Longines is one of the legendary brands that continue to amaze the industry by its innovations. In 1867, this Swiss watch manufacturer produced its first in-house watch movement 20A Caliber. The 20A movement was created with an anchor escapement that had been used in some pendulum clocks. This caliber was wound through a pendant crown. The innovative movement of the brand received overwhelming responses in the industry and was awarded at the Paris universal exhibition in 1867.
In 1889 the company registered its famous winged hourglass logo. It has remained the oldest registered trademark to this day. The Swiss watchmaker has managed to continue manufacturing high-quality watches and made itself one of the most trusted watch brands in the world as we have known at the present day.

Dial and Bracelet
One main attractiveness of the collection should be its straps.
