Located in Saint-Imier since 1832, Longines has established close links with the village that has seen the foundation and development of the firm.

Today, with The Longines Saint-Imier Collection, the brand is launching a series of exceptional timepieces fitted with mechanical movements that has sprung from the fertile area that constitutes the watchmaking heritage of its home territory.
As a partner of the most prestigious flat races in the world, Longines was keen to launch a collection of timepieces to be worn amidst the excitement of the parade rings at Chantilly, Hong Kong, Royal Ascot or Dubai racecourses.
