Thanks to the longstanding friendship with cycling enthusiast and passionate follower of the cycling world George Kern, the CEO of Breitling, a new, exciting partnership was formed between Breitling and Q36.5 at the beginning of this year. Breitling’s association with cycling can be traced back more than sixty years. Starting in the early 1950’s, the brand provided its timekeeping services to the most highly regarded competitions in the world including: the Giro d’Italia, the Milan-San Remo, the Tour de Lombardie, the Tour de France, the Tour de Belgique, the Flèche Wallonne and the Volta a Portugal.
To honor this connection, Breitling and Q36.5 have collaborated to create a dedicated Collection featuring the colours of Breitling along with graphics that reference the company’s cycling heritage. Breitling worked with some of the sports true legends. One was Italian Fausto Coppi, “Il Campionissimo”. The “World Champion” of World Champions won the Tour de France twice and the the Giro d’Italia five times. In fact, in 1948 and 1952, he won both races in the same seasons, the first cyclist to do so in the history of cycling. Breitling also worked with Coppi’s fiercest rival, Gino Bartali, who won the Tour de France twice and the Giro d’Italia three times. Now, to celebrate its return to the world of top-level competitive cycling, Breitling is proud to be working with Q36.5 and their extreme vision of the future of cycling clothing.
