History of Longines Longines Symphonette Watches
The Story of the Longines Watchmaking Company began in the early 1830s when Auguste Agassiz created a pocket watch with crown-wheel escapement. By the start of the 20th Century, the Swiss watchmaker was already a well-known label on the market with its remarkable craftsmanship. In 1900, the brand even won the Grand Prix award with the Renommée pocket watch which housed a certified caliber 21.59 chronometer movement.
In the year 1913, Longines Company developed a caliber that will fit in its first wristwatch. However, the design of the movement was not really appeasing with its circular design, as it was similar to most of the Swiss watches. Through commitment and deep passion for innovation, Longines began developing shaped movements, which went on becoming a great turning point for its future timepieces.
With inspirations from the developed shaped movements, the Saint-Imier manufacturer created the Cleopara watch which takes its slave-like bracelet design from ancient Eastern styles. Upon its release, the wristwatch received a warm reception and even it received the 1975 Title of the Golden Rose of Baden-Baden.
Around the 1970-1980s, the introduction of the quartz movement really affected a lot of manufacturers of Swiss watches. While most of the brands disparaged the new technology, Longines Watchmaking Company invested in it instead. In fact, back in 1963, the luxury brand had even presented an electromechanical caliber L400 which used a 1.35 V mercury battery to operate.
Well, using the new quartz technology, Longines launched the Feuille d’Or watch which has an extremely thin caliber to ensure the 1.98mm thickness.
By the time Longines Watch Company was celebrating its 180th anniversary, the watchmaker had numerous watch designs, all stunning and charming. In livening its line of ladies watches, the renowned watchmaker introduced the Longines Symphonette collection whose design focuses on elegance and modernity.
Inspired by timeless class, the Longines Longines Symphonette watch features an elegant elliptical casing which tops your flair with the delicacy of Swiss watchmaking. The watch lineup has vast watch variants, all with feminine styling which is ready to accompany you with contemporary elegance wherever you go.
