Longines was formed in 1832, in Saint-Imier (also home to Breitling). Their respect for tradition shows in every aspect of their work, perhaps even down to their winged hourglass logo which was registered in 1889 and is the oldest unchanged but active trademark.
Longines epitomises style and sophistication; Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart and even Albert Einstein have all worn Longines. It’s no surprise that they have gone on to become one of the best
known brands in watchmaking.
The first in-house movement was created all the way back in 1867, the first chronograph arrived in 1878 and that was the basis for supplying timing equipment to may professional sporting events.
