Breitling is a brand of Swiss watches produced by Breitling SA, a private company headquartered in Grenchen, Canton of Solothurn, originally founded in Saint-Imier, Bernese Jura by Léon Breitling in 1884.

The watchmaker offers high-end Certified Chronometers designed primarily for aviation use. Breitling's watches offer aviation functions, though their chronograph functions have become more of status symbols than practically applied tools. They typically have a large face e.g. The Breitling for Bentley Motors edition has a 48 mm Case Diameter for better visibility and to allow display of more information on the analog dials. Many models feature an automatic winding mechanism that is purely mechanical i.e. Using no electronic components. Many Breitling watches are equipped with additional functions such as the flyback function, split-second, moon phase, date display and other applications.

All Breitling watches are manufactured in Switzerland and are made from Swiss components. Raw materials are obtained from ETA and Valjoux and are modified in the Breitling Chronometrie Workshops, before undergoing COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres) certification. As of 2009, Breitling now makes manufacture movements, designs, manufacture and assemble the Breitling watches completely in-house.

Quartz models such as the Breitling Aeromarine Colt start at $2,055.00 on a rubber strap, while typical prices of mechanical, steel cased models are $7,300 (US) for the Breitling for Bentley Motors model. The expense is due to the exclusivity of the Bentley trademark, as well as the 38 jewel self-winding movement as these steel cased models are more expensive than some of Breitling's Titanium or Gold models. Some special edition models also include diamonds on various parts of the watch. I.E. Diamond Bezel, Diamond Bracelet, etc.

Breitling was a sponsor of Team Bentley during their Le Mans 24 Hours campaign, running from 2001-2003. To commemorate this event, Breitling created the Limited Edition Breitling Bentley 24 Le Mans Watch. The serial number A25362 is a real serial number for a Breitling for Bentley Motors watch, though it is well advised to make sure that is the serial number on your watch, and if buying one of the watches it wise to thoroughly check it out before hand as there are many fakes produced.
