As summer breezes and longer days invite us to venture outdoors, it’s the perfect time to embrace an active lifestyle while staying stylish. And when it comes to timepieces that effortlessly blend form and function, Longines stands out as a true master.
In this blog, we invite you to join us on a journey to explore Longines’ connection to the sporting world and discover their incredible collection of athletic watches.
History Behind Longies Watches
Longines is an esteemed Swiss luxury watch company with a long and rich history dating back to 1832. The company was founded by Auguste Agassiz, who had a passion for horology and eventually opened his workshop in Saint-Imier, Switzerland. Agassiz named the company Longines after the vast meadows that surrounded his workshop.
Longines gained recognition for its precision timekeeping early on. In 1878, the company developed its first chronograph movement, the 20H. This “mono-pusher” chronograph was a groundbreaking development that allowed for all three chronograph functions (start, stop, and reset) to be controlled through the crown.
Throughout its history, Longines has secured partnerships with various sports organisations worldwide, such as the Commonwealth Games, leading to a demand for their timepieces and timekeeping expertise. The company has been the official timekeeper for numerous world championships and has collaborated with prominent sporting events such as Wimbledon, the French Open, and the Australian Open.
In 1983, Longines became a Swatch Group member, allowing them to innovate and develop new technologies while remaining true to their roots in traditional Swiss watchmaking.
Longines is a brand that has stood the test of time, and its watches are a symbol of luxury, precision, and elegance, which is evident in the Longines sports collection.
