Breitling watches are known for being sported almost exclusively by classy, sophisticated gentlemen. Perhaps not surprisingly then, many celebrities are fans of Breitling watches, which use the latest technology for accurate timekeeping, and are constructed of only the highest quality materials so that they are built to last. In addition, some celebrities have been formally brought on by Breitling as ambassadors for the brand, appearing in ad campaigns to promote their love for these fine timepieces. Known in particular for being aviation watches, Breitlings are especially favored by flying enthusiasts, although they are worn by many others as well.
One of the most famous celebrities to wear Breitling watches is John Travolta. John has been acting in movies since the 1970s, and garnered mainstream success thanks to his roles in Grease, Pulp Fiction, and Saturday Night Fever. In the ensuing decades since his big screen debut, John has garnered a reputation as one of Hollywood’s most elite actors. He is also known for his love of flying, to the extent that he even owns his own private airplane! It is no surprise, then, that John is a big fan of Breitling watches. Widely recognized as an ambassador for the luxury watch brand, he has been featured in many of its magazine advertisements and commercials over the years. In addition to wearing the watches in advertisements, he has also been spotted wearing a Breitling watch while on the red carpet in Hollywood or when flying his plane thousands
of feet above ground.
John’s particular watch of choice is the Breitling Navitimer. The Navitimer is a true aviation watch, featuring a unique chronograph design that Breitling has become known for. When it comes to aesthetics, the sapphire crystal of the Navitimer ensures that the watch is protected against scratches. It is also anti-reflective, allowing the time and details to be seen even when directly exposed to the bright sun. Even better, the Navitimer is water resistant, meaning that a gentleman can take a dip in his swimming pool – or take his plane down for an emergency landing in the water – and be confident that his watch will keep on ticking, without missing a beat. With a self winding feature and a 70 hour power reserve, plus a choice of either a steel or gold case, the Navitimer allows anyone to customize the watch to fit their own style. Other celebrities that have been spotted wearing the Navitimer include Tommy Lee Jones, Simon Cowell, and musician Miles Davis.
Harrison Ford is another actor who is a fan of the Breitling brand of watches, and he too has been photographed frequently wearing them. Harrison Ford is known for his extensive acting and producing career in Hollywood, having starred in many famous flicks including Star Wars, the Indiana Jones series, and The Fugitive. His acting career goes back to the 1960s, and over the ensuing years he has carved out a niche for himself in the action, science fiction, and suspense genres.
Harrison has been photographed on multiple occasions while wearing the Breitling Aerospace timepiece. The Aerospace model has a sporty look which is perfect for aviators, but which also has enough class and elegance to be worn by the most famous people in Hollywood. The Aerospace offers many different features, including a chronograph, a countdown timer, the addition of a second time zone, and an alarm. It is also known for its precise accuracy in keeping time. As with other models, the Aerospace can be customized with bands and materials to fit the needs and style of the person wearing it. Actor Robert Duvall is also a known fan of the Breitling Aerospace.
In addition to actors, singers, and even pilots, sometimes even those who have been in space appreciate the fine craftsmanship of Breitling watches. Buzz Aldrin was a U.S. Air Force pilot who took his love of flying and engineering into space itself. Buzz was the second person in history to walk on the moon, after his commander Neil Armstrong. He was also the first person to walk in space. Buzz has been seen wearing the Breitling Emergency on more than one occasion.
The Breitling Emergency was designed specifically for pilots and airline crews. One of its most notable features is the built-in broadcasting on the airline emergency frequency channel. This sends a signal to rescuers in the event of a crash or unscheduled landing. The transmitter can help in any case of emergency, helping attract the attention of rescue crews up to 100 miles away, and broadcasting for 48 straight hours when the emergency antenna is pulled. The Emergency also features a digital calendar, a glare proof sapphire crystal, a chronograph, a timer, and an alarm. Like other Breitling watches, it is also extremely accurate when keeping time. The Breitling Emergency has also been spotted on the wrists of several other well-known individuals, including Sir Richard Branson and Bear Grylls of the television show Man Vs. Wild.
Whether a person spends their days shooting a movie, flying an airplane, or even just working in the office, Breitling offers high quality watches that will help get the job done. With a mix of both sporty and stylish aesthetics, these watches are simultaneously sleek and elegant, being made of high quality and durable materials that will last for years to come. Many celebrities choose this luxury menswear brand because it looks good and is one of the best watch brands available on the market. Even though Breitling watches are geared towards pilots and air crews, anyone that wants a stylish and elegant watch with all of the features they need can wear a Breitling with pride.
