Breitling: The Inventor of the Modern ChronographThese instruments enjoyed great success in various armed forces, including the Royal Air Force, which used them in World War II propeller-driven fighter planes.
This solid connection to aviation continued, and in 1952, Breitling launched its legendary Navitimer watch, featuring a circular slide rule to perform the entire range of calculations relating to airborne navigation. This model shared the finest sky borne adventures and was soon chosen as the official watch by the AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association), the world’s largest association of its kind. It is still a favored iconic model for pilots today and is the oldest mechanical chronograph still in production.
Breitling: The Authentic Partner of AviationToday, more than ever, Breitling is synonymous with aviation. Breitling perpetuates its longstanding ties with aeronautics by overseeing the restoration of legendary aircraft, operating several exceptional flight teams, and supporting the international elite among pilots and squadrons, as well as by associating with the world’s finest air shows. Some favorite Breitling watches among pilots include the Breitling Aerospace, which was launched in 1985, and the innovative Emergency watch with a built-in transmitter that was originally introduced in 1995. It was recently updated and is now the world’s first wristwatch with a dual frequency locator beacon (PLB).
Breitling: The Master of PerformanceTrained in the tough school of aviation, a domain where safety is of vital importance, Breitling displays the same obsession with quality in all its 100% Swiss made “instruments for professionals.” The brand is one of the very few in the world to submit all its movements (both mechanical and quartz) to the merciless tests of the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) – the highest benchmark of precision and reliability, and the only one based on an international norm. Most recently, Breitling released the Exospace B55, the brand’s first connected chronograph that embodies innovation, functionality and performance.
