Longines Secretariat Edition Chronograph

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Secretariat’s Kentucky Derby triumph, Longines, the official timekeeper for the prestigious race, has designed a limited edition wristwatch, part of its distinguished Master Collection Chronograph Series. Longines’ latest offering pays tribute to Secretariat’s record-breaking victory in the first jewel of the Triple Crown.

This elegant and incredibly rare timepiece is limited to only 73 pieces in the total edition. Each watch uniquely features the subtle “1A” on its distinctive blue-rimmed front dial — a charming and historical reference to Secretariat’s entry number in the 1973 Kentucky Derby as well as the famed Meadow Stable in whose blue and white colors he ran. The clear glass underside of the watch revealing its inner movement and precision mechanism is adorned with the Secretariat 50th Anniversary insignia and Longines Master Collection designation.

The Longines Secretariat Edition Chronograph debuted on April 20th in conjunction with the Kentucky Derby Museum’s opening reception for its new exhibition entitled  “Secretariat: America’s Horse.” Its highly anticipated release was a smashing success with the complete edition immediately selling out at its original retail release price of $3400. With the immense interest in this 50th Anniversary offering and its subsequent swift sell-out, the edition’s inherent collectibility and value on the secondary market has dramatically increased, making it one of the most sought-after pieces in Longines’ rich and storied history.

We are proud to announce that one of these special pieces has been retained in the Secretariat Archives to be offered for auction in the near future. Stay tuned for more information about the time, date and additional details regarding the auction of one of these most treasured timepieces.
