Longines proudly times 2018 Breeders’ Cup World Championships in Louisville

On Friday 2 and Saturday 3 November, Longines served as Official Partner, Timekeeper, and Watch of the 35th Breeders’ Cup World Championships in Louisville, KY (USA). Considered by many to be one of the premiere thoroughbred horseracing events of the year, the Breeders’ Cup attracts the best horses, breeders, trainers, and owners from across the globe.


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 the brand’s longstanding connection with the equestrian world, Longines was also the proud Title Partner of the Longines Breeders’ Cup Distaff race, as well as of the Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf race, both run on Saturday. The winning owner, breeder, trainer, and jockey of the Breeders’ Cup Classic, the Breeders’ Cup Distaff race, and the Breeders’ Cup Turf race, each received stunning Longines watches, personally presented by Longines representatives.


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.


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.


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.

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.
