Leon Breitling founded Breitling SA in 1884 which was passed on to his son Gaston in 1914.  Breitling began with primarily chronographs which were in high demand at the time.  In the 1950’s through the 1960’s, the company introduced the Breitling Navitimer and Breitling Chronomat.  in 1979, the company was bought out by Ernest Schneider whose family ran it until 2017.  Breitling watches have always been highly sought after by collectors for the past few decades.  Some iconic Breitling models are the Breitling Navitimer, Breitling Superocean Heritage, Breitling Superocean, Breitling Chronomat, Breitling Avenger, Breitling Cosmonaute, Breitling Colt, Breitling Aviator 8, Breitling Professional, and Breitling  Galactic.
