Featuring high end movements wrapped inside the finest selection of materials, Longines automatic watches are perfect examples of the brand’s 185-year legacy to date.

Having a watch with an exhibition caseback is considered one of the most sought-after features of an automatic watch. It provides the lady or the gent with a unique and highly personal quality to their watch that only they have access to viewing. It also allows the wearer to take a surrealistic plunge into the depths of the manufacturer’s most intricate level of watchmaking skill – a chance to enjoy the very most out of their purchase.
Longines automatic watches come in all shapes and sizes, and it’s certainly not only gentlemen who like to appreciate a mechanical movement over a quartz movement.

These mechanical engines include automatic, self winding or manual-wind mechanicals, and employ several hundred year-old-technology. With hundreds of parts to each movement, it is certainly no wonder that Longines automatic watches offer the very best in precision.
