Breitling SA, which is more commonly known as simply Breitling, is a luxury wrist watch manufacturer that is based in Grenchen, Switzerland. They are primarily known for their production, as many of their models are designed specifically for either divers or aviators. Their chronographs and sport watches have been popular among groups such as the military and the U.S. Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. Breitling watches have a distinct style, and they are known for servicing the military and providing them with often customized group orders.
One of the first timepieces Breitling created for aviators is the Navitimer, which was developed for the U.S. Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, also known as the A.O.P.A. It was innovative and designed for pilots and aviators to be able to do necessary calculations for flight, such as rate of climb or descent, conversion of miles to nautical miles or kilometers, fuel consumption, average speed, and distance travelled.
