Brief Brand History for :

In 1884, Léon Breitling founded his eponymous company in St. Imier, Switzerland. Eight years later, Breitling moved his work to a factory in La Chaux-de-Fonds. His specialty from the start was the production of chronographs. Over the years since its founding, the Breitling family patented a number of improvements to the chronograph mechanism. Eventually, Willy Breitling patented a chronograph with independent start/stop and zero reset pushers. This mechanism is the most commonly seen today. In the 1930s, Breitling supplied chronographs to the aviation industry and the Royal Air Force. In 1952, Breitling developed the iconic Navitmer design, which was popularized as a flight computer on the wrist. The Breitling family sold the name to Ernst Shneider in 1979. The Schneider family later sold a majority stake of Breitling to CVC Capital Partners in 2017.
