Breitling is a leader in luxury watchmaking. Founded in 1884, the Swiss brand pioneered navigational tool watches and invented the modern chronograph. Over the years, pilots and adventurers alike have relied on the brand’s highly accurate timepieces. Today, Breitling remains one of the few independent watchmakers that manufactures its movements in house – each one is a COSC-certified chronometer. The brand’s collections centre on air, sea and land pursuits, reflecting its navigational history and combining classic watchmaking with contemporary design.
In the 1940s, Breitling launched the original Premiers, watches dedicated to everyday elegance. Now, the Premier collection introduces models whose elegance is worthy of their historic name and whose quality, performance, and design DNA are pure Breitling.
The 1960s was a decade of experimentation, fun, freedom and energy. Whether cruising on a motorcycle or revving up a sportscar, living life at full speed was the order of the day. Willy Breitling felt this change of pace and set out to design an unconventional chronograph that would capture the verve of era. He called it the Top Time.
