Breitling’s Transocean Chronograph 38 - First-Class Femininity

Europa Star WorldWatchWeb, 29 January 2013    Español Pусский 中文

With its understated design and refined dials, the Transocean offers a resolutely contemporary stylistic interpretation of the aesthetic of 1950s and 1960s chronographs.

A model of fine workmanship and excellence, it has established itself as a new classic marrying prestige and distinction. Breitling is now enriching this exceptional collection with a 38 mm-diameter ladies’ chronograph that lends a touch of character to any wrist, including the daintiest. The case with its pure lines, accentuated by a beveled bezel and slender lugs, comes in a choice of steel or 18K red gold.

The meticulously crafted dials are adorned with applied hourmarkers and hollowed counters featuring a spiral motif. They are available in three refined colors – deep black, glowing silver and a highly original midnight blue shade. The caseback is engraved with the two stylized planes that were a longtime Breitling symbol, as indeed was the initial B in 18K gold enhancing the dial. The Barenia or crocodile leather straps offer a broad choice of vivid or classic hues, while a steel mesh bracelet lends a touch of boldness and sophistication. A paragon of elegance, the Transocean Chronograph 38 also boasts outstanding performances thanks to a selfwinding chronograph movement chronometercertified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), the highest benchmark in terms of precision and reliability. Transocean Chronograph 38: First-class femininity.
