As specialists in technical watches, Breitling originally designed certified chronometers primarily for aviation. In 1884 Leon Breitling, after founding his workshop developed chronographs intended for sports science and technology. In 1915, Breitling invented the first independent chronograph pushpiece, and by 1923 Breitling had added stop and start functions. In 1934 the brand created the second independent pushpiece that was adopted by all competitors.
Breitling is one of the few watch manufacturers to produce its own mechanical chronograph movement entirely manufactured in its own workshops. In 1969, the Swiss brand presented the world of horology with the first self-winding chronograph movement. In 1984, Breitling launched the famous Chronomat which has since become its leading model. In 2009, Breitling engineers created the Caliber 01.
