Breitling Chronoliner Watch
Breitling is notorious for its range of pilot’s watches with more ties to aviation than probably any other watch manufacturer. This year, Breitling will add to this lineup with the new Chronoliner.
Inspired by a model from the 1950s and 60s, you don’t need to be a pilot to appreciate the Breitling Chronoliner watch. Having said that, it doesn’t hurt either. Designed with aviation in mind, it features a COSC-certified chronograph displayed on counters at 12, 9 and 6 o’clock – ideal for measuring flight times.
A second 24-hour time zone is readable via the red-tipped hand and the rotating, scratch-resistant black ceramic bezel with 24-hour scale, and white ceramic numerals keep things visible even at night thanks to a contrasting black dial.
Although it’s inspired from a time gone by, this timepiece certainly does have a touch of the modern watchmaker with the ceramic bezel. The case itself is a strong 46mm, constructed of polished steel with two lugs and a matching crown.
The Breitling Chronoliner is secured with either the Breitling “Ocean Classic” mesh metal steel bracelet or the standard Navitimer bracelet. Water resistant down to 100 meters and fitted with an AR-coated sapphire crystal, its known stats are rounded out with two days of power reserves and a Breitling calibre 24 powering the mechanics.
The Breitling Chronoliner Watch screams class and sophistication. Prices vary depending on the bracelet, case and dial options you choose but you’re roughly looking at between £3,600-£4,250 for one. Get more details at Breitling’s Website.
