The success was extraordinary as the demand for high-quality Longines watches grew so rapidly that Francillon was soon forced to defend himself against counterfeiting. In 1889, Francillon had registered the Longines brand at the Federal Office for Intellectual Property. As a result, Longines became the first registered watch brand in the world. The famous Longines motif with the winged hourglass remains a strong brand logo to this day.
In 1954, Longines developed the first quartz clock, which was distinguished by outstanding accuracy and received several Observatory prizes. From this moment onward, Longines presented both mechanical and electronic timepieces, which is a feature that still distinguishes the current collection from Longines. In addition to traditional automatic and manual wind watches, Longines also manufactures sports quartz watches and, therefore, provides a diverse range of products for a diverse range of clients.
Longines began in Saint-Imier, Switzerland, in 1832 with a commitment to excellence and remains dedicated to performance, tradition, and elegance. Founder Auguste Agassiz began producing watches through établissage, where craftsmen worked at home and then sold their products to local shops. His experience eventually established a network of contacts, allowing him to sell his watches around the world. His nephew Ernest Francillon took over in the 1850s, and by 1911 Longines had expanded to employ over 1,100 people.
Our Longines watches offer several movement styles, including quartz, automatic, and manual winding. Strap material designs include stainless steel, rubber, alligator, leather, and more, with case materials ranging from ceramic and titanium to gold, stainless steel, and PVD. Longines watches are made to blend in and stand out, a unique combination that allows your watch to be the center of attention or a useful accessory. 781b155fdc
