Born of the grand tradition of watchmaking, Longines is steeped in history. A history marked by technical and aesthetic innovations in line with the founders’ ambitions: capture the spirit of the time, be at the cutting edge without being defined by the vagaries of fashion, and achieve excellence without abandoning simplicity. These aspirations are still intact today and can be seen in the various collections of the “Watchmaking Tradition” segment.
THE LONGINES MASTER COLLECTION
As a traditional watchmaking company, Longines has been producing exceptional timepieces since the very beginning. Today, the Longines Master Collection is the perfect illustration of this corporate ethos, as can be seen from the success enjoyed by this range since it was launched in 2005.
In Longines’ purest watchmaking tradition, the Record automatic models combine classic elegance and excellence, aspiring to become the spearheads of the brand. And there is no shortage of arguments for these exceptional timepieces, whose movement includes a single-crystal silicon balance spring with unique properties.
Longines combines the original aesthetics of its most remarkable historic models with the most modern watchmaking techniques. Heritage Classic pieces are a tribute to the innovative spirit that has driven Longines’ watchmakers from the outset. Longines timepieces draw from this expertise and illustrate the durability that is the brand’s signature, as well a consistent desire to honor history.
The launch of the first Flagship by Longines in 1957 was met with resounding success. Today, this timeless collection can still be found in the brand's range of products in a reworked form. Each fitted with a self-winding calibre, these models will enchant lovers of classic, robust watches. A wide range of dials and a selection of sizes mean that everyone can find the watch that suits him or her.
