On Saturday 11 April 2015, the impressive crowd that came to the racecourse of Royal Randwick witnessed the amazing victory of Craig Williams on Criterion at the 2015 edition of the Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes, the richest weight for age race over 2000m on turf in the world. The Swiss watch brand Longines is proud to be the Title Partner of the Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes, as well as the Official Timekeeper and Watch of the racecourse of Royal Randwick, and the Official Timekeeper and Watch of the Australian Turf Club. The winning owner, trainer and jockey were presented with elegant Longines watches from the hands of Mr. Juan-Carlos Capelli, Vice President of Longines and Head of International Marketing, and Chi Ling Lin, Longines Ambassador of Elegance. In addition, Mrs. Latoyah Asha won the Longines Award for Elegance. She received a beautiful Longines watch echoing the refinement of this great raceday as well as her highly distinguished outfit. The Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes Raceday was the perfect occasion to discover Conquest Classic, a collection of elegant Longines timepieces with self-winding mechanical calibres. Reflecting at the same time the brand’s passion for equestrian sports and the importance it attaches to its watchmaking tradition, the Official Watch of the event was a Conquest Classic Monnphase chronograph in steel and rose gold that displays a silvered dial as well as the moonphase indication. The transparent case back enables its user to admire the scintillating movement of the watch. This weekend was also marked by a world premiere. Indeed, during a press conference held in the Longines Owners Pavilion at Royal Randwick Racecourse on Friday 10 April 2015, the Swiss watch brand presented the Longines Positioning System (LPS), a game-changing development for timekeeping and tracking technology in thoroughbred racing. Used for the first time during the Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes Raceday, it inaugurates totally new data-handling dimensions and deepens the understanding of the races. Longines has an illustrious history in equestrian timekeeping dating back to 1878. The innovative new LPS incorporates a permanent or portable, easily deployable system that sets a new standard for accurate, reliable and repeatable timekeeping and tracking results that provide huge benefit to both the thoroughbred industry and enthusiasts. Longines also confirmed that it has also become the Official Partner, Official Timekeeper and Official Watch for Rosehill Gardens, specifically for the prominent Longines Golden Slipper Carnival from 2016.
