Timeless, Innovative and Quality Driven

Breitling watches have a distinct look and are arranged into 5 timeless collections, namely the Navitimer, the Superocean, the Transocean, the Chronomat and the Professional. Like other prestigious, luxury watch companies, Breitling often makes partnerships which influence the style of the current collections.

In 2003, the company partnered with Team Jet, cementing the company’s aviation ties. New technological heights were achieved when the company took on Team Jet as ambassadors and a certain level of human excellence were added to the brand.

Breitling has also partnered with Norton, a proud English motorcycle manufacturer. The sleek elements of their motorcycles inspired new elements for the Breitling watch. Both companies also have a lot in common in terms of their approach to their respective industries. Innovation and staying ahead of their game are entrenched in their history and is reflected in the work they do.

The latest partnership was formed in 2018 and lead to Breitling organising beach clean-ups all across the globe. By partnering up with Ocean Conservancy, an organisation involved with the global push for cleaner oceans, Breitling not only donates a part of its proceeds to the pursuit of cleaner oceans, but it is also actively involved in education programmes.

Techniques and Chronographs

When the company was first founded, chronographs were much in demand. Used in industrial sectors as well as by the military, chronographs played a huge role in many areas. Leon Breitling patented an incredibly simple but highly functional model of a chronograph and quickly distinguished himself from his competitors. The design was sleek, the manufacturing process completely simplified compared to other chronographs at the time and it required little maintenance.

After Leon passed away, his son inherited the business and with a creative flair reminiscent of his father, he introduced the now popular and much-loved Breitling watches. In the years since more watches have been designed and manufactured and today, luxury Breitling watches are among the best in the world.
