About Breitling:

In 1884 Léon Breitling established Breitling in Grenchen – the Canton of Solothurn, in Switzerland. Breitling is one of very few independent Swiss watchmakers left.

Léon Breitling intended for his company to specialize in the field of timers and chronographs – precision instruments to be used primarily within science, sports and industry.

About Breitling Chronomat 44:

“44” as in Breitling Chronomat 44, represents the collection’s 44mm case diameter.

Breitling Chronomat is the flagship of Breitling – the pride and crown jewel of the brand. It’s the Chronomat Collection that ultimately defines Breitling as a brand.

In 2009, Breitling produced and released their very first in-house made mechanical/automatic chronograph movements. The Chronomat Collection is special for two reasons: it employs Breitling’s in-house made movements, and it’s a combined pilots watch and divers watch.

Since the release of Breitling’s in-house made movements, the brand has seriously become a competitor of Rolex and Omega.

Breitling typically makes sporty looking, large, hefty, masculine professional tool watches with an instrumental look to them, and the Breitling Chronomat is the very embodiment of Breitling’s philosophy and approach to watchmaking.
