This limited-edition Chronoliner stows an in-house B04 calibre. Kitted out in blue livery with a second time zone, it comes in to land at just 50 Breitling stores worldwide.

Complete with its automatic chronograph, its second timezone display in 24-hour mode and its high-tech ceramic rotating bezel serving to read off a third time zone, also on a 24-hour scale – perfect for measuring flight times during long-haul travel around the world –, the Chronoliner has asserted itself as the authentic flight captain’s watch.
Breitling now introduces it in a special version with a Manufacture Breitling Caliber B04 featuring revolutionary user friendliness. Entirely developed and produced in the brand workshops, this ‘engine’ officially chronometer-certified by the COSC is distinguished by its extremely functional dual timezone system.

To adjust the main hours hand to local time, all the wearer need do is pull out the crown and turn it either way in one-hour increments, without losing any precision in terms of minutes and while ensuring automatic adjustment of the date in both directions. Meanwhile, the red-tipped hand keeps track of home time in 24-hour mode, thereby making it easy to distinguish between day and night.
To accentuate the exclusive nature of this original and high-performance model, Breitling has chosen to combine the steel case with a blue bezel and dial – the latter adorned with silver counters. The matching rubber Aero Classic strap is embossed with a pattern reminiscent of the steel mesh bracelets equipping the brand’s instruments during the 1950s and 60s.

Like all Breitling chronographs and watches, the Chronoliner B04 was designed to withstand intensive usage in even the toughest conditions, notably thanks to a
rugged case water-resistant to 100 m (330 ft), a sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides, and an ultra-hard, scratch-resistant ceramic bezel featuring a star-shaped cutout that facilitates handling even with gloves.
Equipped with a special engraved caseback – sporting a vintage-look pin-up and
“Special delivery” inscription –, the Chronoliner B04 issued in a 100-piece limited edition, is available exclusively from one of the 50 or so Breitling boutiques around the world.
