Breitling: The Aviation Connection
Breitling has shared a close relationship with aviation. Wristwatches for aviators provided the ease of checking the time without compromising the safety of flying. The trend charmed others who had never set foot inside a cockpit but loved the ideas of freedom and flying associated with wrist watches. Watches with bezels attracted a predominantly male following.
The Breitling Navimeter 1952 helped with aviation calculations through the bezel. Soon after WWI, wristwatches became ubiquitous for all aviators. These watches could perform all tasks and calculations pilots had to perform during flight.

The brand supports this NGO through the launch of the Superocean Heritage Chronograph 44. The launch was a part of the huge beach cleaning campaign in Bali. Over 100 people helped clean up hundreds of kilos of garbage from the beaches.
According to Georges Kern, Breitling CEO, “Our oceans are at risk. everyone knows it, but very few act on it. By partnering with the Ocean Conservancy we intend to show that everyone has a part to play to create a better future for the next generations.”
Breitling is one of the brands that exudes elegance and class, without losing its touch with reality.
