“You simply donnot become official supplier to world aviation by chance” 2016-01-19 Since 1884, Breitling has played a crucial role in the development of the wrist chronograph and is a leader in this complication. The firm has shared all the finest moments in the conquest of the skies thanks to its sturdy, reliable and high-performance instruments. One of the world’s only major watch brands to equip all its models with chronometer-certified movements, the ultimate token of precision, Breitling is also one of the rare companies to produce its own mechanical chronograph movements, entirely developed and manufactured in its own workshops. From January 1st to March 31st 2016, Breitling is showcasing a selection of its contemporary watches at Oriental Watch, featuring the Navitimer 01 46mm, the Avenger Blackbird 44, the Superocean II 44mm and the Colt Automatic.

A transparent caseback provides a chance to admire the officially chronometer-certified high-performance selfwinding chronograph movement, Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01. In addition to the steel and steel&gold versions, this model comes in a red gold limited series. A larger-than-life take on the legend. Avenger Blackbird 44 The high-performance, accurate and functional Avenger Blackbird 44 embodies a concentrated blend of the Breitling spirit. Its watchword is ‘power in action’. The light and sturdy titanium case features a highly resistant black carbon-based treatment, resulting in a ‘stealth’ look accentuated by its satin-brushed appearance. The dial is distinguished by its excellent readability, while the unidirectional rotating bezel with rider tabs keeps extremely precise count of flight or dive times. Superocean II 44 Equipped with a sturdy 44 mm-diameter case in satin-brushed steel, this latest-generation diver’s watch is distinguished by its exceptional water resistance to a depth of 1,000 m (3,300 ft) and its ultra-readable black or blue dial bearing oversized numerals and hands enhanced with a luminescent coating. It houses an officially chronometer-certified selfwinding movement. A security valve serves to equalize the differences in pressure between the inside and the outside of the case. Colt Automatic The understated, efficient style of the Colt Automatic perfectly reflects its original vocation: that of a watch intended for the armed forces. The satin-brushed bezel features four rider tabs ensuring excellent handling and optimal protection for the sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides. The black, blue or silver dials are enlivened by a fine circular raised motif. The polished steel case – water-resistant to 200 m (660 ft) and fitted with a screw-locked crown with protective reinforcements – houses a chronometer-certified self-winding movement.
