Built on a solid foundation of fundamentals, Breitling have been advancing within their universe of functionality, performance and character since the year of 1884, their chronometers being the globe’s finest in supreme accuracy, built to significantly outperform human strength. So what makes Breitling watches a cut above the rest when it comes to quality, loyalty and dependability? Here we take a look at Breitling’s advancements in their reign over the watch world so far.
All of Breitling’s COSC certified instruments are distinguishable by the brand’s assertiveness and reliability, using only the finest of materials sourced by the world’s best suppliers in Switzerland. Making movements on an industrial scale, Breitling assemble all of their own components in-house. As a result their constructions consist of enhanced shock resistance, recessed sapphire crystal glasses and prominent crown guards, not to mention screwed-in case backs, screw-locked crowns and pushpieces. From ultra-sporty to the contemporary elegant – the worlds “Instruments for Professionals” are presented in a diverse range of materials, dials and straps – and they mean business!
Legibility is paramount to the experts at Breitling and this is why their advanced timekeepers are treated with a glare-proof finish on both sides of their sapphire crystal glass structures. Featuring large diameters and impressive luminescent treatment to the dial markers and hands of the Superocean II 42, just 5 to 10 minutes of natural daylight will charge the watch with several hour of light emitting radiance. The Breitling Superocean collection is one family in particular that has welcomed a number of new members to their crop this year, all of which are developed to deliver a peerless performance.
The ratio of complexity to style is quite typical of Breitling watches. The chronographs, slide rules, directional graduated bezels, second time zones, perpetual calendars, and tachymeters of the brand’s pilot watches are applied in perfect proportion to their injections of creativity and personality. The Breitling Navitimer collection brings powerful technology to mankind, delivering it with assurance and confidence. Answering the real needs of their users, Breitling’s calibres are developed to bring practical capability to those who require precision the most. When a new calibre is developed at Breitling’s headquarters, it must go through a set of stringent tests to check that their patented systems perform with nothing less than perfection. In the spirit of Swiss watchmaking, even the smallest parts that are hidden from view are finished with the greatest care. A great deal of aesthetic consideration goes into the decoration and engraving of the final movement.
Built for extreme conditions, the Transocean collection successfully binds principles of readability, precision, practicality and robustness with ultimate elegance. The new Transocean Chronograph 1915 Limited Editions are the newest members of the collection. Featuring an out-of-the-ordinary design, the sophistication and skill taken to produce the latest additions are revolutionary. Embodying tenacity, courage and non-conformist attitudes, the specialists of these technical watches have devoted themselves to their people. The spirit of Breitling is to promote the path to success and fulfil the expectations of the most demanding professionals, a core value which will remain within the DNA of the company forever.
