Longines to search for the oldest Longines watch in India
June 5, 2013: Watchmaker Longines will soon initiate a search for the oldest Longines watch in India to commemorate the presence of Longines watches in India for more than 135 years.
Started in 1832, the first shipment of Longines watches entered India in 1878. Currently present in 77 points of sale, Longines holds a strong position in India.
The competition opens for the public on June 17, 2013. To apply, the watch owners must fill in the application form with all relevant information including the serial number of their antique Longines timepiece and submit it with multiple images of the front and back of the timepiece, clearly showing the serial number. Application forms will be available at selected official retailers across the country. Participants also have the option of registering online on the dedicated website – www.oldestwatchindia.longines.com. After the collection of forms over a pre-assigned period of 5-6 weeks, experts at the Longines head office in Switzerland will carefully examine the information and make their findings.
The winner of the competition will get a chance to experience an all paid trip for two to Switzerland for a week and a chance to visit the Longines factory.
