With a strong focus on tradition, elegance and of course, performance, Longines is a brand that prides itself on creating versatile timepieces that have been built to last. Founded by Auguste Agassiz in the Swiss town of Saint Imier in 1832, Longines has propelled itself to one of the world’s leading watch brands with it's 185 year proud history of creating elegant watches with innovative engineering. Longines and the town of St Imier have an inextricably shared history; Longines created the Saint Imier Line in order to honour this history, and to pay tribute to the fertile soil on which the Longines empire was first created. Fastened with an 18 carat rose gold plated and stainless steel strap, the 26mm case of this beautiful watch is finished with a striking rose gold and steel bezel and rose gold crown. The sleek mother of pearl dial, protected by scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass, features diamond index markers and rose gold hands that have been treated with a luminescent coating to render them visible at any time of the day or night. A water resistance of up to 30m means that the superior automatic function of this watch will stay protected come rain or shine, while a handy date window positioned at 3 o'€™clock adds an extra dimension of functionality. A handsome blend of classic design and exceptional materials, this Longines St Imier watch is the perfect tribute to a unique relationship between location and industry.
