The gymnastic star will represent a model in steel and rose gold cap from the Conquest Classic collection. Housing a mechanical calibre, this magnificent watch features a white mother-of-pearl dial and 12 diamond indices.

Voted Swiss Athlete of the Year in 2013, the popular Giulia Steingruber has been excelling at the European Championships, notably in winning the gold medal in the vault two years in a row, in 2013 and this year in Sofia, Bulgaria, where she also won the bronze medal in the floor exercise. “Gymnastics requires power, flexibility and elegance – a key feature of any Longines watch,” underlines Giulia. “It’s an honour for me to join the Longines Ambassadors family and I look forward to our collaboration!”
