Breitling: Luxurious wristwatches made in Switzerland
Since many years the Breitling Watch Company has become generally known as a symbol for exclusive Swiss Haute Horlogerie. Léon Breitling founded a small workshop with the aim to devote himself to the exclusive fields of the art of watchmaking in the year 1883 in Saint-Imier in Bernese Jura and concentrated on the development of the finest precision instruments for the industry, science and sports.
As early as 1915 Breitling launches the first wrist watch with a central chronograph dial and a meter for 30 minutes. In 1923 the first independent chronograph pushers were introduced and 11 years later, 1934, Breitling introduced the second independent chronograph pusher which enabled the reset to zero. This technics has generally become accepted quickly, was adopted by all of the competitors and yet is part of the worldwide standard.
Partner of Aeronautics - Breitling
Due to the outstanding quality and the continuous innovative spirit Breitling accompanies not only athletic contests and automobile races but also the first master strokes of the aviation pioneers. The aeronautical tradition began with the creation of the operation for the mechanism of the chronograph through the supply of the Royal Air Force with on-board clocks up to the recommendation of the Navitimer as the clock for pilots in the year 1952 by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (abbreviated as AOPA). The Breitling Cosmonaute even flew twice around the world in the capsule Aurora 7 together with Scott Carpenter in the year 1962.
