The owners of Swiss watchmaker Breitling are contemplating a sale of the company, Bloomberg reports.

Breitling, whose roots date to 1884, is an independent company known for its pilot watches. Its sales last year are estimated to have totaled about $364 million.

According to Bloomberg, which cited unnamed sources, the “most likely suitors” for Breitling would be luxury-goods firms.

Breitling doesn’t quite have the brand recognition of certain other watch brands, such as Patek Philippe and Rolex, but it’s received endorsements from some major celebrities, including the likes of David Beckham and John Travolta.

News of the potential sale comes amid a downturn for Swiss watch exports.

GCA Altium Ltd., an investment bank, is reportedly advising Breitling.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
