Longines museum, St-Imier
"We discovered this museum, located on the banks of the Suze, by taking a guided tour which we booked ahead of time. It traces the history of Longines from 1832 with exhibits of pocket watches and wrist watches from various periods, chronographs and other navigation instruments, as well as some unusual advertising materials. This visit helped me to discover a fascinating world, an extraordinary story of technological development and some true masterpieces of timekeeping. I love seeing where famous brands are made and it was well worth coming to St-Imier to visit Longines. The staff takes great interest in their company and they gave us professional information in English."
The Longines museum retraces the fascinating history of the brand with the winged hour glass, throughout the previous centuries. It’s also a witness of the great epic Swiss watch history, and the grand legacy forged in tradition, elegance and performance.
