Breitling's status as official supplier to the world of aviation first came about with the RAF in the 1930s; with the development of on-board chronographs for use in prop-driven fighter planes during WWII. Further developments in watchmaking were made with the first wrist-worn chronograph for pilots and this set the scene for launch of the iconic Navitimer in 1952; as a model equipped with a circular slide-rule able to measure average speed and productivity rate, it was soon named the official watch of the AOPA (Airline Owners and Pilots Association). Breitling's long standing relationship with the Red Arrows began in the early 1990's but the brands passion for flying dates back to the earliest days of aviation.
