Longines: Legendary models since 1832
Florian Morel, Henri Raigul and Auguste Agassiz were the founders of the brand Longines. Agassiz was the watchmaker while the others were retailers who sold the models at exhibitions in Europa and earned a good reputation. In 1862, Ernest Francillon took over and bought premises outside of Saint-Imier where he built his manufactory. Already in 1889, the watches were as good that Longines felt itself forced to have the name protected at the Federal Office for Intellectual Property to prevent that imitations flood the market. This makes the label the oldest protected watch brand in the world. Many legendary models come from the manufactory such as the thinnest electromagnetic movement worldwide. Particularly famous is the Lindbergh-hour angle watch where the famous pilot himself had been involved in development.
Take your time for Longines
When you have such a large selection of different models you really can rummage according to desire and mood. Steel, partly gold-plated and leather are also with Longines the classics for wristbands. The cases are mainly made of steel, more rarely of gold. You have the choice between classic round dials, oval, rectangular or square models. Also the colours range from classic black and white to trendy colours like pink or light blue. They have particularly striking bezels with sports watches that can also partly provide a watertightness of several hundred meters. But that's not all, the Longines for women and men also offer weekday displays, second time zones, luminous indices and more. It pays off to take a closer look at the sporty and elegant, good-priced models.
