Brief history of Longines
Auguste Agassiz started making watches in St Imier in Switzerland in 1832, shortly thereafter establishing the firm Agassiz & compagnie. Ernest Francillon, Agassiz's nephew (by marriage), entered the firm, becoming responsible for running the company in the mid-1850s. Ernest (whose descendent, Ward Francillon, became a president of the NAWCC) purchased land and built a factory near St Imier in an area known as "Les Longines" in 1866, thus establishing Longines.
Within a decade, the concept of conducting all of the operations of finishing watches in one plant, using the machine methods developed in the United States, as opposed to the traditional method of passing the movement from shop to shop for each craftsman to perform his specialty task, was proven successful. In 1889, the winged hour glass trade mark, denoting high grade watches, was registered with the Swiss Patents Office. Over 1,100 people were employed at the Longines factory by 1911.
Longines, now a member of The Swatch Group S.A., is still marketing watches worldwide today.
