Founded in 1884 by Leon Breitling, Breitling remains one of the last family-owned, independent Swiss watch brands. The company develops and manufactures its own mechanical chronograph movement in its Swiss workshops, using the most advanced computers in conjunction with highly skilled craftsmen. Every watch is 100% Swiss Made.
Breitling’s connection with aviation runs deep. The company is the only major watch brand to equip all models with chronometer-certified movements, the most precise. In aviation, precision, quality, and durability are all necessary for safety. Breitling watches go through numerous tests of quality throughout the production process to ensure that they meet their high standards, even under adverse conditions.
