LONGINES, RECORD, WHAT’S THE STORY?

Post by koimaster » July 11th 2022, 8:06pm

You may have noticed the Longines ‘Records’ for sale online or perhaps Longines’ modern re-issue of the ‘Record’. But the history of Record goes back far before it was ever linked to Longines, starting in a small town in the Jura mountains over 100 years ago.

Record was founded in 1903 by a group of businessmen looking to sell the ‘Sector Watch’, a triangular pocket watch with retrograde. An unusual but fairly popular pocket watch in the 1900s. This was followed by a merger in the 1910s that saw them become Record Dreadnought. In the 1920s they evolved into producing wristwatches with in-house movements, becoming one of the top Swiss watch brands in the early 20th century.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
