Founded in 1832 at Saint-Imier in Switzerland, the Compagnie des Montres Longines Francillon S.A. is the oldest trademark still in use in its original form registered with the World Intellectual Property Organization.
In the founding year 1832, Longines produced timepieces under the ‘établissage’ system, whereby watchmakers worked at home and supplied their products to the trading offices, which were run by the founders – Auguste Agassiz and Ernest Francillon.
Longines developed its first chronograph in 1878. It was quickly adopted by horse enthusiasts. In 1912, Longines helped shape the history of the sporting world by introducing the first timing mechanism automatically triggered by an electric wire.
