Longines is providing a five year warranty on all watches with movements using an anti-magnetic silicon balance spring.
The brand is highlighting its new COSC-certified Longines Spirit collection as among the first watches to be covered by the extended guarantee.
“At Longines, we strive for watchmaking excellence and customer satisfaction. An efficient and first-class customer service is part of the brand experience”, said Matthias Breschan, CEO of Longines.
“All of our recent technical advancements have enabled us to introduce this new five-year warranty, for all models with silicon balance-spring, demonstrating that our quality standards are continually improving,” he adds.
Longines joins a growing list of Swiss watchmakers offering 5 year warranties that includes Rolex, Omega, Breitling and Panerai.
Silicon balance springs do not inherently make watches more reliable, but their resistance to corrosion, temperature variations, magnetic fields, and atmospheric pressure can improve a watch’s accuracy and longevity.
