Breitling Brand Focus
In 1884, Leon Breitling set up a small workshop in the Jura Mountains, Switzerland with the purpose to develop and produce mechanical timepieces which could record small measurements of time. He became the inventor of the modern chronograph. Over 120 years later, Breitling is now firmly established as one of the largest manufacturers of mechanical chronographs in the world.
Breitling is proud to share a strong partnership with the exciting and demanding world of aviation, initially as a supplier of timing equipment in the cockpit and as the official supplier to the RAF in WW2. With the development of the Chronomat in 1942, the first chronograph to be fitted with a circular slide rule, and the Navitimer in 1952 equipped with a navigation computer, Breitling has become the ultimate instrument for the professional pilot.
Today, Breitling’s obsession with quality, performance and rugged good looks appeal to both style conscious men and women alike. As a luxury watch, Breitling maintain the highest standards of precision and craftsmanship with 100% of the range achieving Chronometer Certification. It is not surprising therefore, that it is still the preferred choice for pilots such as the Red Arrows, Freece Tricolour and many other display teams around the world including the famous Breitling Jet Team.
