What does Longines mean?
The term Longines comes from the term the longines, meaning long meadow, elongated fields. When it comes to the origins of the brand, we could think from 1880, when the brand was registered in the Federal Office of Intellectual Property or even in 1889, when the logo was registered, the classic sandwatch with wings with equestrian inspiration. 1893? Registered in the international office, being the oldest brand with registered activity.
If we want to be precise, it starts in 1832.
3 partners, August Agassiz and two others founded their watchmaking agency in Saint-Imier, pocket watches being their speciality. Later, it was Ernest Francillon who was the driving force behind the company.
In this pre-World War I year, Longines developed its first monopusher wrist chronograph caliber, the 13.33Z. An excellent movement of high quality, 29.00 mm in diameter, it is equipped with a 30-minute counter and measures the time with great precision.
Elegance is an attitude is the brand’s slogan and one of its core values. This was the inspiration for the Elegant collection, which perfectly represents the classicism and sobriety inherent to the watch brand itself. Each model in this collection represents its own definition of elegance.
A few years ago they unveiled a revolutionary development in timing. The Longines Positioning System, which provides instant data on the exact position of the horses during the races as well as their ranking.
