Who doesn’t enjoy a bit of airtime? However, unlike pilots, not all of us are fortunate enough to get the real thrill of flying in a sophisticated piece of technology. Enter to the world of Pilot or Aviation watches.
Two new models of the Brietling Men Chronoliner Series from Breitling reflect on the fondness and understanding that Breitling exhibits when it comes to aviation inspired timepieces. Two shades- blue and bronze, have been crafted from steel cases with a wide bezel of high-tech ceramics inspired by the hours of Breitling Watches from the 1950s and 1960s. The watch is powered by a self-winding chronograph mechanism, which is COSC (Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute) certified.
These watches have had a loyal and steady following amongst aviation enthusiasts and connoisseurs for a very long time in history. It is not only a sturdy gadget, which should be a proud part of your watch collection, but its vintage looks and aesthetics are sure to move even the harshest of critics. Breitling has a wonderful legacy of associating itself with the world of aviation, through its timepieces and brand image.
One of the coolest design elements in the new timepieces is the layout of the dials- that in many ways represent the instrument panel of fighter planes. The arrow with a red tip indicates the time in the second time zone, and the rotating bezel is in the third time zone, both on the 24-hour scale. There are a number of options with regard to both straps and bracelets. Both the timepieces arefurnished with a leather strap which match the colour of the dial, a steel bracelet with large links, a steel bracelet of Milan weave or a rubber strap that mimics Milanese weaving.
