Breitling the chronograph pioneer

As a renowned specialist for technical watches Breitling plays in the development of the bracelet-chronograph an essential role.

As the watch 1915 to your high flight starts, Breitling belongs to the all first, a chronograph for the wrist present. Always tried to comfort and ergonomics, Breitling a brilliant idea into reality:

The crown of the discriminating pusher for the three chronograph functions Start, Stop, zero position - it is the birth of the first independent printer.

Breitling 1923 perfected this system and separates the functions. Start/stop is via the pusher at 2 pm, the zero position on the crown. This patented innovation is a crucial step forward because it allows several consecutive time to add measurements without the hand to zero.

From now on, sports competitions, flight times or scientific operations measure precisely to the second.

Breitling 1934 is in terms of functionality one step further and created the second independent pusher for the zero position. This patented invention gives the bracelet-chronograph current face.

This clock bracelet, one of the first-ever Breitling chronographs, located in a beautiful condition of our watchmaker completely revised

And with 2 years warranty
