An elegant race day at Royal Ascot with Longines Ambassador of Elegance Eddie Peng

Horse Racing
June 21, 2018

Characterized by a typical English sartorial elegance, Royal Ascot is considered worldwide to be one of the most prestigious sporting events in the calendar. After celebrating its ten-year partnership with Ascot in 2016, Longines proudly announced last week the renewal of its long-lasting association with the Berkshire racecourse. Under this agreement, the brand becomes an Official Partner of Ascot and continues its designation as Official Timekeeper and Watch. At Royal Ascot, the brand is also given an elevated profile, which includes stalls branding, on Wednesdays.

This day was thus chosen by Longines to invite its Ambassador of Elegance, acclaimed Asian actor Eddie Peng, to experience the Royal Meeting’s unique atmosphere. Following the remarkable victory of Kew Gardens in the Queens’ Vase, Eddie Peng, together with Longines Vice President and Head of International Marketing Juan-Carlos Capelli, presented Longines timepieces to the winning owners, lad, trainer Aidan O’Brien, jockey Ryan Moore. Later on that day, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall rewarded the winning connections of Poet’s Word with the brand’s timepieces as well.

 

In line with the refinement of the Royal Meeting, Longines is highlighting the Record collection as the Official Watch of the event. The automatic models in this line combine classic elegance and excellence, aspiring to become the spearheads of the brand. And there is no shortage of arguments for these exceptional timepieces, whose movement includes a single-crystal silicon balance spring with unique properties. In addition, they are certified as a “chronometer” by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), a designation awarded to all of the pieces in the Record collection.

Longines’ passion for equestrian sport dates back to 1878, when it produced a chronograph engraved with a jockey and his mount. Three years later, it can be found on American racecourses, adopted by horse enthusia­sts. In 1912, the company partnered for the first time with an international show jumping competition. Today Longines’ involvement in equestrian sports includes show-jumping, flat racing, endurance, driving, dressage and eventing competitions.
