BREITLING News: THE NEW COLT






FRONTRUNNER


The same spirit but a new look. Breitling has entirely redesigned its Colt model, a symbol of sturdiness, reliability and performance. A sculptural model carved in steel, the new Colt turns heads with its original styling clearly built for action, achievements and thrills. With its solid construction and its water resistance to 300 meters (1,000 ft) or 500 meters (1,650 ft), it establishes itself as an exceptionally sporty model, a champion and natural frontrunner. Its originality begins with the bezel featuring a taut, sophisticated shape and stamped numerals, and continues with the case echoing the same outline. The dials are adorned with new rounded numerals exclusively designed for this model, with rhythmical motifs and with a play on colors. The steel bracelet reinforces the unique character of this fresh, youthful and dynamic design, while ensuring optimal comfort and sturdiness.

Available in three versions endowed with strong and distinctive characters, including a chronograph and a ladies’ watch, the new Colt is equipped with SuperQuartz™ movements that are chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), like all Breitling movements.


RENO AIR RACES

Reno, Nevada. Every year in September, an array of original planes converge on Stead Airport to take part in one of the world’s great aviation venues: the famous Reno pylon races. Flying at dizzying speeds, these aircraft face off on circuits traced out in the desert, just a few feet off the ground. Their motto: “Fly low, go fast, turn left.” As a partner of all the fi nest hours in aviation, Breitling is the main sponsor of this event that is unique in the world – thereby pursuing its mission to perpetuate the competitive spirit, the taste for performance and the fierce quest for victory.


Which are the models?


Colt Chronograph II

Equipped with a Breitling SuperQuartzTM movement ten times more accurate than ordinary quartz, the Colt Chronograph is water-resistant at a depth of 300 meters (1,000 ft). It features a 1/10th of a second display, a split- second hand and a fast timezone-change system that avoids any loss of precision in counting the minutes. On the design side, the generous 44 mm diameter perfectly highlights the powerful and refined style of the new Colt with its case featuring alternating polished and satin- brushed surfaces and its bezel carrying original numerals.

Colt 44

For all devotees of top-flight achievements, Breitling has equipped the Colt 44 with the best of its electronic technology in the form a SuperQuartzTM caliber ten times more accurate than standard quartz movements. The polished and satin-brushed finishes highlight the distinctive shape of the case and bezel. The sturdy construction, the screw-locked crown and the thick sapphire crystal (glareproofed on both sides) guarantee exceptional water resistance to a depth of 500 meters (1,650 ft).


Colt 33

Designed for women wishing to combine ultra-sporty character with elegance, the Colt 33 is distinguished by its 33 mm diameter and its entirely polished case with a satin-brushed upper bezel surface. The feminine touch is accentuated by an optional gemset bezel. The dials come in a choice of several refined shades. The high-precision SuperQuartzTM movement, chronometer-certified by the COSC, is housed within a sturdy steel case that is water- resistant to 500 meters (1,650 ft) – a unique feat for a ladies’ watch.

BREITLING’S "JETMAN" TRIUMPHS OVER THE GRAND CANYON





Yves "Jetman" Rossy – the world’s first jet-engine powered man – has achieved an historical feat by making his first U.S flight within the spectacular setting of the famous Grand Canyon.

Flying his jet-propelled wing attached to his back, Yves Rossy went airborne above Arizona by jumping from a helicopter flying at an altitude of 8,200 feet (2,500 m). Using only his body movements to adjust his flight path and altitude, he soared over the legendary rocky scenery at speeds of up to 190 mph (300 km/h), flying for over eight minutes along the rim of the Grand Canyon West. The high-precision flight ended with a successful parachute opening and a smooth landing on the floor of the Colorado canyon. This new major accomplishment earns Yves "Jetman" Rossy yet another place in the aeronautical history books, after others including following in Blériot’s slipstream with a channel crossing in 2008. By associating with this modern-day airborne pioneer, Breitling is once again illustrating its close and authentic ties with the world of aviation and with all the finest hours in the conquest of the skies.

Breitling launches the first Navitimer with a 100% in-house made chronograph movement






Breitling combines its two long-established passions - chronographs and aeronautics - by offering the legendary Navitimer model in a limited series equipped with its proprietary Caliber 01. Issued in 2,000-piece steel and 200-piece red gold editions, the "Navitimer Caliber 01" is distinguished by its slightly broader diameter and its transparent caseback providing clear views of its high-performance "motor". An eagerly anticipated model among devotees of the brand with the winged B, and a genuine collector's item for all connoisseurs of fine mechanical chronographs and aviation.

In 2009, Breitling laid a major milestone in its history by joining the exclusive circle of the rare watch companies to have their own mechanical chronograph movement. This was a logical culminating point for a brand that is one of the leaders in this complication and has played a crucial role in its technical development through several key inventions: the first independent pushpiece (1915); separation of the stop/start and reset functions (1923); creation of the second independent pushpiece for zero-resetting (1934); and the launch of the very first selfwinding chronograph (1969). Caliber 01, the first movement entirely developed and produced in the Breitling workshops, was first used to power an exclusive new version of the leading Chronomat model, duly named Chronomat 01. Breitling now introduces it within another watchmaking icon, the famous Navitimer which proudly embodies the brand’s aeronautical vocation.

Breitling Caliber 01: a high-performance movement assembled in a revolutionary manner Featuring an original architecture, the selfwinding Caliber 01 chronograph movement is the crowning achievement of the longstanding quest for precision and reliability that has consistently governed Breitling “Instruments for professionals”. Equipped with a column wheel, a vertical coupling clutch and an over 70-hour power reserve, it was designed to ensure maximum functionality and secure use. It features several innovative characteristics aimed at facilitating its production and its operation, including a patented self-centering device for the resetting hammers and an exclusive index-assembly system enabling swift personalized adjustment of the watch according to the wearer. This exceptional caliber is also distinguished by its pioneering production and assembly mode. Inspired by an avant-garde concept used in other cutting-edge sectors, Breitling has developed an industrial chain-production formula that revolutionizes traditional movement assembly.

Each caliber is individually monitored by an ultra-sophisticated computer program that automatically directs it towards the appropriate workstation, along a route alternating fully automated workstations with others requiring manual intervention. All the adjustment phases are integrated within this process, in such a way that upon emerging from the chain, each Caliber 01 is ready to face up to the stringent tests conducted by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) – a guarantee of authentic large-scale production reliability.

Navitimer: the cult watch of pilots and aviation enthusiasts

By immediately choosing to specialize in chronographs and timers, Léon Breitling, who founded the company in 1884, soon gained favor among aviation pioneers who needed sturdy, high-performance instruments. During the 1930s, the brand launched its first onboard chronographs, which were to equip World War II fighter planes, before accompanying the boom in air transport in the cockpits of the finest propeller planes, and later jets. In 1952, the "official supplier to world aviation” created a “wrist instrument” specially designed for pilots and other aeronautical professionals. Equipped with a circular slide rule, the Navitimer chronograph serves to handle all calculations linked to airborne navigation: average speed, distance covered, fuel consumption, rate of climb or descent, conversions from miles to kilometers or nautical miles, etc. Chosen as the official watch by the AOPA Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association), the world’s largest association of its kind, the Navitimer has asserted itself as the most iconic Breitling model – and a cult object for all aviation enthusiasts. In its “Cosmonaute” version with a 24-hour graduation, it accompanied Scott Carpenter on his orbital flight aboard the Aurora 7 capsule (1962), thus becoming the first spacegoing wrist chronograph. Continuously made since 1952, the Navitimer is the world’s oldest mechanical chronograph still in production. By now adopting an “in-house” caliber, it is writing a new chapter in a rich history of major achievements and thrilling moments.

Navitimer Caliber 01 limited edition: an exclusive motor powering a legendary model

The Navitimer Caliber 01 special edition is available in two limited series of 2,000 in steel, and 200 in red gold, each bearing an individual number engraved on the side of the case middle. The case features a diameter slightly broader than that of the series-produced Navitimer (43 mm compared with 42 mm). The dial which is made using the “épargne” process on a solid silver or gold base – a sophisticated technique endowing the indications with peerless radiance and readability – is exclusively available in a classic black version with applied hour-markers. Breitling’s winged symbol in gold is slightly raised to stand out from the watch face. The transparent sapphire caseback, a rare feature on Breitling models, provides a unique opportunity to admire the original architecture of Caliber 01 with its column wheel, its oscillating weight and its entirely performance-oriented design. An impressive set of characteristics that are bound to delight devotees of exclusive models – before the series-produced Navitimer models equipped with 100% Breitling calibers take flight next spring.

BREITLING News: Chronomat 01 Limited Edition




Breitling introduces its flagship Chronomat 01 model in a limited series endowed with exclusive finishing and a transparent caseback providing a fascinating view of the 100% in-house made chronograph caliber. A close-up look at elegance and top-flight performances.

First introduced in the spring of 2009, the Chronomat 01 was the first Breitling watch to house Caliber 01, a chronograph movement entirely developed and produced in the brand’s workshops. The leading model in the Breitling collections, this instrument is distinguished by the powerful character of its case, its bezel engraved with original numerals, and its distinctive blend of strength and elegance. Available in a number of different versions, it has established itself as the new benchmark in the field of mechanical chronographs – and indeed as the ultimate chronograph.

For devotees of rare and exclusive timepieces, Breitling now offers this iconic model in limited series of 2,000 in steel and 200 in rose gold, all bearing the individual number engraved at 9 o’clock on the case middle. The strong and unique design of the case, bezel and bracelet is highlighted by subtle contrasted finishing – satin-brushed on the top and polished on the sides. The black dial is adorned with applied hour-markers. Contrary to the standard Chronomat 01 models, equipped with solid steel or gold casebacks, the Chronomat 01 Limited Edition features a transparent sapphire crystal caseback providing optimal views of the in-house made chronograph movement. An exceptional glimpse of this high-performance motor boasting a column-wheel, an entirely original architectural design, and assembled according to a revolutionary industrial process.

Breitling Windrider B-Class

A feminine brand of sophistication


breitling windrider b-class caliber breitling 71
Caliber: Breitling 71 // Battery: CR1616 // Battery life: 6 years

Strictly reserved for ladies, the B-Class provides the refinement one expects from a ladies watch, combined with the reliability required of a sports watch.
