The expression “timing is everything” as well as “being at the right place at the right time” certainly holds true for Breitling Watches. The brand emerged from a cult-like status as a navigational watch for pilots and aviation aficionados to a highly prominent and popular watch brand in the 1990’s.
Although Breitling an independent, family-owned watchmaker for over for over 132 years, increased its brand marketing during this period, it also benefited from an non-official brand ambassador Jerry Seinfeld, who sported many of the brand’s timepieces on his widely popular TV program Seinfeld during this era.
Millions of viewers tuned in weekly to the highly rated Seinfeld program, which aired from 1989 to 1997 and had a viewership of 73 million viewers on its final episode in 1997. Seinfeld, an avid Breitling fan owns over 50 different models, which he wore throughout the duration of the show.
Today, actor John Travolta, soccer legend David Beckham and hockey player Wayne Gretzky are the current Breitling ambassadors, who appear in the brand’s current display advertisements. Seinfeld can be seen wearing his Breitling collection on syndicated re-runs of his popular show and current online program Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee.
