Hi,

My name is Caroline and I am working on paper about the top watch maker comapanies in Switzerland.
I have some problem to find information about the latest history of Breitling company and current company owners.
Can anyone help me out?

Cheers,
Caroline

Breitling is independently owned by the Schneider family who purchased the name from Willy Breitling in 1979.

There was a brief discussion of some of the early history on here last year - not sure if that's any help or not.

It may also be worth laying your hands on the 2009 Chronolog as it has quite a bit of information about the history of the company. May be some use.
