The New Breitling Raven Chronographs

in Breitling | Sunday, August 9. 2009

These new Breitling watches are special edition pieces created to add to the Airwolf and Skyracer chronographs collections. Each watch differs greatly from each other, but are part of a special new category Breitling is calling its Raven Chronographs. And while both have similar materials, with their high-tech black and steel look and rubber-molded push-pieces and bezel, these watches contain very different movements - One electronic and the other mechanical.

The Breitling Airwolf chronograph features an exclusive SuperQuartz calibre 78 movement. This COSC certified Chronometer movement is a themoline quartz which has a temperature sensor that adjusts the vibration frequency of the quartz crystal to adjust to temperatures so that the watch remains extremely accurate, to within a few seconds a year. It has a 1/100th of a second chronograph, a second timezone, countdown, alarm, and UTC.

The case is 43.5mm wide and made from a highly polished steel with chronograph pushers. The two negative LCD screens have a second timezone, alarm, countdown timer, and perpetual calendar. The slide rule around the dial that is operated via the rotating bezel. The watch allows for excellent night visibility with its NVG-compatible display backlighting system. The Airwolf case-back has a turbine-shaped engraving which act as a resonance chamber for the alarm and other audible indications. The dial is available in black, silver, or grey. The Airworlf comes on a rubber strap with portholes and there will be a metal bracelet and leather or crocodile strap available as well.

The Breitling Skyracer chronograph features the exclusive Caliber 27 movement that allows dual visualization of measured times and has a 48 hours power reserve. It has a 60-minute counter with a central hand that allows for perfect readability of any time measurement under one hour. For the measurement of longer periods of time, the dial has a single two-hand counter which displays hours and minutes. It features a rack-and-pinion mounted slide rule. This self winding chronograph is water resistant to 200 meters, and features a two-hand totalizer.
