In 1942 Breitling presented the Chronomat model , a chronograph with slide rule and manual winding, which was officially introduced in the U.S. Army Air Force. Its name is a combination between "chronograph" and "mathematics" (not "automatic"!), which refers to the calculations possible with this kind of watch.
The best-known model of the company after the Chronomat is the Navitimer with built-in slide rule, developed in 1952.
In 1986 a new edition was brought to market. This wrist chronograph is unique in its ability to achieve correct air traffic control, thus it can replace an on-board instrument. With its helpful time measurement, you can perform speed calculations and measurement of fuel consumption. The Navitimer is chosen as the official pilot's watch by the pilot union AOPA, whose logo adorns the first models.
In 1962 Breitling developed the Cosmonaute, which was worn by the astronaut Scott Carpenter during his space mission with the Aurora 7 capsule on 24 May 1962. This watch has a 24 hour dial.
Today Breitling produces five main ranges of watches:
- Navitimer — which has two series
- Windrider — with one well-known model
- Chronomat and its numerous relatives; apart from the Navitimer models all the Breitling pilot's watches are in this range.
- Aeromarine — diving watches, including the well-known models
- Professional — smaller series with professionally orientated models, e.g. with the
- Expedition watch Emergency and the
- Skyracer chronograph.
- Breitling for Bentley

We know the value of security, so every pre-owned watch we sell comes with a 12-month warranty alongside any remaining manufacturer's warranty. Should your watch develop any issues, through no fault of your own, then we shall repair it free of charge for the duration of your warranty. Please note our warranty doesn’t apply to new watches.
How Does the Warranty Work
- If you have any remaining manufacturer's warranty, then you can send your watch to them for repair either via us or via an authorized retailer.
- If your watch is covered by a Swiss Luxury Watches warranty only, then we will undertake the repairs in conjunction with the manufacturer where necessary.
- If your watch is not covered by any warranty then you can send it to us for a quote. Any work undertaken by us will be covered by a further 24-month Swiss Luxury Watches warranty.
Please note that our warranty covers manufacturing and mechanical defects only.
Our warranty is subject to the same terms and conditions as the manufacturer’s warranty. The standard manufacturer’s warranty does not cover theft or loss of the watch. Normal wear-and-tear or damage caused to the watch by accidents or mishandling/mistreatment are also excluded, as well as damage caused to a watch due to submersion in water which is against the manufacturer's guidelines. One particular example not covered by the warranty is the wear of the watch strap.
Any modification of a watch by the addition or substitution of components with aftermarket products which have not been provided by the manufacturer will also invalidate the warranty. The use of aftermarket components can severely compromise the technical performance, reliability and waterproofness of the watch.
Warranty return packs are sent directly to the service center, however you are free to deliver your warranty return to any Swiss Luxury Watches premises where it will be forwarded along to the service center directly. Please be advised that warranty return packs must be adequately insured at your own expense. The warranty is in addition to your statutory and common law rights.
