Kate Winslet reveals the new Longines Saint-Imier Collection
October 2011: Late September this year saw a marked event in the history of the famed watch brand Longines, which is popularly known by its winged hourglass logo. The brand was originally set up in 1832 in what was then a small village nestling in a valley deep in the Swiss Jura Mountains in Saint-Imier. The fate of Longines and the village of Saint-Imier has thus been closely interwoven.
Christened the Longines Saint-Imier Collection, the brand launched a series of exceptional timepieces in the name of Saint-Imier to pay tribute to its almost 180 years of watchmaking heritage, as the beautiful Kate Winslet graced the occassion.
