Most of the models made by Breitling are intended for men, but this is not the case with the new Galactic 36 Automatic timepiece. This is a very stylish watch for ladies, which tends to combine a refined and luxurious appearance and technical excellence into a single package. It has a pretty generous diameter of 36 mm, which is quite large, considering it is a women’s timepiece, but it just makes it stand out more, while showing off its supreme elegance. It is made with the casing of various materials and finishes and with a broad choice of colors for the dials. Ability to choose among various kinds of leather straps and metal bracelets is an additional perk that brings this Breitling closer to broader audience of women and makes it possible to satisfy wider range of tastes. All of these esthetic qualities are supplemented with impressive watchmaking traits, since this model is supplied with a self-winding mechanical movement.
As it has been previously explained, this is a pretty large watch, considering that it was intended for the fairer sex. The diameter of Galactic 36 Automatic timepiece is 36 mm, its thickness is 12.3 mm and it weighs 65 g (which is approximately equal to 2.3 oz.). Its circular-shaped case can be made from steel (with polished or satin-brushed bezel), with the combination of stainless steel and rose gold (with polished bezels), or completely made from 18K rose gold. The bezel of the model is ratcheted and unidirectional rotating. For those ladies that tend to like an additional doze of sparkle, there is a possibility to choose a bezel with diamond decorations.
Many Choices for Materials, Dials and Bracelets
There are a few available colors for the dial of Breitling 36 Automatic timepiece. Its feature buyers can decide among Volcano black, Copperhead bronze, Stratus silver, Gun blue and mother-of-pearl. As the most luxurious, the manufacturer recommends versions with white mother-of-pearl dials and diamonds on the bezel. Speaking of bracelets, this model can be paired with leather and lizard skin straps in a multitude of different colors, or with the metal bracelets of a Pilot type (5 rows) which are in steel, steel and gold or gold, depending on the material of the case. The back of the case is screwed-in, while the crown is non screw-locked and with two gaskets.
The dial of this ladies’ model by the watchmaker from Grenchen is dominated with a small seconds counter located at the bottom, a square in the center that gives the face the sense of texture, luminous hands and a date aperture at the three o’clock place. The versions which have diamond-encrusted bezels also have eight diamonds on the dial which serve as hour markers. As expected, the face is protected with cambered sapphire glass with double anti-reflective treatment.
When considering the technical specifications of this product, it is important to underline that it is equipped with a mechanical self-winding Breitling B 37 movement (based on ETA 2895-2) that runs on the frequency of 4 Hz, has 27 jewels incorporated in it, and is supplied with a power reserve of at least 42 hours.
