When it comes to watches in the air, there’s more to things than just telling time accurately. Aesthetics are one thing, but function is key above all when it comes to watches for pilots. And the Breitling Chronoliner B04 is endowed with all the functions any pilot needs. With the Breitling Chronoliner B04 limited edition, the beautiful aesthetics of the original version are elevated to higher heights than ever.
Ticking To Long-Haul Time
The warm hues of the gold limited edition, strikingly different from the cool steel of the normal version, perfectly complement the blue of the dial. Breitling calls this “Aurora blue”, a term which brings to mind the shade of the same skies that pilots travel through every day. This colour is frequently used in special releases of the classics, such as the Navitimer, the Cosmonaute, and the Chronomat.
Beyond just aesthetics though, the Breitling Chronoliner B04 limited edition features all the functions of the original version. You can probably guess from the name that the Breitling Chronoliner B04’s caliber is the Breitling Caliber B04. It features revolutionary user friendliness. The best part? It’s also officially chronometer-certified by the COSC.
Most importantly though, the Breitling Chronoliner B04 has an extremely functional dual timezone system.
The main hours hand is easily adjusted to local time. Simply pull out the crown and turn it either way in one-hour increments to adjust. This process doesn’t lose any precision in terms of the minutes, so you have nothing to worry about. It also automatically adjusts the date in either direction.
Meanwhile, the red-tipped hand keeps track of home time in 24-hour mode, so you’ll always know what time it is back home. The ultra-hard, scratch-resistant ceramic rotating bezel displays a third timezone, also in 24-hour mode. Just the ticket for a long-haul flight around the world.
The Breitling Chronoliner B04 limited edition has only 250-pieces in its series, making it exclusive to the most discerning pilots out there.
