Longines Watch is Official Timekeeper of Glasgow 2014

Longines is the Official Timekeeper and Official Watch of the Glasgow 2014 XX Commonwealth Games.

Glasgow 2014 begins July 23rd and will be the largest multi-sport event ever held in Scotland. A total of 17 sports and 261 medal events will be contested over 11 days by 4,100 competing athletes, and Longines will look after all timing, scoring and results.

"Timing, Scoring and Results is absolutely critical to delivering an outstanding, athlete centred, sport focused Games and we look forward to working closely with Longines," said Glasgow 2014 Chairman Lord Smith.

Longines has been developing its timekeeping technology with increasing precision since 1878 and has a long history as the official timekeeper of world championships. The Swiss watch brand now has a prominent role in international sport, namely in equestrian sports, gymnastics, archery, alpine skiing and at the French Open.

Walter von Känel, President of Longines, said: "Thanks to our long history in the world of sport, Longines is considered as an essential partner to an event which embodies our brand’s values, namely elegance, tradition and performance. We look forward to working with Glasgow 2014 to deliver a superb event, with a lasting legacy for Scotland."

Longines was previously the timekeeper of the Commonwealth Games in Perth, Australia, in 1962.
