These committed individuals, from pioneering pilots and commercial aviation leaders to influencers and style-drivers, appreciate strikingly fresh watches that still respect the brand’s design codes. Every day, they challenge the ordinary with their exploits in the air, from space travel to precision aerial performance and the new-age challenge of drone competitions.
About Breitling Watches*
Breitling is a Swiss watchmaker found in 1884 by Leon Breitling. Breitling are renowned for precision-made chronometers.
Historically, Breitling sourced movements from suppliers such as Valjoux, ETA, and Venus rather than producing movements in-house. In 2009 Breitling developed the B01, an in-house self-winding, column wheel chronograph movement, used in the Breitling Chronomat 01 and subsequently Navitimer 01.
Interesting Breitling Bond Fact:
In the 1965 James Bond movie Thunderball, Bond is given a Breitling Top Time by Q, who tells him it is also a geiger counter. The geiger counter in the watch enables Bond to track down two stolen nuclear warheads. After the movie was filmed the watch disappeared. In 2012 it resurfaced in a car boot sale in England where it was bought for GB£25. It later sold at auction at Christie’s auction house for over GB£100,000.
