History Of Breitling Watches

Breitling watches have been around for over a century and have become one of the most popular and sought-after timepieces in the world. Founded in 1884 by Leon Breitling, the company has been creating high-end Swiss watches ever since.

The original goal of the company was to create chronographs and timers that could be used by pilots, and they quickly grew in fame due to their accuracy and precision. The company’s first chronograph was created in 1913 and was an instant hit with pilots. Breitling continued to innovate and create watches that could withstand the rigors of aviation, leading to the development of the Chronomat in 1942 which featured an innovative slide rule bezel.

Throughout the years, Breitling continued to develop their watches, adding features like self-winding movement, quartz movements, and even atomic clocks. In 1984, the company released the Breitling Aerospace, a completely digital watch that was the first of its kind. In 2017, Breitling released a new line of watches called the Navitimer 8 collection, which featured more modern designs and technology.

Today, Breitling watches are still highly sought-after and are known for their quality, accuracy, and style. They are also one of the few companies still producing mechanical watches, ensuring that their watches will remain highly sought-after for years to come.
