The Watch

Longines was founded in 1832 by Auguste Agassiz and is considered to be the oldest registered watch brand. The Longines factory was opened in 1867 in Saint-Imier Switzerland. From this date, the name Longines was present on their dials and the winged hourglass was engraved onto their movements. After visiting the Universal Exhibition of 1876 in the United States, Longines became pioneers in mechanised production. In 1880 the brand name was filed with the Federal Office of Intellectual Property; later their logo was registered in 1889. Their first wristwatch with a single pusher the calibre 13.33z was introduced in 1913. They became the official supplier for the International Aeronautical Federation in 1919. Lindbergh, the aviator, and adventurer, worked with Longines to create the Hour Angle watch in 1927. Their first self-winding calibre 22A was produced in 1945. With continued innovation and technical achievements, Longines became the official timekeeper for Formula one in 1983 for 10 years. They also became the official timekeeper for the French Open at Roland Garros in 2009. Purchased in 1971 by ‚ÄėEbauches SA‚Äô, Swiss watchmakers SSIH who owned Omega, Tissot, and Lemania, and ASUAG who owned Certina, Endura, Eterna, Hamilton, Longines, Mido, and Rado. were merged in 1983 to become the Swatch Group in 1998.

Here we have a 2011 Longines Master Collection Chronograph L2.629.4.51.5 with a 39.5mm stainless steel case. The case gently curves over your wrist with a lug to lug length of 46mm and a case thickness of 11.5mm ensuring a comfortable fit. Down the right side, we have chronograph pushers and a signed crown in the centre. The smooth bezel holds a domed sapphire crystal above a black guilloché textured dial. An outer minute chapter ring is precisely printed. Attractive Roman numeral indices mark the hours. At 6 o’clock a framed date window. The bi-compax is made up of 3 o’clock the small second register and at 9 o’clock a 30-minutes register. The dial is perfectly balanced. Elegant leaf hands with a tapered chronograph hand complete this sophisticated chronograph. On the reverse, a screw-down exhibition case back. Inside an automatic Longines Cal. L651.3, 37 jewels, 28,800 beats per hour. The movement has a base of the ETA 2894-2. The watch comes fitted on its Longines 21mm leather strap with a signed buckle.

Personal Note

Longines has been onto a real hit with their Master Collection for many years, producing watches that punch way above their retail price tag, so when they become pre-owned the value becomes even more undeniable. Plus, you get a Longines on your wrist, that's nothing to scoff at!
