La Compagnie des Montres Longines, Francillon S.A. grants you, with effect from the purchase date, a twenty-four (24) month warranty on all Longines ® watches models and a five (5) year warranty on the automatic watches purchased from January 1, 2021, under the terms set out in this warranty.

The Longines international warranty covers defects in materials and manufacturing that exist at the time of delivery of the Longines watch purchased (“defects”). The warranty takes effect only if the warranty certificate has been dated and fully completed by an official Longines dealer (“valid warranty certificate”).

In the event that repairs cannot restore your Longines watch to full working order, La Compagnie des Montres Longines, Francillon S.A. undertakes to replace it with an identical Longines watch or another Longines watch with similar characteristics.

The warranty for the replacement watch expires on the same date as the warranty for the replaced watch.
