A Bit About Breitling Watches
The Swiss Breitling watch company was founded in 1884 and is known for both its aviator and luxury watches. Current collections include the Nivitimer, SuperOcean, and Chronomat families, the latter having celebrated its 100th anniversary in 1984. In 2021, nearly four decades on, the Chronomat still holds universal appeal as one of the luxury timepieces of choice for both men and women.
A distinction of most Breitling watches is their sheer size. At 40 to 42 mm, they enjoy a commanding presence and certainly make a statement as an impressive, highly functional instrument.
Breitling timepieces have appeared in movies (Raquel Welch wore one in Fathom as well as Sean Connery in Thunderball) and off-screen on the wrists of celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis, Leonardo DiCaprio, and John Travolta.
The unique Breitling Emergency watch is “the world’s first wristwatch equipped with an authentic dual-frequency distress beacon.” The Emergency is a SuperQuartz chronograph that features a miniaturized transmitter and an integrated antenna system. Activated by unscrewing a protective cap and extending a small antenna, the transmitter broadcasts a signal for 48 hours that can be received up to 100 miles away.
Breitling watches have been worn by astronauts and navigators. In 1962, astronaut Malcolm Scott Carpenter wore the Cosmonaute Breitling on his flight in the Aurora 7 capsule. In 1999, navigator Sir Richard Branson wore a Breitling on his round-the-world hot air balloon expedition.
Juha Kankkunen wore his Breitling in Northern Finland, breaking the world speed record on ice in a Bentley Continental Supersports car.
