On Friday 2 and Saturday 3 November this year, Swiss luxury watch brand Longines served as Official Partner, Timekeeper, and Watch of the 35th Breeders’ Cup World Championships in Louisville, KY (USA). The winged hourglass brand was proud to time Accelerate’s exciting victory in the Breeders’ Cup Classic that took place on Saturday at the prestigious Churchill Downs racetrack.
Affirming its longstanding connection with the equestrian world, Longines was the Title Partner of the Longines Breeders’ Cup Distaff race, as well as of the Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf race, both run on Saturday. The spectators present at this world-class racing show had the opportunity to discover the Official Watch of the event: an elegant blue dial Conquest V.H.P. model.
The brand also hosted the Longines Prize for Elegance competition over the weekend at the Churchill Downs racetrack. In keeping with the brand’s motto ‘Elegance is an Attitude’, the fashion contest celebrated individual expressions of elegance, rewarding those Breeder’s Cup attendees who exude style, sophistication and confidence with an elegant Longines timepiece.
About the Conquest V.H.P.
The new Conquest V.H.P. “Very High Precision” watch by Longines represents the ultimate step in quartz precision wristwatches, featuring timekeeping technology pioneered by the Swiss brand. This watch is equipped with a movement developed by the ETA manufacturing company exclusively for Longines. The movement of the Conquest V.H.P. is renowned for its high degree of precision for an analog watch (± 5 s/yr), and its ability to reset its hands after an impact or exposure to a magnetic field using the GPD (gear position detection) system. This Longines watch’s attractive features are further complemented by its superior battery life and a perpetual calendar.
