BASEL, Switzerland — Tudor and Breitling, two of Switzerland’s best-known prestige watchmakers, have agreed to exchange movements in what points to closer links between the fiercely independent brands.
Breitling, owned by publicity-shy Theodore Schneider, has been tipped regularly as a takeover target given the steady consolidation of the Swiss watch industry in recent years. Tudor is the sister brand of watchmaking giant Rolex, whose independence is guarded by a foundation that owns the company.
