Swiss family business specializes in chronographs
Léon Breitling initially focused on chronographs. In the 1880s, he even received a patent for a model. This model, which even received awards, brought the company from Switzerland a not exactly bad reputation. The number of employees grew.
Another success of the company was when Breitling made it to a tachymeter at the beginning of the 20th century. Thus, it was possible to measure how fast something is, the range of measurement was 15-150 km/h. So it was suitable for finding out how fast a car was going.
Later, when Léon Breitling was no longer alive, his son Gaston Breitling took care of the company. When he was no longer alive, however, his son was still too young to continue the business. As a result, someone from outside took care of the company for the time being. Eventually, however, Willy Breitling took over the company. And he, too, celebrated successes: he wanted to patent a chronograph wristwatch that had not only one, but even two pushers. At the end of the 1970s, however, the Breitling family business was sold.
