Longines was founded by Auguste Agassiz in 1832 and it currently holds the oldest registered logo for a watch company. Along with Omega, the Longines watch company has been associated with sports timekeeping. Longines provided the timers used at the first modern-day Olympics in 1892; they are the current official timekeepers of Royal Ascot. Longines has always made timeless watches and there are some models that stand out from the 1960s onwards. The Longines Conquest is one such sports focused model. The Longines Conquest Collection for men and women is quite extensive with casing sizes ranging from 29 mm to 41 mm.
The material is primarily stainless steel, although some of the newer models use black ceramic. Longines is also famous for its Aviator's watches. After his historic flight, Charles Lindbergh helped Longines design a pilot's watch with special features for air navigation. Longines is also the official timer of the World Air Sports Federation and has provided the timing equipment used to verify world aviation records – including Lindbergh's historic first non-stop solo crossing of the Atlantic. A modern version of this watch is in the current range, along with a wide selection of other vintage recreations from the firm’s exciting past.
