Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping

Widely considered the greatest challenge in equestrianism, the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping rewards the rider who wins, consecutively, the Grand Prix at three of the four show jumping Majors, namely, The Dutch Masters in ’s-Hertogenbosch, the CSIO Spruce Meadows ‘Masters’ Tournament in Calgary, the CHIO Aachen and the CHI Geneva.

BENARI Jewelers has the pleasure of housing an astounding selection of watches by the most prolific manufacturers in the industry’s history, Rolex. This esteemed name is one that has long been synonymous with grandeur, precision, and quality. Their influence extends even into the world of equestrian excellence, a field in which elegance and exactitude are similarly honored. It is our joy to showcase a curated selection of Rolex timepieces that speak to their long legacy of achievement and innovation from both our Exton and Newton Square, PA jewelry stores.

To date, Rolex Testimonee Scott Brash from Scotland is the only competitor to achieve the feat, having done so across 2014 and 2015.

Launched in 2013, the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping was initially comprised of the Majors in Aachen, Calgary and Geneva. In 2018, The Dutch Masters was added to the Grand Slam, which now consists of two outdoor competitions, the CHIO Aachen and the CSIO Spruce Meadows ‘Masters’, and two indoor, the CHI Geneva and The Dutch Masters.

Rolex's partnerships in equestrianism thrive at the pinnacle of the sport, with world-class riders and events, as well as behind the scenes.

The Dutch Masters

First held in 1967 in the medieval city of ’s-Hertogenbosch, The Dutch Masters attracts the world’s leading competitors. The event, blending magnificent show jumping and elegant dressage, is considered the Netherlands’ primary indoor equestrian competition. Rolex has been Main Sponsor and Title Sponsor of The Dutch Masters’ Grand Prix since 2014. The 2024 edition takes place from 7 to 10 March, culminating with the Rolex Grand Prix on the Sunday, the year’s first Major, which counts towards the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping. Testimonee Daniel Deusser has triumphed at this event twice, in 2015 and 2022.

The CHIO Aachen World Equestrian Festival

The CHIO Aachen is a magnetic occasion as competitors and spectators alike revel in the electric atmosphere at the revered Aachen Soers showgrounds. From show jumping, dressage and eventing to vaulting and four-in-hand driving, the world’s finest equestrian talent comes together at the start of the northern hemisphere summer to treat fans to a unique experience. Aachen, which Rolex has partnered for more than 20 years, stands as a beacon of tradition and excellence.

CSIO Spruce Meadows ‘Masters’ Tournament

Staged in Calgary, Canada, the CSIO Spruce Meadows ‘Masters’ Tournament’s spectacular setting is matched by the challenges posed by the course set-up to the world’s best horses and riders who compete there. Rolex is Official Sponsor of this event, regarded by many enthusiasts as the leading equestrian gathering in North America, and Presenting Sponsor of the CPKC ‘International’ Grand Prix, which counts towards the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping.

The CHI Geneva

Rolex has been the Presenting Sponsor of the CHI Geneva, one of the world’s most prestigious equestrian competitions, for almost 30 years. The event brings together an extraordinary line-up of top-level riders in the world’s largest indoor equestrian arena. Known also as the Geneva International Horse Show, it was created in 1926. In 2019, it was named the best indoor show jumping event in the world for the 10th time and the best cross indoor event for the first time by the highly respected L’Année Hippique yearbook, based on the votes of riders, journalists and personalities of the equestrian world. Competition highlights include the Rolex Grand Prix and the Rolex International Jumping Riders Club (IJRC) Top 10 Final.
