Robust, precise, and charismatic: Breitling watches pride themselves on their legendary designs and excellent quality. Popular among pilots, top athletes, and the stars of the silver screen - Breitling watches enjoy a high recognition value. The Breitling business logo - the winged B-initial - clearly shows the connection of the watch manufacturer with aviation. Breitling was established soon after the first successful flight in world history: in 1884, Léon Breitling founded his watch workshop in the Swiss Jura Mountains.
Like many of his generation, Léon Breitling was fascinated by racing and speed, and he, therefore, devoted himself to creating the best stopwatch on the market. Since then, Breitling has specialized in the production of high-quality chronographs and has been able to make major contributions to further the development of short-term measurement. In 1923, Breitling presented the first watch with independent chronograph pushers; until then it was common practice to operate a stopwatch through its winding crown. In 1934, with the introduction of a second pusher that could reset the stopwatch to zero, Breitling created the face of the modern Chronograph. Two pushers and a crown - what every watch enthusiasts takes for granted today goes back to the ground-breaking innovation by Breitling.
