Longines: The Elegant Watch Brand

One of our best-loved and oldest Swiss watch brands, founded as far back as 1832, Longines embodies the spirit of Swiss watchmaking, with all the craftsmanship and precision one would expect in a Swiss watch, but with a classic and elegant approach to style that has never wavered.

The Spirit Automatic Chronograph watch with the blue dial is a contemporary take on the classic pilot watch, named after the Spirit of St Louis, the monoplane flown by Charles Lindbergh in 1927 on the first solo non-stop transatlantic flight. Lindbergh was arguably Longines' most famous customer, and designed a Longines navigator watch to assist his flying exploits. Longines is now making entirely in-house COSC-certified movements, and the Spirit range has been the first to incorporate them.

Longines is one of the few Swiss watch brands to really invest fully in a range of ladies watches that are not simply men's designs sized down. The Grande Classique with the sunburst grey dial and diamond dots is a particularly elegant piece, and the green Evidenza with its tonneau shaped case is an Art Deco-inspired marvel.

Finally, two automatic watches from the Master Collection range, still with the pilot-styling, but a true vintage look that can be worn all day, every day!
