Last week we told you how Longines had teamed up with ambassador of elegance, Kate Winslet, to raise money for The Golden Hat Foundation by auctioning off a very limited series of gold Flagship Heritage watches. On their own, they’re lovely and classic gold watches. But they’re only half the story. The other half of the equation is that as part of the deal you get flown to meet Kate who will personally give you your watch. But wait, there’s more. You and a guest will also get business class flights and five-star accommodation to one of the many sporting events around the globe. All the options are outlined here, but below are our top four picks if you’re looking for a classy getaway.
2017 Longines Hong Kong International
Held on December 10, it’s the richest race in Hong Kong, taking place at the stunning Sha Tin Racecourse
2018 Kentucky Derby
For a longer lead time, you can’t go past the Kentucky Derby, running in May. Plus, this Longines would look just the part with a white suit and mint julep.
2018 Royal Ascot
If elegance is your game, then it’s got to be the oh-so-dressy Royal Ascot. Plus you might get to see the Queen.
2018 Roland-Garros Men’s Final
If horse racing isn’t your bag, don’t worry — you’ve still got options. How about tickets to the Men’s Finals at Roland-Garros? Will Rafa be able to do it again?
And, with just over 48 hours on the clock, things are looking good. Sure, watch #2 is sitting at $94,500 USD, but #3 and #4 are both under $30k. Bargain.
