Longines’ passion for equestrian sport dates back to 1878, when it produced a chronograph engraved with a jockey and his mount. Seen on the American racetracks as early as 1881 and extremely popular among jockeys and horse-lovers, this model enabled its user to time performances to the seconds. Today Longines continues this rich tradition as the Official Timekeeper and Watch of the Longines Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby.
