Transocean Chronograph GMT, ultra-practical luxury watch in limited editions by Breitling

TRANSOCEAN CHRONOGRAPH GMT
Beyond fashions, beyond oceans
The contemporary classic Transocean collection welcomes a new travel watch boasting unprecedented user friendliness. To mark the launch of this chronograph with a nomadic soul, Breitling is offering red gold or steel limited editions featuring an elegant guilloché dial and a transparent caseback revealing Manufacture Breitling Caliber B04.
Entirely developed and produced within the Breitling workshops, selfwinding chronograph Caliber B04 is distinguished by its ultra-pratical and innovative second timezone powered by a patented mechanism. When the user reaches another part of the globe, he need only pull out the crown and turn it forwards or backwards in one-hour increments in order to instantly adjust to the time and date of the new timezone – all the while maintaining a 24-hour home-time indication and without losing any precision in terms of the minutes display. This highly functional device, combined with a high-performance chronograph, joins the Breitling Transocean collection – a line with a pure design reflecting the spirit of long-distance journeys and luxury long-haul airliners. Issued in limited series of 200 in red gold and 2,000 in steel, the new Transocean Chronograph GMT features an elegantly understated case with a beveled bezel and slender lugs. It is distinguished by a silver or black guilloché dial adorned with applied hour-markers, finely recessed counters and the 18K gold interpretation of the B initial that served for many years as the brand symbol. The transparent sapphire crystal caseback – a rarity for Breitling – provides a chance to admire the architecture of Manufacture Breitling Caliber B04, chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), as indeed are all Breitling movements. Timeless elegance, peerless performance, unrivaled user friendless: exactly the kind of qualities required to cross fashion trends and ocean expanses with enduring style and panache.
