Classic and Classy Breitling Watches

Looking for a new watch to carry you through the new year? Start with a gorgeous Breitling watch, a luxury brand of Swiss watches, which specializes in watches. Founded way back in 1884, the company's watches are separated into three categories: diving watches (known as Superocean), aviation watches (known as Navitimer) and luxury watches (Breitling for Bentley). Their polished case and bracelet, and their large watch dials are designed to be easy readability have long characterized Breitling watches. Most Breitling watches have created by a self-winding mechanism that is purely mechanical, while other models of Breitling watches films complications. All watches made by the brand are made in Switzerland, despite the German-sounding name of the company. In early 1940, the company revolutionized the watch industry by adding a circular slide rule to the bezel of their chronograph models - these watches have been designed for use by aircraft pilots. This watch has evolved into the now famous Navitimer model, and during the years 1950 and 1960, this watch was offered by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association with the association's logo on the dial.

The next innovation in the world Breitling came courtesy of the famous astronaut Scott Carpenter, who approached the company in 1961 and suggested that they should incorporate a dial twenty-four hours instead of their usual twelve hour dial. For Carpenter, this innovation was a necessity, as it was one of the first Mercury astronauts of the space program and demanded a watch that worked regardless of whether it was day or night, that space travel has eliminated the distinction between the two. Breitling has agreed, and produced a model Navitimer Special Carpenter to carry on his flight to space in 1962.

Many Breitling watches are specialized - like the Navitimer was originally created for pilots and was then refined for Carpenter flight in space, the Breitling Emergency watch contains a radio transmitter, which been worn by civilian aviators. This watch is also used by many in the army, and under normal conditions (flat terrain or calm seas), the clock signal can be received up to 90 nautical miles by a research aircraft. The importance of this innovation was discovered in January of 2003, when two British pilots crashed their helicopter in Antarctica and were rescued by the team only after they have activated their Breitling Emergency watches. The plane that saved the two men could not find them after picking up signals from their watches. Although this watch is generally used by military men and women and drivers, it is available for purchase by ordinary citizens as well, but normal people trying to buy the watch must sign a letter of agreement stating that they will bear the costs arising from a rescue intervention should they trigger their distress signal on the clock.

Although many Breitling watches, such as those described above, seem too technical and not suitable for the average person, the truth is, the brand is also known for producing timepieces simply beautiful and functional. Although expensive, Breitling watches are produced by the kind of watches that stand the test of time, making them great gifts and heirlooms true.
