In 1832, Auguste Agassiz, brother of the famous naturalist Louis Agassiz, began a watch-making establishment. He, along with the help of 2 partners, designed and sold watches with special crown-wheel escapements, similar to the famed Swiss watches. By 1867, the family-owned business opened the Longines factory in Saint-Imer. The same year, they produced their first movement, the 20A – a 20-line calibre with an anchor escapement and pendant winding mechanism. The 20A won an award at the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1867.

Following success at the Universal Exhibition, the Longines watch brand began commercial production. The company’s leader, Francillon, took measures to protect the business by filing for a brand name with the Federal Office of Intellectual Property in 1880. Longines is now the oldest WIPO-registered brand name still in use today.
