Breitling unveils three new timepieces: Transocean Chronograph Edition, Chronomat 44 Raven, Galactic 44

This is what I would call a nice line extension. Have a look at the three new “Instruments for Professionals”, as Breitling would for sure call them.

 

The Breitling Transocean Chronograph Edition plays with the history of Breitling. Inspired by a model from 1958 (an ultra-precise, anti-shock, anti-magnetic and super-water-resistant watch that magnificently accompanied the boom in intercontinental air travel), the Transocean reflects the spirit of great journeys and luxury long-haul aircraft. The watch features a two-tone dial with two vintage-style counters, and a double case back complete with a cover. The Transocean Chronograph Edition limited series reinterprets the contemporary classic style of the Transocean line; it is a tribute to Breitling’s privileged ties with the chronograph.

  • When I saw the title of this post I thought that it would make no sense for me to read it since I don’t like Breitling’s style a lot. And well, the Raven looks like a Casio to me and the Galactic (what a name…) makes me think of a typical Breitling case with a Rolex dial. All not my taste.

    But I am quite positively surprised by the Transocean.

    Don’t let yourself be guided by your preconception of a certain brand!
