Breitling watches: History of the Luxury Watchmakers
Breitling is a Swiss luxury watchmaker founded in 1884 by Léon Breitling in Saint-Imier, Switzerland. After Léon’s death in 1914, the business was passed on to his son, Gaston and his son Willy then took over the production of Breitling watches in 1935. In December 1979 during the watch crises, the Breitling factory in La Chaux de Fonds was shut down and then owned by Ernest Schneider. He’s the one who helped the Swiss luxury watchmaker turn around and further expand its rich history of simplistic automatic watch designs featuring high quality and precision.
Since their early days, Breitling watches were heavily inspired by aviation designing precise, simplistic, and robust pilot watches. The Royal Air force became a customer of the Breitling in 1926 followed by the US Air Force which ordered their newly launched Chronomat watches in 1942. In 1962 a 24-hour version of the Breitling Navitimer model was worn by astronaut Scott Carpenter, to tell the time on earth via space!
What Makes Breitling so Special?

With aviation being the major source of inspiration, many Breitling watches are designed to meet the need of modern pilots. The case, black dial, hands, and bracelets of a Breitling automatic watch is made using the best quality materials.

Breitling watches are made with the help of highly skilled watchmakers, and cutting-edge machinery, and to design some of the most luxury and complex watch designs. This makes Breilting a perfect tool for aviation and a classy timepiece to wear on any occasion.

The Breitling Navitimer was designed by the brand after being approached by the US Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) to create a chronograph for its members. The initial models didn’t feature the Breitling brand name or logo on the dial. Since its launch, the Breitling Navimeter line has undergone many updates however every model is recognizable due to its beaded bezels and 3 subdials.
