Great Read About History of Breitling Watches

Obsessed with Breitling Watches? A new book by Benno Richter could satisfy your cravings. Entitled “Breitling: The History of a Great Brand of Watches 1884 to the Present”, this hardcover book is available at Amazon.com for $37.96. The book covers Breitling famous start with the Breitling Navitimer and a calculator which allowed pilots to necessary to carry out calculations during flight. The newly revised book goes through Breitling products starting in 1884 and gives a great look into the company’s 100 years worth of watch making history.

Inside you’ll find photos, old catalogs, advertising materials, and informative text. Another amazing part of this about Breitling watches is the ability to use the reference numbers to locate individual watches chronologically. With 173 pages of exciting history, a Breitling enthusiast will enjoy this amazing journey.

Randy Given, a top 500 reviewer on Amazon.com, gives the book 4 stars and comments:

This has some good stuff, but it is for a mixed audience, so none may be fully satisfied. For horologists, there is a fair amount of movements shown, with many of them “exploded” to show all of their parts. For historians, there is a lot of good old-time advertising and photos. For collectors, of course, you get to see a whole bunch of the product line back over a hundred years ago. The price list is minimal and ten years out of date, so it is not as relevant, but not completely useless either. Still, not a bad offering.

A must read for Breitling watch enthusiast around the globe.

Breitling Avenger Seawolf for Divers

One of the first things a watch enthusiast would brag about if he/she had an Avenger Seawolf would be the fact that it is water resistant for up to 10,000 feet.

For example, if you are diving and the pressure exceeds 3 bars, the valve on Breitling’s Avenger Seawolf will automatically evacuate the helium that is built up so that the case won’t explode!
