The Breitling Chronoliner collection is a fine representation of aviation’s spectacular progress over the last century. With designs that take inspirational cues from the instrument panels of the cockpit, with scale and pointer-type counters - master designers at Breitling have been fuelled with endless air-travel concepts to incorporate into their beautifully engineered instruments.
The prestigious Breitling Chronoliner collection features a group of instruments that relay a compelling vintage spirit. The inspiration is taken from the collection’s ancestor models from the 1950’s and 1960’s, whose designs were largely characterized by the popular broad bezel and impressive large legible dial. Equipped with a chronometer certified chronograph function, the timepiece provides the pilot with accurate flight time measures and a triple timezone display. Comparing the original Chronoliner designs with those of the most recent kind – very little has changed. Breitling’s technological capability and commitment to quality, are factors that have been tweaked, yet only slightly, over the years, to provide flying enthusiast with unprecedented reliability and complete safety in their missions.
The Breitling Chronoliner watches display the iconic star-shaped cut-out on their bidirectional rotating bezels, and a bold scratch-resistant high-tech ceramic bezel. The rugged timepiece allows the wearer to consult three separate timezones. The local time is traditionally set on the central hands, and the second timezone is accessed via the red-tipped arrow-headed hand, indicating a 24 hour scale. The bezel of the Breitling Chronoliner watch represents the third timezone which is also displayed in 24 hour scale. The chronograph scales are accessed via piston-shaped pushers at 2 o’clock and 4’oclock to measure accurate flight times. Our hand-picked selection of Breitling Chronoliner watches consist f lacquered black dials, striking white chronograph scales and robust stainless steel bracelets with comfortable deployment clasp fastens.
Breitling Chronoliner watches are powered by the unbeatable Caliber 24. The movement which provides 28,000 vibrations per hour and an extraordinary 42 hours of power reserve, perfectly equips the pilot during long-haul lights where precision and reliability are paramount to safety. Protecting the internal powerhouse of the timepiece, Breitling choose a solid stainless steel case with a 100 meter water resistance. The robust and masculine-infused style of the Breitling Chronoliner, mirrors the brand’s experience as a consistent leader in the world’s pursuit for a pilot-themed wristwatch with a resolutely contemporary image.
Looking at the design of the Breitling Chronoliner watch collection, it is clear that the timepiece is used first and foremost as a practical instrument, however the crisp carved hour batons and polished finish of its robust stainless steel strap, undeniably match such a level of functionality in beauty. Considering the dial of the watch needs to relay large amounts of information quickly and precisely, its layout of carefully chosen elements, remain in good proportion to one another. The Chronoliner, as with all Breitling watches is designed with the proud “Breitling 1884” lettering on its dial– the year that marked the founding of Leon Breitling’s workshop in the Swiss Jura. Since then, the brand has continued to develop industry-leading timepieces for professionals, using their very own materials, designs and concepts.
