The New Breitling Transocean

  • The offer uncluttered elegance and the choice of a polished bezel for those who lean towards plainer aesthetics. This is an extensive selection which on its own would easily fill up an entire glass cabinet or jeweller’s shop window display. It offers a beautiful miscellany of models and clients can choose from slate-coloured dials or silver-plated dials with or without diamond-set bezels, each of which has a perfectly positioned and proportioned date window at the 3 o’clock location. Alligator leather strap options include black, dark brown, grey, orange, and lilac or there is an option of a Milanaise mesh bracelet. The breitling Super Avenger II replica power to these pieces attaining a power reserve of 42 hours.

    The breitling navitimer replica were first manufactured in the 1930’s and those who know this collection will already be smitten by its flawless and timeless charm – it has understated styling, a handsome face and with Breitling- manufactured calibres providing the power, these models are hard to pass especially if you fancy stepping away from more brashy sports timers to the much more genteel dress watch/chronograph genre into which Breitling have slipped their Super Avenger II models.

    The silver plated dial option features applied hour markers and principal numerals with luminous blue fill, and its blue/grey day/night rehaut is much more pronounced than the black/grey equivalent as found on the black dial model which, with its more sober use of colour, gives it more of an air of gravitas.The new Breitling Ingenieur Dual Time is powered by the Calibre 35720 automatic self winding movement and its properties include the ability to adjust only the hours to faciliate what Breitling term as TZC (or Time Zone Correction).The Ingenieur has enjoyed a long standing association with the Mercedes AMG motorsport division, and with ambassadors like Lewis or Nico to wear them, the new Ingenieurs will surely enjoy their days in the sun and champagne as the drivers continue to step out onto the top steps of the F1 podiums around the globe this year.

    Should the bezel accidentally move underwater, diver safety won’t be compromised. Clockwise movement of the external bezel will be ignored and the internal bezel will remain unaffected. Counter-clockwise movement of the external bezel will cause the indicated start time to be stated earlier than the actual time, preventing the diver exceeding the planned period underwater.This is a true diver’s watch, water resistant to 30 bar (300 metres). However, like many men, I would not select this model for its underwater capabilities, but rather for its robust hewn-from-granite construction and dashing good-looks. Indeed, this is a watch infused with a substantial quotient of testosterone.
