Brand Spotlight: Breitling
There’s a sweet spot where the worlds of science, sport, and technology intersect, and that’s where Breitling, our Brand of the Month, has made its home since 1884. In order to meet their own exacting standards, Breitling manufactures its own movements in-house, and the quality of every watch is confirmed by its status as a COSC-certified chronometer, made in Switzerland. Discover for yourself the spirit of innovation, precision, and design excellence for which Breitling is renowned.
For 70 years and counting, the Breitling Navitimer has maintained its position as one of the world’s most beloved mechanical chronographs. With the Navitimer collection, Breitling is proud to introduce this watchmaking legend to a new generation of watch enthusiasts. A thinner case, relocated date window at 6 o’clock, and throwback logo are all new updates for 2022. Choose from black steel, steel , platinum, and 18K red gold cases. The Navitimer is available in a variety of complementary bezels, varied complications, dial features and colors, and stylish straps and bracelets, all calibrated to work together in perfect harmony.
Breitling debuted the original Premier collection in the 1940s with one singular idea—everyday elegance for men. The watches of the new Premier collection are more than worthy of the historic name, with sophisticated elegance, superb quality, and unrivaled performance. Since it was introduced, the “Pistachio” (pictured above) has been a hit. The perfect size and shade, it’s a watch that must be seen in person. Cases come in stainless steel or 18K red gold, with screwed-in case backs, and alligator or nubuck leather straps or steel bracelets. Choose from a variety of stunning dial colors, including the popular pistachio and salmon models.
If every superhero has an origin story, the Breitling Chronomat has one as heroic as any. Breitling originally created the Chronomat in the early 1980s to meet the stringent demands of the legendary Italian Frecce Tricolori aerobatic jet team. The pilots wanted a watch precise, rugged, and dependable enough for the cockpit, yet elegant enough to wear off duty for a night on the town. By Breitling’s own account, the Chronomat is the “watch that saved Breitling” during the Quartz Crisis when inexpensive quartz movements were sweeping away historical Swiss brands. Timepieces in the collection are available in 18K red gold or steel cases, with unidirectional ratcheted bezel and screwed-in case backs, some models with a gold bezel. Choose from a dazzling array of dial colors, with features such as an automatic chronograph movement, chronograph counters, and a date indicator.
Breitling Superocean and Superocean Heritage
The timepieces of the Breitling Superocean and Superocean Heritage collections are the dive watches that all other dive watches aspire to be. Originally designed for professional and military divers, they were quickly discovered and adopted by leisure divers and watch lovers in general. They are water-resistant to 200 meters with models for both men and women, but that’s just the start. With Superocean and Superocean Heritage, there are, quite literally, hundreds of size, color, and strap combinations to choose from. Whether you’re a seasoned diver, or you just appreciate a superlative timepiece, there’s one here for you.
One of Breitling’s earliest mottos was “Instruments for Professionals,” and given the technical expertise and cutting-edge technology that infuses every watch, it’s very much apropos today. The timepieces of the Professional collection are a case in point, equipped with all the features coveted by adventurers and watch lovers alike—2nd time zone indicator, day and date indicator, digital displays, chronograph and countdown timer complications, and more. We’d be remiss not to shine a special spotlight on the popular Professional Endurance Pro, water resistant to 100 meters with a bidirectional rotating bezel with compass scale, and screwed case back. Available in an array of bold color choices.
