Longines was founded by Auguste Agassiz on 14 August 1832 in the Jura village of St Limier.
Ernest Francillon took over the firm in 1854.
Despite the prosperous business, Francillon realizes that countertop watchmaking is a thing of the past. There is no permanent quality control, no fast customer service, no stock of spare parts to facilitate service as long as each watch remains a unique hand-made specimen, the only way out is mass production.
He decides to manufacture machine tools himself. One year later the first precision watches are signed "E Francillon, Longines, Switzerland".
The proposed model is a very rare Longines diving boat with a very beautiful aesthetic.
It has all the assets of a collectible diver's watch.
A round steel Compressor style case with a large opening, it measures 42mm in diameter.
Double crown, one of which operates the 60-minute graduated bezel inside, the other adjusts the hours and minutes. Black dial with luminescent painted Arabic numerals and indexes. Luminescent stylized hands. The movement is mechanical with automatic winding.
Longines, a great name in watchmaking, is offering us an example of an atypical watch.
A Compressor like no other.
Its large size gives it a privileged relationship with collectors.
This uncommon model is to be worn in all circumstances, it is to be put in your collection of iconic female divers.
