Freak Deluxe is going to Royal Ascot for the second time in two years! This year, it’s 300th year, we’re being taken by prestigious luxury watch brand Longines, who is also the Official Timekeeper of the flat race season at Ascot, including Royal Ascot. AND you could win a chance to go too!!!
The luxury watchmaker will continue its role as the Official Timekeeper of the flat race season at Ascot, including Royal Ascot, ensuring technological precision and elegance synonymous with both brands. Longines has built a world-wide tradition of excellence and elegance since 1832, and has grown its association with prestigious racing events around the world sponsoring the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs, Prix de Diane Longines at Chantilly, Dubai World Cup, Melbourne Cup Carnival and the Longines Singapore Gold Cup.
Experts in sports timekeeping since 1878 and long term experience in equestrian sport across the globe, it was a natural choice when Ascot decided to revolutionise the timing system at the racecourse in 2007 to work closely with the watchmaker.
In a year when Ascot is celebrating its tercentenary, Longines also co-sponsor the Royal Ascot Fashion Show, with both events embodying perfectly the brand’s key value, elegance.
Mr von Känel, President of Longines, says: “There is no other comparable event in the racing world to the Royal Meeting. Moreover, Ascot – and even more specifically, Royal Ascot – perfectly suits Longines’ identity expressed through its slogan: ‘Elegance is an attitude’.”
This year the brand will welcome Longines Ambassador of elegance Aaron Kwok to Royal Ascot on Tuesday 14th June, one of the most popular artist’s in Asia today: dancer, singer and actor, his outstanding performances on stage have earned him the nickname “the Michael Jackson of Hong Kong”.
