Providing classic timepieces with a refreshed look, Breitling PVD watches are a way of adding something unique and stylish to the wrist – a look that refuses to conform with the standard look of a stainless steel watch. Breitling put great emphasis on their PVD coated watches, ensuring that they come feature-packed to catch attention and of course, to make them even more desirable than those on the market offering just a coated case alone. Instead Breitling integrate some of their most cutting edge technological processes into the manufacturing of these PVD coated watches, to offer a highly functional, high-tech instrument for the most challenging of missions. And that is what Breitling watches are all about – equipping the lady or the gentleman with something wearable, something equally sleek but something highly practical.
Breitling PVD watches are ergonomically manufactured using the highest quality materials. Their dynamic designs are futuristic – attention demanding, and oozing bucketfuls of character. After the case middle blanks are fired out and the other parts are turned and shaped via a process called milling-cutting, the coating method is applied by Physical Vapour Deposition. This process applies a coating to the watch with a high grade material that gives the timepiece increased robustness, enhanced strength and added durability. The finish also allows the Breitling PVD watch to keep its polish or its sheen for an unimaginable amount of time.
Breitling PVD watches such as the Breitling Avenger II GMT watch combines the brand’s four essential criteria in manufacture; sturdiness, functionality, precision and sophistication whilst providing a sleek professional look on the wrist. The black coating to the wrist not only enhances longevity but allows it to be worn with more casual clothing at the weekend, or for these evening occasions where “smart casual” is the dress code. The watch features a GMT function presented by a red coated arrow-tipped hand and a bidirectional rotating bezel that offers a third timezone. Perfect for the avid traveller, the Breitling Avenger II GMT watch is sure to sit comfortably against the skin for those long-haul travel journeys.
The Breitling Colt Black Steel DLC watch also joins the brand’s collection of coated delights. A DLC finish promised to harden the watch, making it more resistant to shocks and abrasions, whilst retaining a glossy look to the surface of the case. The timepiece features a military inspired material strap with tang style buckle to offer round the clock comfort, as well as an officially chronometer-certified mechanical movement, capable of producing 28, 800 vibrations to the hour. A large screw-locked crown, complete with protective reinforcements and a neat set of chronograph sub-dials finish this limited edition piece perfectly – the black coating of its outer shell teaming beautifully with a rich black dial on the inside.
For a Breitling PVD watch that offers something a little more technical-looking, the Breitling Cockpit B50 watch in its sleek all-black aesthetics, is a military-inspired design for those who will easily make the most of extra features such as: Countdown and count-up, clock flight time chronograph, electronic tachometer, 2nd timezone and alarm. The thermocompensated ETA quartz movement is housed inside a titanium case which promises a much lighter yet much stronger material than stainless steel.
