Two new liveries for the flight captain’s watch from Breitling
A blue version, a bronze version: the Chronoliner by Breitling expresses its timeless look through two new models endowed with a strong character. An effective means of accentuating the original style of this aviation chronograph enabling simultaneous readings of three timezones.
Inspired by a model from the 1950s and 60s, an era when Breitling was already “official supplier to world aviation”, the Chronoliner pursues this tradition in a resolutely modern spirit. It is distinguished by its broad bezel in ultra-hard and scratchproof high-tech ceramic featuring a star-shaped cut-out that facilitates handling. Breitling now introduces this peerless instrument in two original new colors – blue and bronze – with matching bezel and dial. Water-resistant to 100 m (330 ft), the steel case houses a selfwinding chronograph movement officially chronometer-certified by the COSC.
The dial stands out by its excellent legibility entirely worthy of an instrument panel. The red-tipped hand serves to read off a second timezone in 24-hour mode, while the rotating bezel indicates a third timezone, also on a 24-hour scale. The caseback bears the stylized planes that long served as the Breitling signature. These two blue and bronze Chronoliner models are available with a leather strap, a steel or steel mesh bracelet, or a rubber strap picking up the steel mesh motif.
