Breitling is an “official supplier to world aviation”. The Swiss watch-manufacturer found inspiration in a model from the 1950s and 60s to present its new Chronoliner.
This new official certified chronometer called Chronoliner by the COSC – by the way: like the entire Breitling collection – is pursuing the brand’s longstanding aeronautical tradition in a spirit that is both modern and timeless. The Breitling Chronoliner features a broad scratch-resistant high-tech ceramic bezel with a star-shaped cut-out that facilitates handling as well as white ceramic numerals creating an optimal contrast.
The second zonetime indication is easy to read by means of a red-tipped hand together with a 24-hour graduated rotating bezel equipped with an highly-accurate ratcheted system.
The dial design stands for perfect readability, with its white luminescent hour-markers in contrast to the black background, oversized hour/minute hands and luminescent counter hands.
Also cool: The comfortable and distinctive steel mesh bracelet.
