La Grande Classique de Longines
A modern classic timepiece from Longines
The traditional Swiss watchmaker Longines was first registered as a worldwide watch brand in 1893. The company, which was founded in 1832, soon became internationally renowned among watch connoisseurs and collectors. Since the inception of the brand, Longines has accumulated uninterrupted watchmaking savoir-faire and remains highly popular thanks to innovative and cutting edge technology in the watchmaking world. Longines can look back on a long and successful company history, which has helped establish the watchmakers as official partners of international sports federations and as official timekeepers of world championships.
The La Grande Classique Collection convinces with a particularly flat case design, resulting in an extremely slim and sleek profile. This sublime Longines collection retains the original features of the vintage watch it remembers. The first timepiece of the La Grande Classique hit series was presented in 1992, but the roots of the watch date back to the founder of the company, Auguste Agassiz, of whom the watch collection was named after. The current series is notable for its classic aesthetics that is also catered towards women with a sophisticated charm.
