Longines

Founded in 1832 by Auguste Agassiz, in St. Imier, Switzerland, this was primarily an “assembler” of watches.
Many of the company’s craftsmen worked out of their homes.

For almost 20 years this method of business worked well and was quite profitable. In 1854, Agassiz was in poor health. He handed the business responsibilities to his nephew, Ernest Francillon, who built a factory nearby in the town of Les Longines and re-branded the line under the Longines name.

The company was best known for their chronographs and aviator watches. In the 1950s, Longines purchased another watch company, Wittnauer. The company continued to market both brand names in the United States.
