    Longines HKIR Prelude Race Night

    During the event, the brand highlighted a model from The Longines Master Collection as the Official Watch of the event. The self-winding movement timepiece is characterized by a moonphase indicator and a refined aesthetic creating a balance between technical excellence and classic elegance.   As part of its partnership with the Hong Kong Jockey Club, the Swiss watch brand is also proud to be the Title Partner and Official Timekeeper of the LONGINES Hong Kong International Races week, including the LONGINES International Jockeys’ Championship held on Wednesday December 8th and the LONGINES Hong Kong International Races held on Sunday December 12th.   LONGINES’ passion for equestrian sports dates back to 1878, when it produced a chronograph engraved with a jockey and its horse that could be used for precise timing to a second. As of 1881, this model was extremely popular among jockeys and horse-lovers, and was soon being used by most of the sports judges in New York. Today, LONGINES’ involvement in equestrian sports includes horseracing, show jumping, driving, eventing and dressage competitions.
