Thoroughbred Style

It’s a week away from the Belmont Stakes and there’s much speculation if California Chrome will take Horse Racing’s Triple Crown this year. The thoroughbred racehorse has already won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness and could be the first horse to win the Triple Crown since 1978, when Affirmed took the coveted prize.

In the past decade, seven horses: Silver Charm, Real Quiet, Charismatic, War Emblem, Smarty Jones, Big Brown and I’ll Have Another have all won both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, but came up short in the Belmont Stakes.

Precision up-to-the-second time-keeping is vital in the world of horse racing and many well-known watch brands sponsor horse-racing events around the world. Rolex, Audemars Piguet and Longines are among the popular watch sponsors.L25010836

Longines in fact is the Official Timekeeper of the Kentucky Derby. The prominent Swiss brand is also the Official Watch and Official Timekeeper of the renowned Royal Ascot Race Course, in Ascot, England where the illustrious Royal Meeting and Gold Cup Races take place every summer, usually attended by members of the Royal Family.

The brand’s equestrian heritage dates back to 1878, when it produced a chronograph pocket watch engraved with a jockey and his mount. The timepiece was widely used at racetracks and was popular with jockeys and horse lovers, since it enabled them to time performances in seconds.

Longines offers many prestigious wristwatches for men and women available at luxury retailer The Watchery. The Belle Arti Women’s Diamond wristwatch is an absolute stunner. This dazzling timepiece features an elongated, rectangular shaped case with contoured lugs in lustrous stainless steel. The highly polished multi-link stainles steel bracelet adds to the sophisticated appeal.

Forty-two shimmering diamonds, pave-set to perfection adorn the sides of the bezel. The luminous Mother-of-Pearl dial shines with blue sword hands and black Arabic hour markers. A window above the 6 o’clock hour reveals the small-seconds subdial.

Premium Swiss-made quartz movement inside assures you of time-keeping accuracy. Timepiece is 25mm wide, 7mm thick and is water-resistant to 30 meters.

Are You Ready To Go Automatic?

Nothing says time-honored elegance and premium-crafted precision more than an automatic wristwatch. Self-winding automatic timepieces are among the most coveted styles for men and women in the world today. A true automatic or self-winding watch features a built-in mainspring mechanism that winds automatically from the natural motion of a user’s arm and provides sufficient energy to run the watch and avoid manual winding.

Abraham Louis Perrelet invented the first automatic timepiece in 1770 with a pocket watch designed to operate when the watch wearer started walking, using an oscillating weight that moved up and down. The self-winding mechanism Perrelet created was revolutionary, since mechanical watches used prior to this period required manual winding.INVICTA-12720

Outstanding automatic wristwatches from Perrelet, Maurice Lacroix, TAG Heuer, Lucien Piccard, Invicta, Tissot, Chopard, Swiss Legend, Raymond Weil, Rado, Oris, IWC, MOMO Design, red line and Seiko are showcased this week at luxury retailer The Watchery during their Automatic Watch Event.
