It is no coincidence that Breitling is now instantly recognisable as a leader in the production of highly technical watches and chronographs. Ever since Léon Breitling opened his workshop in the Swiss Jura in 1884, the brand has devoted itself to creating precision instruments for leading professionals.
1984 saw the birth of the Chronomat, which has gone on to become Breitling’s leading model. From 2009 all Chronomat models have been powered by the Breitling B01, the brands first fully in-house movement. Breitling now offer a 5 year warranty on watches fitted with their in-house B01 & B04 movements on purchases made from January 2012.
