Longines was founded in 1852 by Ernest Francillon in Saint-Imier Switzerland. The brand’s first movement was created in 1867, which was called L20A and allowed for timepieces to be wound and set with the crown instead of the typical key winding movement of the times. For Charles Lindbergh’s first transatlantic flight in 1927, Longinges is credited as the official time keeper of the flight. In 1928, Lingbergh teamed up with the brand again when he designed their hour-angle navigation watch.In 1960, Longines set a record for creating the world’s thinnest electromagnetic watch. The brand became an official partner with Ferrari in 1982 when they joined forces with the brand’s Formula 1 Racing Team. Longines became the official timekeeper, partner, and data handling operator of the International Gymnastics Federation and the European Gymnastics Union. Longines is credited with having the longest registered brand logo for a watch company, which is the winged hour glass.
