Are you an active watch enthusiast? Have you a soft spot for sports watches? If yes is the answer to both of those questions, you may want to take a look at the Breitling Endurance Pro watch. The Breitling watch ref: X82310281B1S1 is a Breitlight version of a sporty chronograph, clad in a sleek blue and black aesthetic courtesy of some of the Swiss brand’s most cutting-edge materials.
When the Breitling Endurance Pro watch collection launched in 2020, it did so under the brand’s “Breitling Endurance Pro Strava Challenge,” which encouraged amateur athletes wearing the watch to rack up 500 minutes of running, cycling, hiking, climbing and swimming. By doing so they were entered into a drawing to win a co-branded Breitling/Colnago bicycle. Now the collection continues with more cool and vibrant colours and focuses on the brand’s Breitlight material forged from carbon. Under the creative direction of CEO Georges Kern, the Endurance Pro watch is an affordable alternative to the Chronomat B01 and fits easily into the brand’s modern line-up of watches on offer in the current catalogue.
“…three times lighter than titanium and almost six times lighter than stainless steel.”
Cleverly the blue Breitling Endurance Pro watch is designed to be lightweight enough for wearing casually, but also comfortable enough for athletes as well as for use as a day-to-day sports chronograph. To do this, Breitling chooses its proprietary Breitlight material. Breitlight is three times lighter than titanium and almost six times lighter than stainless steel. The material is also highly scratch-resistant and hypoallergenic as well as resistant to traction and corrosion, thermally stable and non-magnetic. Its sleek black colour also grants the case of the Breitling Endurance Pro watch a dynamic and youthful appeal. The case of the blue and black-coloured Breitling Endurance Pro watch ref: X82310281B1S1 is water-resistant to 100 meters and measures a diameter of 44mm.
The top of the watch’s case is sealed with a cambered sapphire crystal glass lens treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant properties. It provides a glare-free glance into its sleek black chronograph dial. Super-LumiNova-coated central hands and an hour track represented by Arabic numerals facilitate easy timekeeping during the night or when caught in low-light conditions. The dial features chronograph counters positioned in the 2-6-10 layout. These sub-counters offer 1/10th of a second, 30-minute and small second functions respectively. The chronograph hands stand out against their black backdrop, injecting the dial with a shot of vibrant red. In addition to this, the dial features a date window at 4:30, surrounded by a blue pulsometer track around the flange.
The Breitling Endurance Pro Breitlight watch is powered by a Thermocompensated SuperQuartz™ movement, which provides an accuracy that is 10 times greater than that of a standard quartz movement. Breitling has always remained at the forefront of chronograph manufacture, having developed its own mechanical chronograph movements and, of course, inventing the two independent push-pieces for its stopwatch models during the 1960s. Its SuperQuartz™ movements, however, are more superior to standard quartz equivalent for better overall performance. The minute track seen in the dial of the Breitling Endurance Pro watch is also executed in this same signature blue colour, coordinating with the crown at 3 o’clock. The Endurance Pro watch also provides a compass on its bidirectional rotating bezel, assisting with the needs and requirements associated with the model’s intended use as a companion for exploration and outdoor endurance sport.
Without a doubt, the Breitling Endurance Pro watch reeks of classic Breitling design from the 1990s. Its non-conventional style is both distinct and attention-grabbing, appealing to those who like to stand out from the crowd with their daring and off-the-wall tastes. Despite this, the overall DNA of the watch and its well-built design remain to Breitling’s pioneering spirit. The chronograph watch envelops the wrist with a vivid blue rubber strap embossed with the Breitling lettering. The band secures carefully with a black Breitlight tang-style buckle.
