Longines Legacy

Post by Ocean on 2012-08-14, 09:25

Good Article from Iw magazine. The rest at http://iwmagazine.com/2012/08/13/the-longines-legacy/ .

Among the museums, manufactures and historic landmarks that dot the villages of the Swiss Jura Mountains, the heart of the country’s watchmaking district, the Longines Museum at Saint-Imier is a standout. Located in a wing of the brand’s manufacture, one of the first to be established in the region, the museum traces the history of Longines from 1832, and in so doing, comprises one of the most comprehensive histories of Swiss watchmaking.

Longines celebrates that heritage this year, on its 180th anniversary, with the Saint Imier Collection of mechanical timepieces, a tribute to the town where it all started. Inspired by models produced during the brand’s history, the collection includes a chronograph and a prestige model featuring four retrograde functions, containing the caliber L707 movement developed and made by ETA exclusively for Longines. It also has day/night and moonphase indications.
