Watch : Breitling Reinnovates Its 1915 Innovation

FLIGHT OF THE CENTURY. It was only around a century ago when watchmakers began to develop wristwatches.

Among those early pioneers was Breitling, a Swiss watch specialist that played a pivotal role in the  development of chronographs. Back in 1915 Breitling took a daring leap by reinventing the pushers on technical watches. Gaston Breitling, the founder’s son, perfected this innovation by setting a standard of independent pushers separate from the crown. That innovation is now reinvented in Breitling’s new 3mm Transocean Chronograph 1915, featuring an in-house Breitling caliber B14 and a vintage dial design with either a mesh steel bracelet or a leather strap.
