From August 17th to 20th, Gstaad and the surrounding fields of its airport were transformed into Argentinian-style pampas.
Six thousand spectators felt the ground shake as 16 of the top Polo players on the circuit took to the fields creating a blur of hooves and mallets, all sporting the colours of the Hublot Polo Gold Cup.
The tournament – a category 6 on the circuit – is one of the most prestigious in Europe. For the first time, it hosted four teams with a total handicap of 14 – the highest level ever played on Swiss soil. After the qualifying round on Thursday August 17th and the semi-finals on Saturday August 19th, “Banque Eric Sturdza” beat “Riva” to secure overall victory.
As the tournament’s Official Timekeeper, Hublot and its Classic Fusion Chronograph Chukker counted the 7.5 minutes of each of the 24 chukkers played during the competition.
