The famous Swiss watch brand LONGINES has become the official partner and the official timekeeper of the Hong Kong Longines International Jockey Championship for the second consecutive year. Longines’ passion for equestrian sports dates back to 1878, when a chronograph was engraved with the image of the jockey and his mount. This pocket watch appeared on the racetrack as early as 1881, and is highly sought after by jockeys and equestrian enthusiasts. The wearer can accurately record the time to the second. This model is widely used by the New York Games referee. Today, LONGINES has been involved in different national borders and types of horse racing, including flat, obstacle and endurance.
