Longines is a watch brand not to look past when buying a watch, the company started way back in 1832 under Auguste Agassiz, who formed a partnership with a watch workshop in Saint-Imier. Originally called ‘Agassiz and Compagnie,’ it wasn’t until 1866 when the company changed names to ‘Longines’.

Chronographs are something new to me, I have one in another brand and I like the more casual side it gives to a watch. When I first saw this flagship chronograph by Longines, I had a different thought, one of how luxury and smart it looked as opposed to the other watch I have. The beautiful clean details on the ivory dial, highlighted by gold and wrapped in a warm crocodile leather band. It is the perfect combination.
