Longines timed the victory of Found and Ryan Moore at the 2016 Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe

Sunday 2 October 2016, Found and 2014 Longines World’s Best Jockey Ryan Moore crossed first the finishing line of the 2,400-metre Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in Chantilly. This is the second victory of the British jockey at this legendary horserace. The ten thousands of spectators were rewarded with a truly thrilling race day, of which Longines is the Official Partner, Timekeeper and Watch. The Swiss watch brand was also presenting the Prix de l’Opéra Longines, a 2000 meter race reserved for thoroughbred fillies and mares, which was won by Speedy Boarding ridden by Freddie Tylicki.
 
Along with the excitement of the most awaited horseracing trial, the spectators at Chantilly had the opportunity to discover the Official Watch: The Longines Master Collection. Three centuries of watchmaking expertise stand behind this collection. Its timepieces are notable as much for their intrinsic quality as for their style made up of balanced designs. The Longines Master Collection watch features a refined silvered dial with a chronograph and moonphase display, as well as a stainless steel case with a transparent case back that reveals a self-winding mechanical movement.
 
For the sixth time, Longines offered its timekeeping expertise to the races held during the week-end of 1-2 October. This week-end was filled with tradition, elegance and performance, values that are shared by both these high-level races and the Swiss watch brand. Besides, this unique horseracing event earned its worldwide reputation receiving the prestigious Longines World’s Best Horse Race award, which was presented for the first time by the IFHA and Longines in January 2016.
 
In the context of its partnership with France Galop, the Longines is the Official Timekeeper of the racecourses of Chantilly, Deauville and Longchamp, as well as the Title Partner of the Prix de Diane Longines. The brand is also the Partner of the Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club.
