Press release: WatchTime E-Special: Milestone Breitling Watches

Pilots rely on Breitling’s chronographs, but calendars, world timers and divers’ replica breitling also are part of the brand’s 130-plus-year history. Here are five important Breitling watches, including the Breitling Emergency, that helped define the brand’s identity from 1915 through the modern day. For the full list of 20 milestone Breitling watches, download the complete article from the WatchTime online shop, or check out the May-June issue of WatchTime, on sale May 13, 2014.

Launched in 1941, the Breitling Aeromarine replica was based on a patent document that Breitling submitted in 1940: patent number 217012 granted protection for an instrument-style wristwatch with a circular slide rule. This clever system made it quick and relatively easy to perform various measurements and mathematical operations, e. g., the conversion of speeds or distances from one unit of measurement to another, multiplication, division, and cross-multiplication.

This new timepiece attracted many aficionados in sports and industry, and technicians appreciated its special features, which made their work easier. Later versions of the replica Breitling Super Ocean with different cases and dials were the earliest ancestors of Breitling’s legendary Navitimer. The watch shown here contains Venus Caliber 175. A special feature of this watch is a counter for 45 elapsed minutes – a detail welcomed by soccer fans.
