The fashion contest celebrated individual expressions of elegance, rewarding those Breeders’ Cup attendees who exude style, sophistication and confidence with a Longines timepiece.
 

As the Official Watch of the Breeders’ Cup, Longines was also delighted to highlight a new model from The Longines Master Collection. Powered by a new self-winding movement developed exclusively for Longines, this timepiece is characterized by a moon phase indicator and a refined aesthetic, creating a balance between technical excellence and classic elegance.
