Collector Finds the Oldest Known Longines Watch In Existence

Beginning way back in 1832, Longines has an eclectic history of superb watch-making. This is a history so rich and proud that the company even has an in-house museum which was recently reconstructed. This museum contains some of Longines’ most beautiful creations, along with in-depth displays of the company’s greatest achievements.

Although the museum obviously plays host to an array of gorgeous watches, it was the recent discovery of the ‘Longines 183’ by a loyal collector that claims the title of most rare. The watch was manufactured in 1867, just 35 years after Longines’ establishment.
