As the only watchmaker to have set up and remained in Saint Imier, Longines celebrate their three core values of Elegance, Tradition and Sport with the stunning Saint Imier watch collection. The timepieces are beautifully refined and showcase a selection of different materials and textures to add depth and dimension to each design. Longines have established close connections to the village that they have evolved in since the year of 1832. The range therefore takes inspiration from the surroundings of their watchmaking factory, together with the journey shared throughout some of their most memorable successes, and the milestones reached with each.
Longines Saint Imier watches reflect the brand’s distinct watchmaking heritage. Not only that but they have each been fitted with a powerful set of tools to equip the wearer with precise timekeeping, fused with stunning aesthetics. Each timepiece from the Longines Saint Imier collection has been fitted with a profound mechanical movement to promise an unparalleled accuracy – a quality that would satisfy even the strictest of watch critics. Not only do these movements reflect the brand’s values but they perform peerlessly inside robust case constructions, designed for every imaginable challenge.
Longines Saint Imier Chronographs reflect the skills and talents of those engineers that have been representing the Swiss-based brand for over one and a half centuries. Some have been created using a combination of different materials including rose gold coloured accents, others use the reliable stainless steel casing to create a glimmering sheen against a jet black or luxurious silver dial. Longines Saint Imier watches have been fitted with sapphire crystal exhibition casebacks to put their beautifully engineered movements on display. The wearer can enjoy the synergy and the harmonious rhythm of each expertly crafted machine that propels the beating heart of the timepiece, with an admirable effortlessness.
Within our collection of Longines Saint Imier watches, we offer Longines Saint Imier ladies watches as well as Longines Saint Imier men’s watches. The design concepts of both are equal in beauty and functionality. Clean uncluttered dials are decorated with baton index hour tracks – all that is, apart from the twelfth hour location which is represented in a bold Arabic numeral. The central hour and minute hands of the dials have been treated with a vibrant luminous coating to serve as a legible tool throughout the night and during those conditions where lighting is most compromised. A date aperture is seen at 3 o’clock dressed in a sharp rectangular border, with the Longines brand lettering adding balance to the dial underneath midnight.
The 41mm Longines Saint Imier Chronograph watch within our collection, features blue steeled hands and a sweeping second hand. The chronograph dials accommodate a large proportion of the dial which sees the date aperture relocated to the 4:30 mark. Despite the sporty chronograph sub-dials, the timepiece, like all Longines Saint Imier watches, demonstrates clarity and a disciplined look that is admired most by those who consider functionality paramount in their wristwatch. The symbiotic relationship between Longines’ materials and their superb mechanics is something quite profound. Not only do both parallels compliment one another but they stand firmly as examples of the brand’s passion for the very finest in quality.
