History of the Breitling Crosswind

. For some time, this connection was even implied by the logo with the winged B. Nowadays though, Breitling also has numerous diving and functional watches
on offer, as well as durable everyday watches
. Most Breitling watches are intrinsically sporty and have a masculine appearance that exudes an adventurous aura. Characteristic design elements are the chronograph display with three totalisers, the dark brushed steel and the distinctive dials with large numbers and bar indices.
The Breitling Crosswind also features this masculine, standout design. As part of the Windrider collection
, which also includes the Crosswind Racing and Crosswind Special models, this sporty and elegant luxury watch was produced until the mid-2000s. Collectors and fans of the brand in particular will appreciate the rarity of the watch today.
Other exciting series
The Breitling Navitimer is regarded as the absolute classic of pilot's watches. Thanks to the sizable dial, it has perfect readability, and with the help of the slide rule built into the bezel, flight data could be easily calculated during flights. Today, it is just as popular as an everyday watch than it is with pilots.
The Avenger II is characterised by its large, powerful looking case. It is particularly popular among men who prefer masculine and distinctive watches. Visually it looks like the style of a pilot's watch. However, it remains reliable and robust when diving thanks to its high water resistance. A watch for every situation indeed!
The Breitling SuperOcean is much more than just a diver's watch. Special features such as a helium valve ensure maximum functionality. Thanks to maximum water resistance, the SuperOcean can even dive deeper than most submarines. But the SuperOcean is also a popular choice of accessory outside the water.
Launched back in 1942, the name of the Chronomat is a combination of both chronograph and mathematics. The watch is particularly popular with the US Army Air Force because of its functions, which enable its wearer to do mathematical calculations, among other things.
The Breitling Colt was developed for the military and takes its name from the weapon: the Colt Military. The military roots of the sporty, durable wristwatch are still evident in its design today.
