In 2018, the Naive New Beaters were ready to electrify spectators with tracks from their third album, “A la folie”.


“We wanted there to be more piano than before, vintage synthesisers and scratchy guitars, and a thumping bass to get hips swaying and get the ladies dancing,” explained the trio, made up of Californian vocalist David Boring, ‘machine man with a heart’ Eurobelix, and pasteurised guitar hero Martin Luther B.B King.


Their third album, “A la folie”, sounds like the sum of their multi-talented musical personalities. The album took you to a far-off place, where you lost yourself in its wild sound!

Zhao Liyng: Longines Ambassador of Elegance

The highlight of the day is the Prix de Diane Longines, whose winning owner, trainer and jockey will all be awarded an elegant Longines watch by the brand’s Ambassador of Elegance, Chinese actress Zhao Liyng.


She will also present the Record collection’s newest model to the winner of the “Mademoiselle Diane par Longines” elegance contest. This timepiece, which can also be admired on the wrists of the elegance contest’s ten finalists, is the Official Event Watch and boasts a white pearl dial decorated with 13 diamond indexes and a steel case set with diamonds.

2 The official watch


THE RECORD COLLECTION

The official Prix de Diane Longines watch


montre.jpg


This timepiece’s destiny seems to be all planned out. With their new Record collection, Longines are expressing the brand’s very essence: timeless elegance and excellence. 


Aspiring to be the brand’s spearheads, the watches in this collection provide a link between tradition and innovation. This resolutely classic collection speaks for itself, a loyal representation of Longines’ watchmaking expertise.  


Behind this bold profile lies an unusual spiral-shaped heart, the regulating organ of the watch. 


Coupled with a balancing spring, it oscillates to perform its essential role: setting the tempo with extreme consistency, though magnetism, temperature variations and use (several hundred thousand “breaths” per year) all try to hinder its smooth-running. 


To increase its precision and longevity, Longines have chosen to include a single-crystal silicon balance spring in its movement, a resistant, lightweight, stainless material that is not affected by normal temperature changes, magnetic fields or atmospheric pressure. 


A high-tech heart, fitted inside a watch made according to the purest watchmaking tradition!


Such excellence deserves recognition. 

Thanks to their extremely high precision, all of the models in the Record collection have been certified as “chronometers” by the COSC (Official Chromometer Testing Institute)


Equipped with automatic calibres, each and every one of these pieces is checked by this neutral and independent organisation before they can have the “CHRONOMETER” certification engraved on their dial. Boasting a very high added value, these “chronometers” are truly exceptional timepieces.

CHANTILLY RACECOURSE


THE WORLD’S LARGEST TRAINING GROUND FOR THOROUGHBRED IS IN FRANCE


Chantilly’s training centre, which is managed by France Galop and located just a few miles outside of Paris, is the only centre of its kind in the world. Bright and early every morning, more than 2,500 racehorses head out to train on the centre’s 2,000 hectares of gallops. 


This magnificent sight is orchestrated by 110 trainers and 1,000 exercise riders.

THE CHARMS OF THE CHANTILLY ESTATE

Less than an hour’s drive outside of Paris, the Chantilly Estate houses treasures that have been passed down its line of illustrious owners: Anne, Duke of Montmorency, the Bourbon-Condé lineage, Henri d’Orléans, Duke of Aumale. The château is home to the Condé Museum and its collection of paintings, among which are masterpieces by Raphaël, Botticelli, Clouet, Poussin, Watteau, Ingres, Delacroix. Inside the château, the Cabinet des Livres library boasts 13,000 books, including the world’s most precious manuscript: Les Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry (15th century)!

The estate’s 115 hectares of grounds are unique thanks to the hugely diverse gardens. The Grandes Écuries, a masterpiece of 18th century architecture, are among the most luxurious stables in the world. Inside, the Horse Museum gives an insight into the relationship between man and horse, while the team of 20 horses and 7 riders give performances all year round.
