About LONGINES

LONGINES is a watch company founded by Ernest Francillon at Saint-Imier, Switzerland. Its origins can be traced back to the 1830s & it currently holds the oldest registered logo for a watch company (a winged hourglass). LONGINES is currently owned by the Swatch Group.

LONGINES is famous for its 'Aviators' watches. One director of LONGINES was a personal friend of Charles Lindbergh ; after his transatlantic flight, Lindbergh designed a pilot watch to help with air navigation. The watch was actually built to his specifications, & is still produced today.

It is said that Albert Einstein used a LONGINES pocket watch. LONGINES watches have been worn by many celebrities, including Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn, Aishwarya Rai, Billy Zane & Harry Connick Jr.

The company's motto is "Elegance is an attitude."

According to the official site, the name derives from the location in which the company's first factory was built: "On the right bank of the Suze river near a place called Les LONGINES (meaning 'long & narrow fields' in the dialectal French of the area)."
