That connection is alive and well today, and in addition to providing sponsorship and official timekeeping for the Triple Crown, Replica Longines uk also supplies chronographs as prizes to the winners of the race series.
These pieces come from their Saint-Imier Collection, and include a pink gold Version for Owners, and a steel version for Jockeys. The piece we selected for this review is the steel Jockey’s version.
