History of Longines

Preceded by an Essay on the Agassiz Comptoir

By Andre Francillon

1947, 75 pages, ill

This book (which includes 8 portraits from the original) is an excellent history of the Longines Watch Company.

It is provided as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file:

Illustration: Longines master navigation watch, 1941.
Presumably the Hamilton Watch Company could not make enough 4992B navigation watches for the US forces and some watches had to be imported.
