About Breitling


Breitling SA is a Swiss luxury watchmaker founded in 1884 in Saint-Imier, Switzerland, by Léon Breitling. The company is known for its precision-made chronometers designed for aviators and is based in Grenchen, Switzerland. The company's mechanical or quartz movements are chronometer certified by the COSC and are usually marketed towards either diving or aviation. Aviation models offer aviation functions largely as complications, since their function in aviation has largely been replaced by modern electronic instruments. The styling of Breitling watches consists of polished cases, bracelets, and large watch faces for improved readability. Many models have an automatic winding mechanism with complications.

Superocean Heritage

Inspired by the original Superocean from the 1950s, the Superocean Heritage combines iconic design features with a modern touch. Sporty and elegant, the Superocean Heritage is a true embodiment of style at sea.

Offered either with a matching mesh bracelet, or a “mesh-styled” rubber strap fitting a folding buckle, this Superocean Heritage is powered by the Breitling Manufacture Caliber B20, a COSC-certified chronometer based on the Tudor Caliber MT5612.


Stylish yet elegant, the modern-retro inspired Chronomat  is the versatile sporty and chic watch for any occasion. It is available in quartz and automatic, an array of metal cases, from cool stainless steel, to goes-with-everything bicolor, or even luxurious 18k red gold.

Featuring Breitling’s iconic and comfortable “Rouleaux” bracelet with a butterfly clasp, the Chronomat is powered by the Breitling Caliber 77, a COSC-certified SuperQuartz™ chronometer.


Breitling SA was founded in Saint-Imier by Léon Breitling in 1884.When Breitling died in 1914, the business passed to his son, Gaston, and then to his grandson, Willy, in 1935. Willy's children were not interested in pursuing the family business, so the Breitling factory in La Chaux de Fonds closed in December 1978. Willy, already in poor health, died in May 1979.Ernst Schneider, owner of the Sicura Company in Grenchen, bought the Breitling name from the founding family in 1979. Production of watches moved to the Sicura factory, which later changed its name to Montres Breitling AG and then Breitling in 1994.
