An expert manufacturer and pioneer of highly technical watches, Breitling has been a major player in the development of the wrist chronograph and is a leader in this feature. This Breitling watch is the combination of mechanical precision and superior materials and construction, which has become a hallmark of this world-renowned company. Producing timepieces of immeasurable quality, Breitling is one of the last remaining independent Swiss watchmakers.
Continuing to innovate for professional flyers, in the mid-1990s Breitling introduced the Emergency, which features a built-in microtransmitter that broadcasts on the 121.5 MHz aircraft emergency frequency. This is used as a backup to airborne beacons, and its signal can be picked up within a range of up to 90 nautical miles. The Emergency has been put to the test on several occasions, most famously in rescuing two British pilots who crashed their helicopter in Antarctica.
Breitling has also been at the forefront in advancing the mechanics of the chronograph timepiece. In 1923, it was the first watch manufacturer to introduce an independent push piece for the chronograph, enabling the start and return-to-zero function (previously performed by the winding-crown). Then in 1934, Breitling added a second push piece to the chronograph enabling either cumulative or incremental time recording.
