The Swiss watch brand Longines was officially registered in 1893, but its history began long before this event - in 1832, when the founder of the company, Auguste Agassi, arrived in the small Swiss town of Saint-Imier. Having worked for a short time in a watchmaking workshop, he, together with partners, founded his own company - Comptoir Raiguel Jeune & Cie. In 1862, Agassi transferred this business to his nephew Ernest Francillon, who opened the first Longines factory.
In 1867, Longines launched its first movement -the caliber was named L20A. The new watch was awarded a bronze medal at the World Exhibition in Paris. On March 27, 1893, a new Longines trademark was registered and the famous winged hourglass became the brand's emblem. For over two hundred years, Longines has attracted connoisseurs of respectable watchmaking from all over the world, as the brand is renowned for its dedication to the highest quality and adherence to years of tradition.
"Drawing inspiration from the past, we must look ahead!" - this is the motto of the brand, which is also guided by the designers who create sunglasses under the famous Swiss name. Crafted with utmost care, with the scrupulous finishing of every smallest detail the eyewear inherits Longines' values of laconic design, materials of premium class and meticulous workmanship. Sunglasses with the recognizable winged hourglass emblem organically complement the brand's watch collection and at the same time are a self-sufficient representative accessory created for people who know a lot about style, elegance and luxury.
