Breitling is a Swiss-made luxury brand of men’s and women’s watches produced by Breitling SA, which is still a privately owned company. The watchmaker was first popular amongst aviation pioneers. These days, however, Breitling watches are popular status symbols.
Breitling watches are known for their over-sized faces. This is a feature that was originally intended for better visibility, yet today it is a signature feature of Breitling watches. Many Breitling models feature a mechanical automatic winding mechanism and are equipped with additional functions such as the flyback function, split-second, moon phase, date display and so forth.
The price points of a Breitling watch vary. Quartz models such as the Breitling Aeromarine Colt start at $2,055.00 on a rubber strap. Between 2011 and 2003, Breitling sponsored Team Bentley during their Le Mans 24 Hours campaign. To commemorate the event, Breitling created the Limited Edition Breitling Bentley 24 Le Mans Watch. The watch is now one of their most popular models and RRP begins at around $7,300 for the traditional steel-cased model.
Many celebrities love Breitling watches and Jerry Seinfeld is said to own every Breitling available. Other A-List fans include Simon Cowell, Ludacris, Tom Cruise and John Travolta.
