Longines’ values of elegance, precision, reliability and a perfect mastery of technique.

The passion of Longines for equestrian sports dates back to 1878, with the design of a chronograph featuring an engraved jockey and his mount. In 1912 the brand is partnering for the first time with an international show-jumping competition in Portugal. This passion continues today as, in addition to endurance riding, Longines is also committed in show jumping and horseracing.

Elegance, Performance and Tradition are values that both equestrian sport and Longines share. Longines' growing involvement and partnerships to umbrella institutions, prestigious events, as well as numerous races and competitions in equestrian sport make the Swiss watch brand resolutely indissociable from the equestrian world.
