Longines served as official partner, timekeeper, and supplied the official watch of the 35th Breeders’ Cup World Championships last weekend.
It hopes the partnership with the event, which took place on November 2-3 in Louisville, Kentucky, would affirm the brand’s long standing connection with the equestrian world.
Spectators in attendance were also given the chance to see the official watch of the event, a blue dial Conquest V.H.P. model.
The new Swiss-made piece features an ETA movement exclusively made for the brand.
The watch also has the ability to reset its hands after an impact or exposure to magnetic fields using a specialist gear position detection system.
The watchmaker, which offers timepieces in sport, equestrian and heritage collections, also acted as title sponsor of the Distaff and Turn races which were featured on the first day of racing.
