Chronoliner B04 : True Class And Supreme Comfort

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 cut- out 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.
