Breitling serial numbers

Breitling serial numbers

The Breitling brand has truly identified with the concept of the timepiece since it was founded in 1884. Right from the start, the focus was on the development of chronographs, so that this tradition can still be found in the model series to this day. It is therefore no wonder that in 1915 the then young and family-owned company also developed one of the first wristwatches with a chronograph function. Demand increased and Breitling also became what it is today. Namely one of the best-known brands in the Swiss luxury watch segment.

At Breitling, the serial number is engraved on the outside of the case back. These provide information about the exact year of manufacture.
