Dropping In On Breitling’s Canadian Flagship Store In Toronto

First off, Breitling is a name that’s synonymous with beautiful, yet utilitarian watches, that are rich with heritage.

They are one of my favourite timepiece brands just because they really stand out on the wrist when you wear them. Whether it’s different looking divers, their wrist straps, their complex dials or their rich colours, Breitling provides timepieces that have a long staying power.

Having an exclusive experience at their opening of their Yorkdale Shopping Centre store, we wanted to head right to the source. The main location for Canadians to get their hands on their favourite Breitlings at their Showroom Breitling Canada.

The boutique itself brings a very clean look with lovely dark wood, with the pops of colour coming from the eye-catching artwork and the timepieces with colourful details, bringing your eyes and body closer to the cases.

We had the opportunity to try on and hold some of the newest 2019 styles for Breitling and learn more about the heritage, what’s coming out and the little nuances that bring out the best of Breitling.

Two interesting things we learned about Breitling was their logos and how to tell what is an in-house and out-of-house movement.

A Change In Branding

First, the infamous  ‘B’ logo with wings is being discontinued, they are simplifying their logo to only showcase the ‘B’ without the wings for a much cleaner and less busy dial and branding.

How To Tell The Differences Between Breitling Movements

Secondly, for you to know a movement is made in-house versus something that is made out of the Breitling facilities is by the way the dials are situated, specifically on their Chronograph.

If the dials occupy the Left-Right-Bottom of the dial, then it’s a movement that was made in-house in Breitling (Example: Breitling Navitimer B04 GMT 46). These watches are typically more expensive compared to the out-of-house movements.

However, if the movement has an Up-Left-Bottom (Example: Navitimer 41 Chronograph) location, then the movement was made out-of-house. Interesting. Something to look at when you peek at your friend’s Breitling chronograph.
