Longines Flagship: sportive-elegant timepieces from tradition-rich company
Among the worldwide renowned manufacturers of Swiss watches, the Compagnie des Montres Longines, Francillon S.A. established in Saint-Imier in 1832 has a very special position. Even though there are several other Swiss watch manufactories that can look back to a longer history, the brand with the winged hourglass which today belongs to the Swatch Group is still the oldest registered watch brand in the world. The name and the logo of the company founded by Auguste Agassiz, Florian Morel and Henri Raiguel has been registered and protected as a brand since 1889 in Switzerland and worldwide since 1893. With its pocket watches, the young company quickly achieved a good reputation. In 1903, the production of mechanical ladies pendant watches started and two years later, the first men's wristwatches followed which nearly completely replaced the pocket watches. The high recognition level of the brand is not at least because of the numerous engagements as official timekeeper at renowned international sport events but also at sensational expeditions such as the historic Atlantic crossing of the American aviation pioneer Charles Lindbergh in 1927. Part of this impressing history is also the Flagship Collection by the company.
Flagship – successful watchmaking art for more than 60 years
Swiss watches by Longines are traditionally characterized by the combination of high material and processing quality, appealing design and a comparatively moderate price level for the luxury segment. Excellent examples for this are the elegant timepieces from the model line Flagship Automatic 35.6 mm. The relatively large case diameter for ladies and the clear, simple layout of the dial ensures good readability. The three-handed watch with center second and date display at the three is powered by a mechanical movement of the caliber L619/888 equipped with an automatic winding. The power reserve is up to 64 hours. Typical ladies watches from the Flagship series are also available with a diameter of 26 mm. The presently larger designs for gentlemen are available with 38.5 mm and are still elegant dress watches. All current versions are in the long tradition of the Flagship models that have already belonged to the product range by Longines since the year 1957 and quickly got positive response on the market. They are mentioned in one breath with the Collections Longines Conquest or DolceVita by enthusiasts.
