The Pioneer Spirit Lives On

Longines was founded in 1832 in Saint-Imier, a town in Swiss Jura mountains, where the brand developed, as early as 1878, its first instrument for timing sport events: a chronograph pocket watch with a monopusher crown. The 1880s marked the start of Longines glorious history of sports timing at horse racing events in the United States. By working as a professional timekeeper of sporting events in nearly all disciplines and as a manufacturer of instruments for professionals like pilots, navigators, explorers and sportsmen, Longines was always pushing to improve the accuracy, precision and functionality of its watches. The result was utterly pioneering watchmaking.
