Erik Lindbergh celebrated as the first Longines Lindbergh Award recipient

Corporate
2018-05-09

Longines is delighted to announce that the first Longines Lindbergh Award recipient is Erik Lindbergh, Charles Lindbergh’s grandson. Pilot, artist and designer, Erik Lindbergh follows the footsteps of his grandfather as he recreated his flight between New York and Paris in his own single-engine aircraft. Erik Lindbergh is also the Director of the Lindbergh Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to furthering his grandparents belief in creating a balance between technological advancement and environmental preservation.
 

On June 16, 1927, Charles Lindbergh received a $25,000 prize in New York, awarded for his non-stop New York to Paris flight timey by Longines. 90 years later, Longines decided to celebrate this achievement by creating a $25,000 prize, awarded each year to an adventurer or pioneer who has achieved a feat in his field, all in the spirit of elegance and performance dear to the brand.  The Longines Lindbergh Award will be presented for the first time in New York, at the New York Times Building, on May 21, the anniversary of the arrival of the famous aviator in Paris.

The ties between Longines and Charles Lindbergh were close.  Following his crossing, the aviator approached the watch brand to create a timepiece that meets his needs as an aviator, and thus was born the Longines Hour Angle watch, a veritable icon in the history of the company.
