Breitling wristwatches reflect a rich heritage of premium Swiss craftsmanship and design. Founded in Jura Switzerland in 1884 by Leon Breitling, the brand is renowned for creating the world’s first chronograph.
In 1915 Breitling invented the first independent chronograph push-piece. Eight years later, it perfected the system of the stop/start functions from that of resetting, a mechanism that was extremely useful for the timing of sporting events and calculation of flight times. In 1934, Breitling created the second independent reset push-piece, a decisive breakthrough in watch-making history.
In the 1930s, Breitling introduced a range of specialty onboard aviation chronographs for use in aircraft cockpits, which became immediately indispensable for pilots and were used by the British Royal Air Force in World War II on fighter planes.
Breitling solidified its aviation reputation in 1952 with the introduction of the legendary Navitimer chronograph, which featured a slide-rule bezel to perform navigational functions. The timepiece immediately became a favorite of pilots and aviation pros and is still in production today.
Today, Breitling remains an independent, family-owned watchmaker. Each and every timepiece produced by the brand is manufactured at their plant in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. What’s more Breitling is the only watch brand to submit all of its timepieces, both automatic and quartz to the Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute for official Chronometer certification.
