Breitling has been rekindling vintage-inspired pieces for a while now. Last month, we showed you the in-house Transocean 1915 Mono-pusher Chrono, and before that a 38 mm Transocean Chrono. But, let’s not forget that Breitling’s legacy as a tool watch applies as much in the air as it does on the sea. Its latest release, the Breitling Chronoliner Replica Watches, is an aviation themed watch that evokes images of that bygone era.
When Breitling says that it drew inspiration from vintage pieces in designing this aviator, it’s only natural that we focus on our favorites. If we put on our vintage goggles, we don’t have to look too hard to notice piston pushers and a black bezel on a panda dial – and that means a Breitling Replica Watches as far as vintage aviators are concerned. We covered one here not too long ago.
The new Chronoliner is a large watch. The stainless-steel case is 46 mm wide, and that’s definitely modern sizing. Although, let’s keep in mind that the Co-Pilot’s successor was around Fake Breitling Watches 43 mm at its largest back in the day. A few modern upgrades include a scratch-resistant ceramic bezel, super-luminescent hands and markers, and a second timezone indicated by the red-tipped arrow hand. And while we, and probably quite a few other old souls, would’ve loved it if that window at 3 o’clock would register minutes, it’s just a standard date.
Breitling opted for a solid case back on the new Chronoliner. Inside, you’ll find the Swiss Breitling Replica Watches. Like many movements inside the models of yore that we covered above, it’s a modified ETA Valjoux 7754. Known to be as reliable as a workhorse, it’ll beat at 28,800 bhp for about 42 hours, and it’s self winding.
The design cues of the vintage Cheap Breitling Replica chronographs are there on this new model, from the luminous markers in the minute sub-register to the very specific handset. The rotating bezel constitutes the one main difference, not only because it is made of blue ceramic, which comes with a better resistance to scratches, but also because it shows 24 hours for setting another timezone instead of the original 12 hours for tracking an event. This is all because the Fake Breitling Watches Chronoliner brings something new to the table – a GMT complication with a 24-hour hand, with a direct read-out on that outer scale. As such, this already allows you to track two separate timezones, the local one on the main handset, and the “home” one on this additional hand. The bezel then ends up offering a third timezone, say the time of your next remote destination if you are a fearless pilot, real or imaginary.
The name of this new Breitling tells you all the rest you need to know: B04 stand for the in-house caliber with the GMT complication, while the Boutique Edition both explains where you can find this Breitling Chronoliner Replica and why it is in deep blue. Breitling calls this “Aurora blue” in a nice nod to the aviation world, and this color is frequently used in special releases of the classics, such as the Navitimer, the Cosmonaute, and the Chronomat. While the date window on the Chronoliner will surely have its fair share of detractors, one cannot fail to recognize its neat integration into the dial, as it comes in a matching blue. And again, in terms of convenience, a date makes total sense, especially when you know that it is connected to the local time as to avoid any misunderstanding.
The automatic B04 movement is a variation of the caliber B01, which was launched in 2009 after years of development and is still manufactured to this day by Swiss Breitling Replica Watches. Like the B01, the B04 shows the column-wheel mechanism, which purists prefer to simpler cam-operated chronographs, and it offers a respectable 70-hour power reserve. Like the entire Breitling production since 1999, the Chronoliner is chronometer-certified by the COSC, so accuracy is not a concern here.
