A History of Breitling Watches
1884 - In St. Imier, in the Jura mountains of Switzerland, Leon Breitling opened a workshop specialising in making chronographs and precision counters for scientific and industrial purposes. In 1914 Leon Breitling died and the company was passed over to his son Gaston, a year later Gaston created the first wristwatch chronograph and subsequently provided pilots with the first wrist instruments. By 1923 Breitling had developed the first ever independent chronograph pushpiece.Gastons son, Willy Breitling took over control of the company in 1932 and in 1936 Breitling became the official supplier to the Royal Air Force. The Chronomat was introduced in 1942 - the first chronograph to be fitted with a circular slide rule. The company also widened its professional clientele to include the American armed forces. 1954 saw the creation of the Navitimer, a wrist instrument equipped with the famous navigation computer. This super chronograph became a firm favoutite among the pilots across the globe. By that stage, Breitling had already supplied the major international airlines with cockpit clocks. In 1962, Astronaut Scott Carpenter wore the Cosmonaught chronograph during his orbital fligh aboard the Aurora 7 space capsule.
1969 saw Breitling introduce the first ever self winding chronograph. This technical feat represented a major breakthrough for the entire swiss watch industry. 1979 saw the takeover of Breitling from the founders grandson Willy. Ernest Schneider took the helm.
In 1984 The Cronomat was launched and marked the return of the chronograph. It became the best selling line in the Breitling collection, a position it has held ever since. Soon after that in 1985, the Breitling Aerospace was launched.
Today, Breitling is still established in La Chaux-de-Fonds, the town where Leon Breitling opened his first chronograph factory 110 years earlier.
