Breitling Gets Adventurous With Its Latest Watch Novelties
Breitling has been on a pretty good roll lately with its reinterpretations of archival models, including the most recent revival of Top Time, a chronograph from the '60s. The new Chronomat takes its cues from the original 1984 version, which marked the Swiss brand's triumphant return to mechanical watchmaking after the quartz crisis. Its most distinguishing feature is the the Rouleaux bracelet with cylindrical links. The bi-directional bezel also comes with rider tabs for ease of use. Available in 42mm case size, there are a number of style options in the new collection with the most distinctive being the Bentley edition with a green dial and the luxurious rose gold and stainless steel version with blue dial.
Superocean Heritage '57 Capsule Collection
Available for a limited time only, this capsule collection is inspired by the laidback lifestyle of surfers with design inspiration from the '50s and '60s. Its most distinctive feature is the concave stainless steel bezel with ceramic ring with a luminescent dot at 12 o'clock. It comes in a choice of a black dial or blue dial, but we're partial to the version with the hands and markers in a rainbow graduation of yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, red, and orange. Paired with eco-friendly Outerknown Econyl yarn NATO strap available in six colour combinations, this is a rarely seen side of Breitling at its most vibrant.
We designed the Superocean Heritage ’57 Limited Edition as a watch for people who want something a little out of the ordinary — for people who want both a great watch and a little festival of color on their wrists.
— Georges Kern, CEO of Breitling
Navitimer Automatic 35
Designed for the contemporary woman, this Navitimer boasts all the robust features of a pilot's watch, from the COSC-certified mechanical movement to the slide rule analog calculator, but with more refined features — and not just a smaller case size. "We've created a watch that reflects what women have been telling us: A stylish, smaller Navitimer that doesn’t sacrifice heritage or functionality," noted Breitling CEO Georges Kern. Indeed, the watches balance function and form beautifully in four styles, the most elegant being those equipped with a mother-of-pearl dial with diamond hour markers in a choice of stainless steel or red gold.
