The history of the development of the popular watch brand began 132 years ago, when unfamiliar to everyone, but a very talented and ambitious young man Leon Breitling transformed his interest in chronographs into the business, which has made all his family famous. In 1884 Leon Breitling released the first original chronograph watch Breitling, which was equipped with such an accurate mechanism by him that even renowned watch masters could envy him. So the fame about a skillful master spread over Switzerland. Within a very short period of time his business has got on better and he managed to buy a factory in La Chaux-de-Fonds, where he with an extreme passion started to produce various measurement instrumentation and chronometers. This person was not only a talented watchmaker, he also possessed an impressive intuition and ability to feel the wind of change, that is why authentic Breitling watches the price of which was competitive from the “first models” gained reputation of the manufacturer that produced quality and perfect products.
In 1914 the company, which was called «Leon G. Breitling S.A. Montbrillant Watch Manufactory» then, was inherited by the son of the founder – Gaston. When he was in charge of the company the brand released a famous chronograph model called Vitesse, which was especially adored by the members of government, military and policemen. When the company was headed by Willy Breitling, its popularity has taken the world by storm. The firm set a course for aviation. During this period there were created highly accurate chronographs, which were worn by pilots and aircraft company workers, and a bow logarithmic rule was developed and mounted into the watch mechanism. That is why not every person was able to buy luxurious Breitling watches as the cost of these brand watches is unaffordable for everyone.
In 1952 one of the most best-selling models of the brand called Navitimer was created, it was equipped with three hands that measured not only time, but also its speed. Apart from aviation Breitling watches were discovering space too. In the 70s of the last century the company met a challenge of reconstruction for quartz mechanisms successfully and the models of the brand held out for quality and became the watches, the accuracy of which was estimated at 99.99%. Having technically perfect mechanisms and pleasant aesthetic design Breitling watches were ranked among top five best chronographs of the world.
Today a watch giant no longer belongs to Breitling family, it was purchased by some Ernest Schneider – an experienced pilot and watchmaker. That is why you still can buy wrist Breitling watches with shipping and warranty in our watch store. Schneider preserved all the traditions and values, which had been formed for decades. Nowadays the company produces four collections of chronometers: Navitimer, Professional, Windrider and Breitling for Bentley.
