Breitling

Breitling is synonymous with aviation, but at the heart of this pioneering relationship is its precision engineering and attention to detail. Leon Breitling founded his eponymous company – one of the few Swiss watchmakers that is still independently owned today – in 1884, and innovation was championed from the very beginning.

In the early '30s, Breitling created a 'speciality' that would change aviation: the onboard chronograph. Indispensable for pilots, they were used by the Royal Air Force on its WWII propeller-driven fighter planes. The onboard chronograph made Breitling a key player in the commercial aviation boom of the '50s and '60s, as the models became standard equipment on many planes.
