Few brands have made such a rich and profound contribution to the development of the chronograph, as well as watches in aviation, as Breitling. This has resulted in a long lineage of iconic models from the Navitimer to the Emergency and many in between. Also, its partnership with Bentley, with as highlight the very exclusive Breitling tourbillon clock available as an option for the Bentayga, has been a great success. A little over a year now, the brand is being led by the capable Georges Kern, who previously catapult IWC to new heights. Among Breitling’s extensive and diverse collection, these are Haute Time’s favorites!
Breitling Avenger Hurricane Breitlight
With its 24-hour dial, with distinct stenciled numerals, does the Breitling Avenger Hurricane Breitlight oozes the military life. It is fitted with a chronograph, which is powered by automatic manufacture caliber Breitling B12. Exceptional is also its case, which is made of the light and sturdy proprietory Breitlight. The sapphire crystal is glareproofed on both sides, while the watch is also water resistant up to 330 feet, making it that there is hardly a situation that this Breitling cannot handle.
Why we like it: tough yet superlight, it can take a beating and looks good doing so!
Breitling Superocean Heritage II
Next to its chronographs and aviation watches, Breitling also has an extensive history in the field of diving watches, mainly with their long-standing Superocean collection. Why these watches remain popular becomes clear from the Superocean Heritage II, with its stunning blue dial, 660 feet water resistance and clearly legible functions. Despite its capabilities did Breitling also succeed in making the watch elegant, so that even with a suit it is a perfect match.
Why we like it: an iconic diving watch that brings a different flavor to this popular category of watches.
Breitling Chronomat B01 Chronograph 44
Automatic manufacture chronograph caliber in the distinct Chronomat case can only result in a very impressive watch! It is one of those iconic designs that made Breitling one of the most recognized watch brands. With its matted surfaces does this version of the Chronomat B01 highlight the technical approach of the brand, which gets extra character from its beautiful dial.
Why we like it: Breitling at its best, combining its signature design with a manufacture chronograph movement.
Breitling Navitimer Rattrapante
In the world of watches, the Navitimer is one of those ultimate icons. How can you improve on that? By fitting it with a rattrapante complication! Especially combined with a red gold case this results in the ultimate version of this watch. Rightfully it is a complication that belongs in the line-up of Breitling. The button to operate the rattrapante complication is integrated into the crown, making it a bit of an insiders secret, as only true Breitling connoisseur will be able to tell the difference between the regular chronograph and this more exclusive version.
Why we like it: Navitimer Rattrapante….do we really need to say more?
