Leon Breitling founded Breitling Watches in 1884 and the company has soon founded its specialisation and started with the producing of special aviation watches for pilots. Their most popular model, the Navitimer, was first released in 1952 and it contained all the best featured for flight plan calculations and have become the most favoured timepiece for pilots. Breitling was soon named the “official supplier for the aviation world” and Breitling Watches have become partners with the AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association). Breitling released watches with both their logo and solely with the logo of the AOPA. Then Breitling came up with the idea to provide its watches with a 24 hour dial instead of the normal 12-hour dial. This dial method was much more useful for the astronauts. This timepiece was released under the name Cosmonaute Navitimer. The Breitling Emergency version was also released this time. This watch has included a radio transmitter that could emit the distress beacon, which can be heard from 90 nautical miles. Breitling has also made several great chronographs. Not too long ago, Breitling had a campaign together with the British car brand Bentley.
