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. Breitling began designing and making watches in 1884, when Leon Breitling founded his watch workshop on the Swiss Jura Mountains. The company was established shortly after the first successful flight in world history, and has had a long association with aviation. Breitling became well established as a premier Swiss watchmaker of luxury watches renowned for designing and producing exceptional chronographs, in fact, Breitling’s many groundbreaking innovations led to the development of the chronograph as we know it today.
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.
