Breitling Watches: Keeping Perfect Time for 140 Years

The History of Breitling Watches

Breitling was established in 1884 and has continued innovating high-end timepieces for 140 years. Leon Breitling, a luxury Swiss watchmaker, founded his namesake in the beautiful Jura Mountains of Switzerland. The company initially only produced chronographs and precision watches for sports, science, and industrial purposes. However, it continues to grow and innovate to this day.

In 1915, the company introduced its first chronograph wristwatch, and in 1923 it released the first independent chronograph push piece, which proved to be useful for calculating flight times and timing sports competitions.

A few decades later, in 1969, Breitling developed the world’s first self-winding chronograph movement. And in 1984, it followed that up with its iconic Chronomat watches.

Breitling continues to grow with time (pun intended) by launching precise self-winding chronograph movements and smartwatches. And whatever advanced technology comes along, Breitling is sure to be there.

What Are Breitling Watches Known For?

Breitling created pilot watches. Their timepieces are also prized for their precision and reliability. For example, the Breitling Aviator 8 and the Transocean Ultimate Pilot are famous for their technical, highly accurate chronographs. Both watches offer simultaneous readings in all 24 of the world’s time zones.

Breitling is one of the most prominent brands when it comes to aviation watches. During the 20th century, Breitling’s variety of high-quality timers and chronographs are what set the standard for the entire industry. That’s also what makes Breitling watches coveted among aviators, athletes, and sports enthusiasts today.

Breitling also enjoys instant brand recognition with its famous winged “B” logo. And since they’ve never stopped reimagining their brand and style, they continue to reign supreme.

Some of Breitling’s top selling watches are the Navitimer and the Chronomat.  Divers and aviation professionals prefer Breitling watches because of their proven dependability and quality craftsmanship.

What Makes Breitling Watches Unique (and Valuable)?

Breitling timepieces are some of the most sought-after watches because they are long lasting and made of the highest quality. They only use the finest materials available, including gold, titanium, and surgical grade stainless steel. They also take pride in their advanced, timeless designs crafted with superior quality Swiss-made components.

Breitling watches are proudly made in Switzerland at their facilities in La Chaux-de-Fonds (called Breitling Chronométrie). Switzerland is famous for hosting superior watch brands. And people love that they are very stylish and can be worn for just about any occasion.

Why Choose Breitling Watches Over Other Timepieces?

Breitling watches are some of the most coveted timepieces available because they are more comfortable and stylish than other Swiss brands. In fact, their watchbands are so comfortable that people who have owned a Breitling never want to wear anything else.

Another reason to choose a Breitling timepiece is accuracy. All Breitling watch movements are tested by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute. This helps ensure a high accuracy level of timekeeping. Every one of Breitling’s watches must undergo rigorous testing and pass multiple rounds of stringent COSC testing to earn their “Chronometer” certification.

That means each new Breitling timepiece is COSC-certified. So you can rest assured you are getting a watch of exceptional quality and style that has been through the strictest quality controls. You can truly feel the quality.

Breitling is also committed to optimizing the social and environmental impacts of their business. They pride themselves on pioneering new ways to sustainably source and manufacture the materials they use. They are transitioning to renewable energy across the globe while working to eliminate plastic waste throughout their global operation.
