Chronographs

The company started to show its affinity with sporting events during the 30s and 40s, producing a lot of unusual types of chronographs.Many were manufacturer with Longines’s own movement, unlike the rest of the companies which would rather buy chronograph from other companies.

Therefore, the Longines chronographs, those which were produced from the 20s to the 50s are highly prized and have their own separate niche in the collecting world.

The best of Longines’s chronograph movements was said to be the Caliber 13 ZN

It was first released in Longines’ 2-register models, but was later adapted for use in its 3-register models.

The following chronographs would show movements made by Valjoux and others. These are not recognized nearly as collectible as the chronographs with Longines’ own movements.
