A LITTLE HISTORY: Longines is a luxury watch company based in Saint-Imier, Switzerland. Founded by Auguste Agassiz in 1832, it is owned by the Swatch Group. Longines is known for its "Aviators" range of watches. A company director was a friend of Charles Lindbergh; after his transatlantic flight, Lindbergh designed a pilot watch to help with air navigation. Built to his specifications, it is still produced today.
With the start of the counterattack of the Soviet army, "trophy teams" began to operate in its units, following in the wake of the attacking units. Watches collected by such teams entered the award fund.
Watches often turned out to be more valuable gifts than medals of military valor. The command understood that their subordinates might simply not live up to the moment of awarding a medal or an order. The watches is over 70 years old and is eligible for wear of parts.
