The seeds of the company that would one day be counted among the leading wristwatch manufacturers in history were sown in 1832 by Auguste Agassiz. Originally a partnership with a watch workshop, the brand was then called 'Agassiz and Compagnie.' Over thirty years later, in 1866, Agassiz’s nephew, Ernest Francillon, took over the torch and moved the business in an old amalgam mill in a place called Les Longines, from where the company derived its current name.
Longines has shared an amiable history with expeditions and sporting events. It fashioned timepieces for the first modern Olympics of 1896. Three years later, in 1899, Arctic explorer Luigi Amedeo took a Longines timepiece to the North Pole. The brand was the official timekeeper for the Federal Gymnastics in 1912. The brand was also the official timekeeper for Tours de France 31 times.
While the brand is highly renowned for its sports watches and chronographs, its Heritage collection encompasses the spirit of tradition and the craftsmanship of modern, cutting edge technology. The most coveted and prized item in this collection is the Lindbergh Hour Angle – a device that replicates the functionality of the memorable timepiece engineered by Charles Lindbergh in the 1930s.
