The Fashion And Durability Of Breitling Watches

The next time you are looking for a luxurious and technically advanced watch, consider the output of the Swiss brand that is known as Breitling. The company can trace its history back to the day in 1884 when it was founded by Leon Breitling in Saint-Imier, Bernese Jura, and in the years since then, it has firmly established itself as a key manufacturer of aviation watches in particular. Nonetheless, there is so much more about the brand to discover, as can be done by taking a closer look at the various ranges that it offers.

First of all, though, it's worth running through some of the key events in Breitling's history, in order to establish a better understanding of the brand and what its watches stand for today. Not only did Breitling play a significant role in the development of the wrist chronograph, for example, but it remains a key name in this field of watchmaking today. In its development of its renowned aviation timepieces, the brand has always prioritized high performance, reliability and sturdiness, and it remains the sole major watch brand across the world to create models with chronometer-certified movements - signalling its commitment to precision.

Breitling Supremacy

 So, what are the separate watch ranges that best demonstrate the continued relevance and supremacy of the Breitling brand today? Well, it's certainly difficult to look past the Navitimer range as a place to start, as this is an aviation-oriented collection of watches that is one of the best-known in the wider Breitling range. The Navitimer model can trace its history back to the moment in the 1940s when a circular slide rule was added to the bezel of the firm's chronograph models, ostensibly for the use of aircraft pilots.

 The Navitimer went from strength to strength in subsequent decades, with a version having been offered in the 1950s and 1960s by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, complete with a dial bearing the AOPA logo. In 1961, Breitling was approached by one of the Mercury space program's original astronauts, Scott Carpenter, who suggested that the firm incorporate a 24 hour dial rather than a 12 hour dial, as was then the norm. Breitling responded by doing precisely that, with its subsequent creation - the 24 hour Navitimer - being worn by Carpenter on his 1962 space flight.

Popular Versions of Breitling Watches

 Other versions of Breitling watches down the years have included the Emergency, which features a radio transmitter for civil aviation use. This transmitter acts as a back-up for ELT-type airborne beacons, broadcasting on the 121.5 MHz distress frequency. Nonetheless, if there is just one category that is applicable to the world of Breitling watches other than aviation, it is diving, which is why you may also be familiar with the SuperOcean range of watches that are highly water resistant.

Other popular Breitling watch ranges include Avenger, Colt, Galactic and Transocean, all of which cater for a wide range of needs as they apply to the usual audience for luxury watches. As one of the few remaining independent Swiss watch brands, the family-owned Breitling has a keen appreciation for what made it legendary in the first place, and therefore continues to apply those principles to this day.
