: Quite cool, actually!
: “We had designed the case for the “Kentucky” in the form of a
: horseshoe so the model would appeal to another client segment we
: were targeting, the horsey set, and its name was obviously
: chosen to conjure up thoughts of the annual Kentucky Derby.
: Personally I think this case was one of the nicest models we
: ever designed for a chronograph.”
