Breitling Chronoliner Limited Series

Equipped with a triple timezone chronograph, the new gold Chronoliner from Breitling is an ideal travel companion that combines the two functions most useful to aviation professionals as well as globetrotters: a chronograph to measure flight times; and a triple time-zone display to juggle with the time around the planet.

An 18K red gold case, a bezel in ultra-hard, scratch-resistant high-tech black ceramic: this Chronoliner special model combines materials and colors in an original way. An appealing means of accentuating its technical and powerful styling distinguished by a star-shaped cut-out that facilitates handling. The touch of originality is reinforced by an exclusive rubber strap picking up the design of the steel mesh Breitling Aero Classic bracelet. The gold and black contrast may also be extended by opting for a leather or crocodile leather strap.
The second time-zone indication in 24-hour mode (useful for distinguishing between day and night) is indicated by a red-tipped central hand, while the rotating bezel serves to read off a third timezone, also in 24-hour mode.
The self-winding chronograph movement, chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), ensures maximum precision and reliability. Its functions are clearly displayed on a dial worthy of the finest flight instruments, with counters at 12, 9 and 6 o’clock.
Issued in a 250-piece limited series, the gold Chronoliner (water-resistant to 100 m) features a caseback bearing the stylized planes that were a long time Breitling signature. The gold Chronoliner is priced at £22,650.
