Agassizs nephew, Ernest Francillon, developed the business and chose the Longines brand name and the logo depicting a winged hourglass. This logo is the oldest current trade mark of the World Intellectual Property Organization. In 1867 Longines made their first movement and in 1868 they launched a movement that could be winded up by turning the watchs crown, so there was no need of a key. The firm has been official timekeeper in fourteen Olympic Games and in many sport events. Today Longines is part of the Swiss Swatch group.
