Longines is hunting for their oldest watch in The Netherlands

Heritage is everything when you are a Swiss watch brand. Most established watch brands have a company museum as well as a restoration department for their old watches, and so does Longines. Last year an American collector had the oldest known Longines watch in the world authenticated by the brand. This pocket watch was from 1867.

Longines is now looking for their oldest pocket watch in The Netherlands. For this, they have joined forces with Fratello, one of the world’s leading watch blogs. Between March 1st and June 1st, 2019, people can submit the serial number of their vintage Longines, which will be verified in the companies archives.

The winner of the contest, the owner of the oldest Longines pocket watch in The Netherlands, will be rewarded with a trip for two to St-Imier. There they will have the opportunity to visit the museum and archives of the brand, as well as the manufacture of Longines. People who want to join are invited to visit Particupating is easy: just fill out the form and upload pictures of your old Longines watch.

The author 0024 Editorial Team

When we started publishing our first high-end watch magazine in 1999, we had only one intention: increasing the popularity of high-quality mechanical watches. Now, many years later, this has not changed at all. In 2017 we have reinvented ourselves to serve our readers in a different and better way. Starting in 2017, the new 0024 is again better equipped to interact with the changing world of high-end watches. The new 0024 HORLOGES magazine (written in Dutch) will be at least a 200 pager: that’s twice the volume of our magazine in the old days.
