Find the Breitling Watch of yourDreams.Grab this Link: http://www.mukluksfitflop.org ==== ====Every wristwatch fan in the world knows that Switzerland is the place where it all started. TheBreitling watch company is no exception. In 1884, Leon Breitling decided to take his dream forquality-crafted precision timepieces to the next level. He founded his company with the specificpurpose of developing chronographs and counters for scientific applications. However, his brand became so popular in just a few short years that Breitling was forced torelocate to La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1892, due to massive growth. This was the Mecca of the watchworld, and Leon held on until 1914, when he passed away and left his company in the hands of hisson Gaston. The younger Breitling picks up where his father left off, and only a short year later, Breitlingreleased their first chronograph wristwatch. Gaston would continue to make varied importantdevelopments as a watchmaker. He even supplied the first wristwatch instruments to aviators. Breitling developed the firstindependent chronograph push piece in 1923, and in 1934, Gaston's son, Willy Breitling, tookcontrol of the company and added a second push piece to the classic watch, enabling cumulativeor incremental recording (current configuration). Two years later, Breitling became the officialwatch supplier of the Royal Air Force. During the 1940s, Breitling went overseas with their timepieces and supplied the American armedforces with watches. Willy moved the company into the future and created the "Navitimer," awristwatch with an integrated navigation computer in 1954. This chronograph would be the first worn by pilots all around the globe. Even astronaut ScottCarpenter wore the Breitling "Cosmonaute" chronograph during an orbital flight in 1962. The brandcontinued to work towards even more innovative watches over the next few years, and in 1969,they introduced a self-winding chronograph: A very impressive technical feat that represents anenormous breakthrough, not only in the Swiss watch industry, but the world. Willy Breitling passed away 10 years later, and the company was purchased by Ernest Schneiderin 1979. When Breitling launched their 100th year anniversary "Chronomat," the watch took offinstantly and would eventually become their best-seller to date. Throughout the rest of the century, Breitling continued to push the envelope and introduced amultitude of watches ranging in style and function. In 2000, Breitling opened a new headquartersin Grenchen, Switzerland.
