The story of Breitling watches began in 1884 when Leon Breitling opened a watchmaking workshop in the Jura Mountains of Switzerland. Primarily designed as aviation watches, Breitlings are now just as known for their precision timekeeping as they are high-end luxury timepieces. The Breitling chronograph, specifically its Bentley collection
, has become quite the status symbol.
Breitling watches are famous for three things: their precision, their enduring style, and their near indestructibility. These identifying characteristics are intrinsic to the Breitling brand, and render them some of the most coveted watches in the world. Breitling has some excellent collections including Avenger, Bentley, Chronomat, Galactic, Navitimer and superocean.
