Explore the Breitling collections
Founded in 1884 by Leon Breitling, the company was conceptualized as a manufacturer of counters and chronographs for industrial and scientific purposes. In less than a decade, it became apparent that Breitling had become a “hit” because of its innovation, design, and functionality. Some of the company’s most notable clients include the American armed forces and major international airlines.
Breitling have shared all the finest moments in the conquest of the skies thanks to its sturdy, reliable and high-performance instruments. One of the world's only major watch brands to equip all its models with chronometer-certified movements, the ultimate token of precision, Breitling is also one of the rare companies to produce its own mechanical chronograph movements, entirely developed and manufactured in its own workshops. The company is moreover one of the last remaining Swiss watch brands independent of any watchmaking group.
