Breitling Montbrilliant celebrates the heyday of propeller aviation in the
1940s and 50s when splendid men made history in their magnificent flying machines.
In their endeavors, the crucial factor of time was being provided by the Breitling
watches. These watches were made in the building on Montbrilliant Street
in the heights of La Chaux-de-Fonds a facility of Breitling from 1892 to 1979. It
was in this structure the onboard chronographs for the pilots were crafted which
earned the company the status as the official supplier of time pieces to the world
of aviation. The Montbrilliant spirit is captured in these chronographs:
the slender hands, a hundredth of an hour indicator and the captivating B in 18
K gold are part of the tradition.
Breitling Montbrilliant 01 is a collectorâ€™s piece equipped with Caliber 01

of black and silver dial.
The Breitling Montbrilliant Datora watches are the fine incarnations of that
watch which were best sellers in the 1940s, the noble chronographs endowed with

great craftsmen of ancient fame who did wonders with self winding mechanical movement
is clearly visible for all to see in these watches where the day and month are displayed

1/100th hour marker. The watches also show the military time in 24 hours pattern.

a limited space.
The legendary aspect of Breitling is trumpeted in the
. The aeronautical flavor of the Breitling is the dominant motif is
reiterated in the watch which exhibits on the case back a conversion scale for the

on a modern watch it serves the purpose of delineating the glorious days of Breitling
when the watches met the real time needs of the pilots.
