Longines Launches Mini Dolce Vita to Honor Kentucky Derby, Kentucky Oaks

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks, Longines, Official Partner, Official Timekeeper and Official Watch of the event since 2011, presents a new Mini Dolce Vita model in a limited edition of 150 pieces. This elegant timepiece, set with diamonds, comes with a new double strap in pink nappa leather – the color of the Kentucky Oaks – in support of women’s health. In a subtle nod to the equestrian world that has been so dear to Longines since 1869, the holes in the strap are numbered from 1 to 6 in hot print, just like the stirrup leathers that connect the saddle to the horse’s stirrups.

Presented in a rectangular stainless steel case measuring 21.50 mm x 29.00 mm and set with 38 Top Wesselton diamonds, the Mini Dolce Vita is equipped with a high-precision L178 quartz movement and is water-resistant to 3 bar (30 meters). This special series features a Cosmo dial composed of sandblasted silvered and matte white discs. The Roman numerals, rose gold hands and black lacquered indexes provide an elegant contrast.

Pricing is marked at $3,900. The watch will be available at www.longines.com as well as on site at The Kentucky Derby, which will take place on May 4th.
