World Archery has renewed its partnership with Longines as its official timing and scoring partner.
The Swiss watch brand already provides the in-venue and on-screen timing clock at the World Archery tournaments.
It also provides timepieces for the winners of the Hyundai Archery World Cup stages, the final and world championship events, and presents its very own Longines Prize for Precision.
World Archery President, Professor Dr Ugur Erdener, said: “Longines and World Archery share the pursuit of perfection, the former in timekeeping and the latter in precision sports. We are happy to continue this valuable partnership for timing at our tournaments and look forward to awarding elegant Longines timepieces to more of our world-class athletes.”
Longines Vice President and Head of Marketing, Juan-Carlos Capelli, added: “Longines is pleased to announce the renewal of its partnership with World Archery as the Official Partner and Timekeeper of each Hyundai Archery World Cup stage and World Archery Championships.”
“The Swiss watch brand is also proud to present the Longines Prize for Precision during these events, which rewards the female and male athletes who have scored the most 10s throughout the whole season.”
“This sport embodies the values upheld by the brand since its inception, namely tradition, elegance and performance.”
