This year, we joined Best Longines Conquest Classic Chronograph Watch Replica in Baltimore for the running of the Preakness, the second stop in the Triple Crown races, and were lent this year’s version of the Jockey’s timepiece, a Longines Conquest Classic Chronograph.
Longines continued their long support of professional equestrian sport as the official timekeeper for the Triple Crown. And while California Chrome offered up a disappointing show at the Belmont Stakes, Longines Conquest Classic Watch Replica stayed the course, as they have for well over one hundred years.
While the Preakness isn’t quite as refined as the Longines Conquest Watch Replica in regards to the showing off of men’s and women’s style, it is every bit the spectacle, with live music, entertainment, more food and drink than you could possibly imagine, and a small dose of ill-advised racetrack betting just to balance everything out. In short, it was a lot of fun, and many thanks to Longines for having us along again this year.
Last year, we attended the 139th Running of the Kentucky Derby, and were treated to a hands-on review of their Saint Imier Chronograph, the Longines Watch Replica presented to the winning jockeys.
