Swiss watchmaker Longines has welcomed Longines Golden Slipper ambassadors, The Rubens frontman, Sam Margin and his international model wife, Rosie Tupper.

The couple will attend Sydney’s pinnacle racing event, Longines Golden Slipper Day on Saturday 23 March at Rosehill Gardens, where the finest two-year-old thoroughbreds will vie for the coveted title. The Swiss watch brand is proud to mark its six years as the Title Partner, Official Timekeeper and Official Watch of the Longines Golden Slipper Carnival.

Godolphin filly, Tenley, is the favourite to win the coveted Group 1 accolade and the 2018 Longines World’s Best Racehorse, Winx, is expected to take centre stage in the Group 1 The Agency George Ryder Stakes. Off the track, Australian rock legend Jimmy Barnes will headline a live concert after the last race.

“We are delighted to have celebrities like Rosie Tupper and Sam Margin embodying Longines’ long-standing motto “Elegance is an attitude”, as we will celebrate later this year the 20-year milestone of the brand campaign,” said Mr. Walter von Känel, Longines President.

The pair will lead the style stakes by judging the Longines Prize for Elegance, where they will select the most elegant female racegoers of the day, with the winner announced at a special presentation on course. The lucky lady will be awarded a timepiece from the Longines DolceVita Collection. Since its inception, this line has illustrated contemporary elegance of the Longines brand worldwide and is inspired by the “Dolce Vita,” paying homage to the sweetness of life.

“Working in the modelling and fashion industry, I’ve always had a keen eye for style and elegance. I’m looking forward to seeing the ladies expressing themselves in bright colours, whilst also bringing the glamour that Longines Golden Slipper is famous for,” said Longines Golden Slipper Ambassador, Rosie Tupper.

“When Rosie and I started dating, I bought her a vintage Longines watch as a gift – we both have a special connection to Longines,” said Longines Golden Slipper Ambassador and The Rubens lead singer, Sam Margin.

Longines supports horse racing globally and has been associated with equestrian events for a century and a half. These partnerships reflect Longines’ intrinsic values of Tradition, Elegance and Performance.
