Longines Kicks Off the 2017-2018 Racing Season at Meydan Racecourse

On Thursday 23 November 2017, Longines officially kicked off the Racing Season at Meydan Racecourse in Dubai with a gala dinner. As the Official Partner and the Official Timekeeper of Meydan and with a commitment to the equestrian arena that continues to grow stronger, Longines presented a total of seven races during the evening.

On this occasion, the Swiss watch brand also unveiled the Official Watch of the event, a new variation of The Longines Master Collection. This timepiece displays a sunray blue dial and is complimented by an alligator watch strap of the same colour as the dial for total harmony.

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.
