Brietling Chronospace For Pilots

in Breitling | Saturday, July 10. 2010

In its 125 year history, Breitling has had great success being at the forefront of developing timepieces intended for pilots. Perhaps until now, most famously with its Navitimer line whose circular slide rule is capable of handling all the essential calculations relating to airborne navigation. The latest creation to be unveiled by the brand is the Chronospace, a multifunction wrist instrument geared towards the “professional aviator” with its cutting-edge electronics. The new timepiece features a steel case with a screwed in case-back and resonance chamber. It boasts water-resistant to 5 bars. The bezel on the watch is a bidirectional rotating pinion bezel (slide rule).

The Chronospace is powered by the Breitling Caliber 78 SuperQuartz™ movement, an officially chronometer-certified by the COSC. The movement functions include a 1/100th of a second chronograph with split times, alarm, countdown, dual timezone display with independent alarm, 24-hour military time, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), slide rule, battery end-of-life indicator and a perpetual calendar.

The dial on the timepiece is available in several color choices - Volcano black, Mariner blue, Tungsten gray and Stratus silver. The watch’s LCD screens are equipped with high-performance NVG-compatible backlighting system to ensure optimal readability in all lighting conditions. The watches functions are indicated by oversized hands, along with luminescent hour-markers and large 3 and 9 o’clock numerals. The Chronospace is also available with a variety of bracelet choices including leather, rubber Diver Pro, rubber Ocean Racer/woven steel Aero Classic.
