Longines celebrates Coventry Stakes’ winner Calyx on first day of Royal Ascot

As the Official Partner and Timekeeper of Royal Ascot, the Swiss watch brand Longines was proud to reward Calyx’s winning owner, trainer, lad and jockey – Frankie Dettori, winner of the 2015 Longines World’s Best Jockey – with elegant Longines timepieces, following their victory in the Coventry Stakes. Later in the day, Her Royal Highness Princess Anne also presented the King’s Stand Stakes winners with watches from the brand.

 

Characterized by the most traditional English sartorial elegance, Royal Ascot was the equestrian rendezvous chosen by the brand to invite the American rider Ariana Rockefeller and UK couple Ali Gordon and Lydia Millen to take part in a photo shoot featuring the Official Watch of the event, a ladies’ model and a gent’s model from the Record collection. Combining classic elegance with excellence, all timepieces in this line integrate a silicon balance spring with unique properties, and are certified as “chronometers” by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).

 

Longines recently announced the renewal of its long-lasting partnership with Ascot, which sees the brand become an Official Partner of the racecourse and continue its designation as the Official Timekeeper. At Royal Ascot, the brand is also given an elevated profile, which includes stalls branding, on Wednesdays.

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.
