Serving as its official timekeeper, Longines timed the races of Saturday’s Dubai World Cup. The nine-race circuit served as the official end of the 2016 Dubai International flat-racing season, which brought together the world’s best jockeys and horses.
On Saturday, the festivities finished with the Dubai World Cup race, which was won by Victor Espinoza on California Chrome, while the other highlight of the day, the Dubai Sheema Classic presented by Longines, saw the victory of Andrea Atzeni on Postponed. The winning jockeys, trainers and owners of these two important races received Longines watches.
The official watch of the event was a model from the Logines Master Collection. The men’s chronograph features a refined silvered stamped barleycorn dial with a moonphase display. The transparent case back of its stainless steel case reveals the self-winding mechanical movement.
