There aren’t many Breitling books available, but Benno Richter’s book, encompasses the breadth of Breitling timepieces since its 1884 founding. Included are color and black & white photos, exploded diagrams, catalogs, and advertisements. Breitling itself does not offer an Extract from the Archives services, but with the help of reference numbers, readers may have a better sense of production timing. Breitling: The History also includes detail on watch features, reference numbers and straps.
Note this book is more focused on Breitling history and vintage pieces, and less so the modern pieces.
