Breitling Chronospace

In 125 years, Breitling has launched a number of stellar models intended for pilots, including the famous Navitimer with its circular slide rule capable of handling all the essential calculations relating to airborne navigation. Today, the privileged partner of aviation is pursuing this tradition with a new model that draws upon the full potential of cutting-edge electronics. Designed for intensive professional use, the Chronospace boasts an impressive array of functions that are useful to pilots – 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), perpetual calendar – all powered by a chronometer-certified Breitling SuperQuartzTM movement that is ten times more accurate than an ordinary quartz caliber. The large dial is distinguished by its oversized hands, along with luminescent hour-markers and large 3 and 9 o’clock numerals.

To guarantee optimal readability by day and night, the LCD screens are equipped with a high-performance NVG-compatible backlighting system. The double caseback is designed to amplify sound signals up to a level of 90 decibels. The circular rack-and-pinion mounted slide rule is easily and accurately rotated using the star-shaped bezel – an original and extremely ergonomic design.

Movement is a Swiss quartz, Breitling Caliber 78 SuperQuartz, COSC-certified as a chronometer. It is thermocompensated with analog and LCD 12/24-hour display (NVG compatible). 1/100th of a second chronograph with split times, alarm, countdown,
dual timezone display with independent alarm, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), perpetual calendar, and a battery end-of-life indicator.

The case, in stainless steel, measures 45mm. It has an AR-coated sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 50 meters. Dials are available in Volcano black, Mariner blue, Tungsten gray, and Stratus silver. It comes with a leather strap, rubber Diver Pro strap, rubber Ocean Racer strap or a woven steel Aero Classic bracelet.
