Why We Love it

Breitling has long been purveyor of chronographs to pilots, and the original Breitling Chronomat models of 1942 were built from the ground up to be no-nonsense instruments for use in the cockpit.

Since then, Breitling has exponentially expanded their line of aviation-centric timepieces, moving into more mechanically (and visually) complex chronographs, as well as more straightforward, legible designs such as the Avenger line.

This Reference A32390, a Breitling Avenger II 43, dates to 2015 and features a 43mm stainless steel case with a bidirectional steel bezel, a sapphire crystal, signed crown, unidirectional ratcheting timing bezel, a luminous black dial with applied indices and a matching handset, a red GMT arrow hand, framed date window at 3 o’clock and a signed black rubber strap with a signed steel, twin-trigger deployant clasp.

In great condition, this is a hell of a good value for a contemporary pilot's watch, ready to endure many adventures - and a great opportunity to take a contemporary Breitling for a spin to see what they're all about!

Brand Story

+
Breitling, one of the most illustrious names in the annals of the “tool watch,” was founded by Léon Breitling in 1892. And though the firm is no longer operated by its namesake family, it still produces some of the world’s best pilot’s watches, many of which now feature in-house movements.

The company first started manufacturing wrist chronographs as early as the 1930s. In 1936 they became an official supplier to military forces of the United Kingdom and Canada. While perhaps best known for the Navitimer and Chronomat lines — which were used heavily by pilots of many nations — Breitling also produced scores of other chronograph models that merit consideration, such as the more affordable Top Time and Premier. Dive watches, such as the Super Ocean, are also part of the company’s offerings.

The late 1970s was a turbulent time for the Swiss watch industry, and many storied houses were swept away by the Quartz Crisis. By 1978, Breitling was in trouble due to the illness of its leader, Willy Breitling, and the steep decline in sales that had cut through the entire industry. Unable to keep operations going, the company was liquidated, and parts, toolings and naming rights were sold off.
Between 1979 and 2017, Breitling continued under the ownership of the Schneider family. In 2017 an 80% stake in the firm was sold to a British private equity firm, with the remaining 20% sold in 2018. In 2019, the company released the caliber B01, an in-house, automatic chronograph movement that’s since found its way into the Chronomat and Navitimer collections, bringing the tale of this famed manufacturer full circle.
