Marketing Assistant - Longines

The company

Founded in 1832 at Saint-Imier in Switzerland, the Compagnie des Montres Longines Francillon S.A., more commonly known as Longines, is proud to have the oldest registered trade mark in the world. Over the years, Longines has played a pioneering role in many technological breakthroughs, with a particularly strong presence in the aviation industry and in the timing of sports events, while constantly exhibiting its characteristic elegance across the globe.

In one such example, Longines helped shape the history of the sporting world by introducing the first timing mechanism automatically triggered by an electric wire. Since then, the brand has been designated as the official partner and timekeeper of international federations and prestigious sporting events throughout the world. Longines has also marked the history of aviation and navigation by timing, among other feats, the first non-stop solo flight across the Atlantic by Charles Lindbergh.

Today, the brand remains at the cutting edge of innovation and seeks to ensure that all its watches offer a unique combination of tradition, performance and elegance.
