Having served as ‘official supplier to world aviation’ in the 1950s and ‘60s, Breitling now finds inspiration in a model from that era to present its new Chronoliner.
This chronometer, like all Breitling chronographs COSC-certified, is pursuing the brand’s longstanding aeronautical tradition in a spirit that is both modern and timeless. Its distinctive features include a broad scratch-resistant high-tech ceramic bezel with a star-shaped cut-out to facilitate handling, and white ceramic numerals for optimal contrast.
The second time zone is easily read off the red-tipped hand together with a 24-hour graduated rotating bezel equipped with an ultra-accurate ratchet system. The dial
is exceptionally readable, with white luminescent hour markers standing out against a black background, oversized hour/minute hands and luminescent counter hands.
Mechanical automatic Breitling 24 calibre, COSC-certified chronometer, 25 jewels, 28,800 vph. Polished steel, 48 mm case.
