Longines was founded in Saint-Imier in 1832 by Auguste Agassiz, a Swiss watchmaker and brother of biologist Louis Agassiz. Auguste had two partners, lawyers Henri Raiguel and Florian Morel; the company's original name was Raiguel Jeune & Cie. By 1846, Raigeul and Morel had retired from the watch industry, leaving Agassiz as sole company head.

Like so many other brands, Longines was hit hard by the quartz crisis. But it didn't mean the brand gave up. During the 1970s, the brand showed how inventive and great a brand they were.

Here we have the Longines Admiral oversize "flying saucer" or "Ufo", in stainless steel with a huge 43 mm case and stunning silver sunburst dial with blue indexes.

It has a classic '70 UFO design, also described inside the Goldberger's Longines book.

The Longines Caliber 431 inside is an automatic with 17 jewels, 19800 A/h, 42 hours power reserve.

The watch is in New Old Stock conditions, with seal on the back and original box.
