We Recommend: Breitling

"Throughout its existence, Breitling has produced many watches that now hold iconic status. Revered by wearers and collectors alike – years, even decades, after their original release, the luxury watch house is synonymous with aviation chronometers, such as the legendary Navitimer, its Chronomat and Superocean timepieces. My current favourite is the new pink mother of pearl Navitimer. A simplified design that forgoes the legendary slide rule makes this timepiece much slimmer on the wrist. This collection also features Breitling's origin label that means the diamonds in this piece are lab-grown and are fully traceable. Traceable preious materials combined with subtle refinements, gives this timepiece a versatile and elegant appeal."

About Breitling

Breitling is a leader in luxury watchmaking. Founded in 1884, the Swiss brand pioneered navigational tool watches and invented the modern chronograph. Over the years, pilots and adventurers alike have relied on the brand’s highly accurate timepieces. Today, Breitling remains one of the few independent watchmakers that manufactures its movements in house – each one is a COSC-certified chronometer. The brand’s collections centre on air, sea and land pursuits, reflecting its navigational history and combining classic watchmaking with contemporary design. Breitling is spearheading a movement of inclusive luxury with more than 150 relaxed, industrial loft-inspired retail locations worldwide.

History of Breitling Watches

Leon Breitling founded the brand in St Imier, Switzerland, in 1884. He honed his craft by creating pocket watches and other time-measuring instruments, quickly developing a prestigious reputation. By 1889, the brand had already patented its widely popular chronograph – famous for its easy-to-use, simplistic design.

After Leon Breitling passed away in 1914, his son Gaston Breitling took over the family business, fuelled by the pioneering spirit and passion for meticulous watchmaking that had been passed down to him. Just one year later, the brand launched one of the world's first wrist chronographs that included an additional push-piece stopper uniquely incorporated into its design.

The first release of the Navitimer, which would later become one of Breitling’s most enigmatic watches, came in 1952. As the name suggests, this watch was designed as a timer for pioneering navigators and has been a go-to timepiece for aviation professionals ever since.

In 1984, Breitling celebrated its 100th anniversary with the launch of an entirely new automatic Chronomat, instantly distinguishable by its bezel riders and unique link strap. Although released for this special occasion, the design was based on a watch that was created a year prior for the Frecce Tricolori – the world-famous Italian aviation acrobats.

1985 saw the introduction of the Aerospace Breitling watch. This quartz timepiece featured a titanium exterior and combined analogue and digital displays. Later that year, the vastly popular Navitimer was adapted to feature a new self-winding mechanism. Breitling has since gone from strength to strength, refining its powerful watchmaking skills to produce further intricate models to serve adventurers and the general public.
