Located in Saint-Imier since 1832, Longines has established close links with the village that has seen the foundation and development of the firm. As the only watchmaking company that was set up and still remains in Saint-Imier, Longines has stayed true to its historical values: tradition, elegance and sport. This long relationship has been sealed by a collection of exceptional timepieces all fitted with mechanical movements: The Longines Saint-Imier Collection. The shape of the case -- inspired by a model dating from 1945 -- is a common theme throughout the collection. The sleek lines and the distinctive lugs provide these new models with a subtle balance between classical and contemporary design.
