Breitling was founded in 1884 and is the world’s only major watch brand to equip all its models with chronometer-certified movements, the ultimate token of precision.
With its manufacture of the Caliber 01, Breitling has created the most reliable and accurate of all self-winding chronograph movements. The chronographs are produced entirely by Breitling at their own workshops, an amazing accomplishment that has further established the company as the benchmark of mechanical chronographs. This family business is also one of the last remaining independent Swiss watch brands.
Ernie commented, “I’ve always had a passion for watches and Breitling is an iconic brand that I’ve long admired and that creates beautifully crafted and precise timepieces that I know I’m going to enjoy wearing. With my love of flying and Breitling’s affinity and connection with the history of aviation this is the perfect partnership, one of genuine shared values. It’s a pleasure to be associated with the company.”
At the time of Ernie’s signing with Breitling in 2013 the company produced a Limited Edition Chronograph to raise funds for Autism. “Ernie’s passion for his charity is a testament to his good nature, and one of the many reasons we’re honored to call him a friend of Breitling,” said Breitling USA President Thierry Prissert. “It’s humbling to be part of his cause.”
