Longines Times California Chrome's Triple Crown run at Belmont Stakes
Longines, the internationally renowned Swiss watch brand and Official Watch and Timekeeper of the Belmont Stakes, will time horse California Chrome’s historic run for the elusive Triple Crown at Belmont Park on Saturday 7 June 2014.
It has been 36 years since Affirmed won the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes the same year to achieve what’s considered the greatest accomplishment of a thoroughbred racehorse: the Triple Crown. As official timekeeper, Longines plays an important role in California Chrome’s attempt at the title. The luxury brand timed California Chrome’s recent wins at the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes and will award the owner, trainer and jockey of the winning horse at Belmont with watches from the brand’s Conquest Classic collection.
