Breitling History

The Breitling watch line traces it beginning back to 1884 when its founder Leon Breitling started with a small workshop in St-Imier Switzerland.  The business specialized in producing chronographs and precision scientific counting devices.  As a result of growth and expansion the company moved to La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1892, then the heart of Swiss watchmaking industry. Company leadership passed to Gaston Breitling (son of Leon) when the company's founder died in 1914.  The company introduced the first wrist chronograph a year later in 1915.  In 1923 the company introduced a chronograph with an independent pushpiece, before this the return-to-zero and start functions resided on the winding stem. Corporate leadership changed again in 1932 when the founder's grandson Willy Breitling took control. The company contributed to the distinctive chronograph style in 1934 when it introduced a 2 button device.  This instrument included a second return-to-zero button and allowed the ability to "add time" to the first button.  The Chronomat line was introduced in 1942 which included its distinctive circular slide rule function. This model became immediately popular with British and American pilots.  The Navitimer line was introduced in 1952.  In 1962 the newly introduced Cosmonaut line was aboard the Aurora 7, Mercury launch with astronaut Scott Carpenter.  In 1969 the company created a self-winding chronograph that represented a major advance.  In 1979 the company leadership transferred to the first non-Breitling family member when Ernest Schneider assumed leadership.  In 1984 the Chronomat line was introduced and soon became the company's best selling line.  In 1985 the company introduced the first of the specialty Aerospace line.  In 1998 the B1 model was introduced that included the combination of a mechanical chronograph and specialty microelectronic functions.  In 1999 all Breitling models were certified with the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute, a feat not attained by any other watch brand.  In 2001 the company introduced its "Superquartz" movements with improved accuracy and high reliability.
