WHY WE LOVE BREITLING WATCHES!
With a legacy that spans over 130 years, Breitling is a hugely influential brand that has used its technical expertise to create cutting-edge, luxury timepieces that have not only been worn and enjoyed in everyday life but have also been used for precise calculations by the aviation and sporting industries.
Founder and watchmaker Leon Breitling started out crafting watches in his workshop in Saint-Imier in Switzerland. The focus was on creating chronographs and precision watches for industrial, scientific and sporting purposes, with the business developing until it outgrew its workshop and relocated to a premises in La Chaux-de-Fonds. When Leon passed away his son Gaston stepped up and he continued the company’s innovative spirit. In 1915 Breitling released one of the first wristwatch chronographs to feature a separate push piece at 3 o’clock.
The Chronomat which launched in 1942, featured an innovative circular slide rule and paved the way for one of Breitling’s most important watches, the Navitimer. Bringing together the words ‘navigation’ and ‘timer’, this timepiece was unveiled in the 1950s and was designed to be the go-to watch for pilots. Equipped with the same slide rule on the bezel, this piece of engineering allowed the wearer to calculate all the essentials needed for a flight such as airspeed, flight time and distance. Breitling partnered up with the Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association and the Navitimer became the official timepiece of the organisation, remaining a favourite watch of pilots around the world. The design watch developed through the decades with the release of quartz versions, different dial designs, the introduction of in-house movements and limited edition models. As one of the most iconic chronograph watches ever made, the Breitling Navitimer remains extremely sought after in the luxury second-hand market today and as such is a clever investment to make when looking to add to your watch collection.
Not content with ruling the skies, Breitling also took its expertise to the seas by answering a growing demand for diving watches. In the late 1950s the company unveiled its SuperOcean chronograph designed to make it easy for divers to read underwater and with the ability to be water resistant up to depths of 200 metres. The SuperOcean continued to evolve and change, incorporating updated aesthetics and innovations, with the newest models featuring a helium valve that means it can cope with water pressures up to 2,000 metres.
Breitling’s desire to innovate continued with one of its more recent models, the Exospace B55. Tapping into our need for connectivity, this chronograph watch connects to a smartphone and notifies the wearer of messages, appointments and phone calls. Keeping its close ties to aviation, it features all the technology useful for pilots including an electronic tachymeter and the ability to record flight times. Super sleek in a titanium case, this is one for those who love technology.
Breitling has pushed the boundaries of watchmaking from the beginning and made the history books in the process. Producing world-first chronographs and creating timepieces that do so much more than tell the time, Breitling has created some of the most iconic watches in the world, which is why second-hand Breitling watches continue to be sought after in the designer pre-owned market.
