WHO THEY ARE Founded in Saint-Imier, Switzer­land, by Leon Bre­itling in 1884, it spe­cialises in chrono­graphs and pre­ci­sion counters for avi­a­tion use. CLAIM TO FAME The brand’s 1942 Nav­itimer – the first watch with a cir­cu­lar slid­erule bezel (used in avi­a­tion for pre­ci­sion) – be­came the of­fi­cial watch of the Air­craft Own­ers and Pi­lots As­so­ci­a­tion in the US. Amer­i­can astro­naut Scott Car­pen­ter wore the Nav­itimer 24-hour model 806 into space. In 1957, Bre­itling launched the Su­pe­r­o­cean se­ries for pro­fes­sional divers. WHAT’S HOT The Bre­itling Emer­gency II, an ad­ven­ture watch with a dual-chan­nel emer­gency satel­lite trans­mit­ter, which sends dis­tress signals that can be picked up by global search and res­cue teams.
