    EFCo written on Longines case-back?

    what does the EFCo written on the Longines case back mean? I understand all else thats written there.
    thnx a lot..

    I tried mailing Longines themselves at their web-site but it says that a new one is under design so contacting section is out of order...so I though I'd ask here...thnx a lot,

    EFCo refers to the founder of the company - Ernest Francillon (July 1834 - April 1900).

    thnx a lot for the prompt reply but that date boggles me...1834 to 1900?...is that the time the company was ownmed by his family or the time the watches were marked with his name or is that the time the time the guy lived (LOL) ?

    I find its very sweet to have initials of the founder's name on the watch...is longines family owned/..as in I know it part of swatch but does the family have something to do with it too?..

    do kindly elaborate the date and thnx once again for the prompt and kind reply...cheers
