'Watch’ out, Ash is here!'
For the third consecutive year, Longines is the official timekeeper for the races at Royal Ascot.
The Swiss watchmaker, with its well-known slogan ‘Elegance is an attitude’, was also a partner in the fashion show that was held during the Royal Ascot week this year.
And it was none other than the Longines Ambassador of Elegance for the past ten years, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who lit up the event with her presence. In between interviews and photo sessions, Ash managed to find time to admire the creations modelled in the fashion show and to watch some racing in the afternoon.
“Royal Ascot is absolutely unique, an elegant, quintessentially British occasion. I am very happy to have been invited here by Longines,” Ash smiled. During the gala dinner in the evening, she revealed to Longines’ guests and the press three new ladies’ models from the Longines Master Collection. The three steel timepieces are fitted with self-winding, mechanical movements. One has a jet black dial and shows the phases of the moon, while the other two have elegantly sleek white mother-of-pearl dials. A galaxy of diamonds decorates the bases of two of the three models. The watches are mounted on leather straps to match the dials. Aishwarya herself had some trouble choosing her favourite!
