About Longines Watches
Longines is one of the world’s most respected and best-selling watch brands, offering a wide variety of well-priced premium Swiss watches for men and women. With almost two centuries of history behind it, Longines watches continue the spirit of elegance, precision, and performance — which have been paramount to the brand since its founding.
The Longines watch collection is home to plenty of different styles, ranging from elegant dress watches and casual everyday timepieces to robust diving watches and vintage-inspired pilot watches.
Longines Watch History
Longines traces its history back to 1832 when Auguste Agassiz established a watchmaking workshop in Saint-Imier, Switzerland. Longines officially trademarked its now-famous winged hourglass logo in 1889, which is the oldest trademark that remains in its original form.
The brand has had a long and illustrious history making instruments for timing sporting events, starting with a monopusher chronograph pocket watch in 1878. Longines continued to produce pioneering timepieces, not only for sports but also for navigation, aviation, and exploration. For instance, Longines was responsible for the world’s first wrist chronograph in 1913, the world’s first flyback chronograph in 1936, and one of the world’s first quartz wristwatches in 1969.
Longines continued to expand its offering over the following decades and grew to become a globally renowned Swiss watch brand. Today, Longines is recognized for making reasonably priced well-designed watches.
