1965 Longines Watch Ad "The World's Most Honored Watch"

Founded by Auguste Agassiz in 1832, Longines is a luxury watch house based in Saint-Imier, Switzerland. Its winged hourglass logo is the oldest registered for a watchmaker.

The From 'Lindbergh Aviators' watches to timers used at the first modern day Olympics in 1892,Longines was revolutionary in both design and quality.

In 1899, Longines went to the North Pole with Arctic explorer Louis Amde Savoie and Longines was the first to use automatic timekeeping for the Federal Gymnastics, at Basel in 1912.

In 1936, the Wittnauer family sold A. Wittnauer Co. to Longines and renamed the Company    Longines-Wittnauer Co.

 ROLLED GOLD PLATE & GOLD FILLED

THE CASE ON THIS WONDERFUL LONGINES GOLD FILLED. WHICH MEANS REAL GOLD IS BONDED TO BASE AND ROLLED THROUGH A MIL WHERE IF COMPRESSES AND REDUCES THE THICKNESS. THEN CASES AND PARTS ARE EITHER HAND MADE OR MACHINE STAMPED OUT. THIS IS WHY POCKET WATCHES OVER 100 YEARS OF AGE EXIST WITH THE GOLD STILL COVERING THE BASE.. EVEN WHEN THE CASES ARE GUARANTEED , OR, SAY, 20 YEARS
