The Longines Conquest Classic Chronograph is everything its title suggests so that it is: a tri-compax chronograph with traditional elements of design, made included in the brand’s Conquest collection and therefore styled to represent what Longines loves to call “sporting elegance.” We continued to invest some wrist-time by using it, because it was the watch passed out towards the winning jockey of the year’s stay in the Triple Crown race of thoroughbred horses. In 2014, Longines ongoing their lengthy support of professional equestrian sport because the official timekeeper for that Triple Crown. Even though California Chrome offered up a disappointing show in the Belmont Stakes, Longines remained the program, because they have for more than a century.
This past year, we attended the 139th Running from the Kentucky Derby, and were treated to some hands-on overview of their Saint Imier Chronograph, the timepiece given to the winning jockeys. This season, we became a member of Longines in Baltimore for that running from the Preakness, the 2nd stay in the Triple Crown races, and were given 2010 form of the Jockey’s watch, a Longines Conquest Classic Chronograph.
As the Preakness isn’t as refined because the Derby regarding the revealing of men’s and women’s style (it’s, in the end, in Baltimore…), it is evenly the spectacle, with live music, entertainment, more drink and food than you may imagine, along with a small dose of ill-advised racetrack betting – simply to balance everything out. In a nutshell, it had been an enjoyable experience, and thank you to Longines for getting us along again this season.
