Ticking to long-haul time
The “flight captain’s chronograph” takes off in an exclusive new 250-piece limited-edition version. Its signature features are an 18K gold case, blue dial and ceramic bezel, as well as a Manufacture Breitling Caliber B04 endowed with an extremely functional dual timezone system.
Accurately measuring flight times while juggling with times around the world: such is the mission of the new Chronoliner B04. To power this instrument attired in an elegant blue and gold livery, Breitling has chosen its Manufacture Breitling Caliber B04, featuring revolutionary user friendliness and being officially chronometer- certified by the COSC. The main hours hand is adjusted to local time by simply pulling out the crown and turning it either way in one-hour increments – without losing any precision in terms of the minutes and automatically adjusting the date in either direction. Meanwhile, the red-tipped hand keeps track of home time in 24-hour mode, thereby serving to distinguish between day and night. The ultra-hard, scratch- resistant ceramic rotating bezel equipping this aviation chronograph with its timeless look displays a third timezone, also in 24-hour mode. Just the ticket for a long-haul flight around the world.
