Description

The modern chronograph watch would not function as it does today without Breitling’s influence. Léon Breitling founded the company in 1884 already manufacturing innovative chronographs.  After his death in 1914, his son Gaston took control and produced one of the world’s first wrist chronographs with a separate pusher.  Gaston’s son Willy introduced the two-pusher chronograph and the iconic Chronomat in 1942, which added a slide rule with a chronograph.  In 1952 they produced the Navitimer with a built-in slide rule that became the official pilot’s watch for the AOPA pilot union. Astronaut Scott Carpenter found his Navitimer so useful that he asked Breitling to modify the watch to use a 24-hour dial, which he then wore into space in 1962 aboard a Mercury capsule.  To celebrate his 25th anniversary as head of the company, Willy also introduced the SuperOcean diver’s watch with a water-resistance of 200 meters.  Clearly, any admirer of chronographs should become familiar with Breitling.
