Authentic galloped to victory in the 146th Kentucky Derby

On Saturday, September 5, Longines was proud to time the victory of Authentic, ridden by John Velazquez, in the 146th Kentucky Derby in Louisville (USA). To mark their remarkable victory in what is considered “the most exciting two minutes in sports”, the Swiss watchmaker awarded Authentic’s owner, trainer and jockey with Longines timepieces. Second place was taken by Tiz The Law followed by Mr. Big News. Earlier that day, the Longines Churchill Distaff Turf Mile prize was claimed by Beau Recall, ridden by Manuel Franco, who established a lead over Newspaperofrecord, close behind.

 

On Friday, September 4, Longines also served as Title Partner, Official Timekeeper and Official Watch of the Longines Kentucky Oaks, with an exciting win from Shedaresthedevil and Florent Geroux.

 

This weekend, fans from all over the country showed their Oaks and Derby style from home in the Kentucky Derby Fashion Contest by Longines. A panel of judges, including Longines U.S. Brand President Pascal Savoy, selected the most elegant contestants, keeping with the brand’s motto, “Elegance is an Attitude.”

 

Longines Spirit: The Official Watch of the 146th Longines Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby

 

The Longines Spirit collection is designed in the same manner as the timepieces of the famous pioneers as they conquered the air, land and sea relying on their Longines time instruments. Legendary aviators and explorers like Amelia Earhart, Paul-Emile Victor, Elinor Smith and Howard Hughes put their trust in the winged hourglass brand on their incredible journeys. Today, Longines presents new timepieces that are a testimony to their pioneering spirit. A glowing tribute to these exceptional men and women who, by a record, an accomplishment or a display of courage, have left their mark on history - encouraging new generations to push the boundaries. All models from the Longines Spirit collection come with state-of-the-art technology, resulting in highly accurate movements that are all Chronometer-certified.
