With an expertise in watchmaking dating back to 1832, Longines' devotion to tradition, elegance, craftsmanship, and commitment to the sporting world has led to its sponsoring of some of the most prestigious sporting events in the world. Longines are a renowned designer watch brand which produces superior quality timepieces for both ladies and gents. If you are looking for effortless elegance, this is the perfect brand for you.
The story of Longines dates back to 1832 when a young Swiss watchmaker named Auguste Agassiz began producing timepieces in Saint-Imier, a small town in the Swiss Jura region. With a long list of accomplishments under its belt, including the world's first watch with an overall thickness of less than 2mm; the Feuille d'Or, Longines became of the most respected global watch brands.
Longines also became one of the first companies to produce watches designed for aviation, with its timepieces used by pilots and navigators on some of the earliest flights. Charles Lindbergh, Roald Amundsen, and Amelia Earhart put their trust, and to some extent, their lives in Longines’s hands.
Today, it is the leader in sports timing, with a constant presence within the world of sports, including the Kentucky Derby and other high-profile events each year, including competitions in equestrianism, racing, and alpine skiing.
For Longines enthusiasts, elegance is not just in style, it is an expression of personality. This message is also expressed through the brand ambassadors from the world of show business, such as Kate Winslet, Jennifer Lawrence, and Regé-Jean Page, and from the world of sports, such as Edouard Schmitz and Semmieke Rothenberger, who embody Longines tradition of elegance and watchmaking expertise.
At Lumbers, we do not doubt that you will find the perfect Longines watch for your taste, regardless of whether you are a keen sportsman or simply want to become part of the prestigious Longines family.
