Watches of Switzerland – the official time partner of Glorious Goodwood race meeting

Watches of Switzerland has become the official time partner of Glorious Goodwood race, the highlight of the summer sporting and social calendar.

Five days of racing culminate on Saturday 4 August with the traditional cavalry charge, now known as the Blue Square Stewards Cup, a 28-horse sprint won last year by Hoof It, ridden by Kieren Fallon.

Attracting some of the finest racing talent from around the world, Glorious Goodwood is also one of the most important gatherings on the social calendar, as renowned for serving Veuve Clicquot champagne and strawberries as it is for serving up high-stakes race action.

“This is a very exciting partnership for Watches of Switzerland and we are delighted to be the official time keeper at Glorious Goodwood,” explained Ruth Benford, marketing director of Watches of Switzerland.

“Both Goodwood and Watches of Switzerland have a prestigious brand appeal and this partnership will further strengthen the exposure of the Watches of Switzerland brand”.

Watches of Switzerland have been established since 1924. The company is part of the AURUM group – the largest prestige and luxury jewellers in the UK which also includes Mappin & Webb and Goldsmiths within its portfolio.

The group is proud to be the largest distributor in the world of luxury brands such as Omega, Tag Heuer and Gucci. It is also the UK’s largest distributor for Rolex, Cartier and Breitling.
