Leon Breitling (of Breitling Watches) started off small with a workshop specializing in chronographs and precision counters for industrial and scientific purposes. In 1914, his son Gaston continued in the tradition and created the first wristwatch chronograph and handed them over to the pilots for the first trial. In 1969 Breitling introduced the first ever self-winding chronograph.
A century past and Breitling has crafted some of the world's most recognized watches.
In 1952 Breitling launched the Navitimer collection. Models in this collection are the Navitimer 50th Anniversary, Navitimer Heritage, Navitimer Breitling Fighters, Navitimer Olympus, Cosmonaute, Montbrillant and Montbrillant Datora. The Navitimer is a wrist instrument, equipped with the famous "navigation computer" capable of handling all calculations called for by a flight plan. The Navitimer has become the standard watch for pilots, the world over. 116 years after its creation, Breitling is still one of the most wanted luxury watch in the world.
The Windrider collection consists of models Chronomat, Chronomat Lontitude, Wings Automatic, Crosswind, Crosswind Racing, Crosswind Special, Headwind, Callisto, Callistino, Blackbird and B-Class.
The Professional collection includes Emergency, Emergency Mission, Aerospace, B-1, B-2 and Hercules.
Breitling Bentley 6.75, Breitling Bentley GT, Bentley Motors Chronograph and the Breitling Bentley Le Mans are the exclusive chronographs launched after Breitling partnered with Bentley.

The Breitling House expands its historic collections with passing years. Some of its best sellers like the Crosswind, Chronomat, Wings, Navitimer, Montbrillant and Rattrapante, are masterpieces.
Apparently, the Breitling Chronomat has some interesting features. It had a flat profile as against the large chronographs have lugs that bend downward toward the wrist. In this, Breitling instead put the "bend" in the lug end of the bracelet. The second interesting aspect of the Chronomat design is the screw-on markers at noon, 15, 30 and 45 minutes on the bezel. The Breitling Chronomat has no resemblance to the original (which looked much like a present-day Navitimer Montbrillant).
The Breitling era came to an end in 1979. Ernest Schneider took over the company and introduced watch lines for other professions such as yachting and diving, whilst continuing to focus on building high quality, high precision watches for the aviation industry. The new Chronomat (1984), the Aerospace (1985), the Emergency (1995) and the B-1 (1998) were the new models launched under this company.
What makes a Breitling brilliant? As Breitling claims, their watches are "instruments for professionals." Breitling gives you an "alighted" feel. The spirit of being high above the ground, the adventure, the risk and the guts is all encompassed into the Breitling. A high precision watch with specialized functions is the essence of Breitling.
