Breitling: Get to Know the Swiss Luxury Watchmaker

Breitling’s aviation-inspired watches have a cult following and some seriously talented ambassadors (ahem, Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron). Read on to learn how the brand got its start and the boldest watches available from them right now.

Breitling: Get to Know the Swiss Luxury Watchmaker

A go-to timepiece is a wardrobe staple, and Breitling’s collections are renowned for pairing art and science for everyday wear. In 1881, Breitling got its start as a producer of aviation instruments for aircraft and professional grade watches for pilots. Combining the highly innovative technology with an ultra-sporty, masculine aesthetic cemented the watchmaker as a favorite among not only pilots and military personnel, but A-list celebs and watch aficionados as well.

The Swiss luxury watchmaker specializes in technical watches, their reliability and precision is unmatched. Each new collection builds on the previous one, with their latest lines being the ultimate combination of sport performance, technology, and rugged elegance. Even the collection names—Navitimer, Night Mission, Aviator 8—sound like action packed missions or secret spy assignments. Whether you’re heading out for a deep ocean dive, a soaring flight, or a high-pressure day at the office, Breitling watches are the perfect wingman for any adventure.

For the Diver

First released in 1951 for professional and military divers, the SuperOcean collection quickly became a favorite among leisure divers and watch enthusiasts. Its connection to marine life can be seen in its pops of submarine yellow, cool blue, and technical orange.

For the Pilot

Perhaps most known for its highly technical dial, the Navitimer debuted in 1952. Its circular aviation slide rule allowed pilots to compute complex calculations while in flight. How cool is that?

For the 007

This super rugged design is all about reliability, with maximum functionality and superb shock resistance. The Night Mission design has a bold aesthetic and boasts a lightweight case, making it a standout for functionality. It features a 45mm titanium case with either a black or khaki dial with a matching military leather strap.

For the History Buff

The Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Mosquito is the contemporary interpretation of Breitling’s first pilot’s watch. The stunning design honors the British De Havilland Mosquito, the aircraft whose wooden construction made it one of the fastest of all fleets during WWII. The rich leather strap echoes the warm, smooth colour of wood and the red and orange accents match the markings from the original Mosquito.

For the Urban Adventurer

Like other Breitling designs, the Premier is the modern evolution of one of their classic styles, the 1942 Premiers. Everyday elegance is at the core of this collection. The limited edition Wheels and Waves is inspired by the outdoors setting just outside the city. Its cool and energetic aesthetic incorporates elements from moto, surf, and skate cultures.
