Inspired by a model from the 1950s and 60s, an era when Breitling was already “official supplier to world aviation”, the Chronoliner pursues this tradition in a resolutely modern spirit. It is distinguished by its broad bezel in ultra hard and scratchproof high tech ceramic featuring a star shaped cut out that facilitates handling. Breitling now introduces this peerless instrument in two original new colors blue and bronze with matching bezel and dial. Water resistant to 100 m (330 ft), the steel case houses a selfwinding chronograph movement officially chronometer certified by the COSC. The dial stands out by its excellent legibility entirely worthy of an instrument panel. The red tipped hand serves to read off a second timezone in 24 hour mode, while the rotating bezel indicates a third timezone, also on a 24 hour scale. The caseback bears the stylized planes that long served as the Breitling signature. These two blue and bronze Chronoliner models are available with a leather strap, a steel or steel mesh bracelet, or a rubber strap picking up the steel mesh motif.
