The Record Collection Perfectly Embodied By Longines Ambassadors Of Elegance Kate Winslet & Simon Baker

Longines celebrated its Record collection during an exclusive event held in the gardens of the sumptuous Château de Chantilly. This line, which conveys the essence of Longines, one of timeless elegance and watchmaking excellence, is perfectly embodied by the brand’s Ambassadors of Elegance Kate Winslet and Simon Baker, brought together for the very first time for the occasion. Earlier that day, these two Hollywood stars, who have been part of the Longines Family for many years already, took part in a photoshooting together and presented the fruit of their collaboration to the international guests and media in attendance.

On the eve of the much-awaited Prix de Diane Longines, the Swiss watchmaking brand held a special event in the breath-taking setting of the Château de Chantilly with its Ambassadors of Elegance and acclaimed actors Kate Winslet and Simon Baker. Longines was proud to welcome them for the very first time together in a same venue. Before attending this elegant celebration, Kate Winslet and Simon Baker had the opportunity to take part in a joint photoshooting, a premiere for the two actors, highlighting a pair watch from the Record collection. Together with the Longines management, Kate and Simon were delighted to present the exclusive visuals during the celebration.
