About

In 1923, Breitling created the first independent chronograph pushpiece – an innovation that completely transformed the calculation of flight times. In 1934, Breitling improved the formula once again, adding a second return-to-zero pushpiece, giving the chronograph the kind of stop/start functionality that remains industry standard to this day.

In the thirties, a fine reputation for precision timing led to a longstanding relationship with the Royal Air Force, who would use Breitling instruments in their triumphant fighter jets during World War II. Three years before the conclusion of the war, the Swiss watch making house changed the face of aviation once more with the Chronomat, the first wristwatch to feature a circular slide rule – a simple-yet-ingenious addition to the bezel that allowed pilots to calculate fuel consumption, air speed, rate of descent, and the conversion of air miles to nautical miles.

In 1952, this concept evolved into the Navitimer, a legendary piece that expanded Breitling’s client base to the US armed forces, and the pilots of many major international airlines. In 1969, Breitling brought about one of the biggest changes in the history of Swiss watchmaking, when they invented the selfwinding chronograph. Far from resting on the laurels of this breakthrough achievement, they continued to research and develop new ways of ensuring reliability and accuracy. This paid off in 1985, when they introduced the Breitling Aerospace a lightweight titanium piece with a groundbreaking electronic chronograph function.

This Exospace model combines analog and digital in a single dial, with an accompanying charger cable. Enquire for more details.
