Introduced in 1957, the Longines Flagship represented a fresh new vision for watches in the brave new post-war era. These unique timepieces were designed with equally distinctive names for the first time, solidifying the idea of a watch "family" among consumers and serving as the keystone for Longines' advertising. Of course, advertising strategies weren't the only exciting thing about this era.
Longines Flagship is seen as one of the most beautiful dress watch design ever created when it comes to classic 50s chic, expressing the quintessential fashion of such an unforgettable decade.

Founded in 1832 at Saint-Imier in Switzerland, Longines is the oldest trademark still in use in its original form registered with the World Intellectual Property Organization.
Over the years, Longines has played a pioneering role in many timekeeping technological breakthroughs.
In 1912, Longines helped shape the history of the sporting world by introducing the first timing mechanism automatically triggered by an electric wire. Since then, the brand has been designated as the official partner and timekeeper of international federations and prestigious sporting events throughout the world. Longines has also marked the history of aviation by timing, among other feats, the first non-stop solo flight across the Atlantic by Charles Lindbergh.
Today, the brand remains at the cutting edge of innovation and seeks to ensure that all its watches offer a unique combination of tradition, elegance, and performance.
