As its name suggests, Breitling Professional Chronospace Military is the watch designed for military pilots and those who enjoy such styling. It is a massive steel timekeeper with combined analog and digital displays, each powered with its thermo-compensated superquartz movement. It supports several additional features such as a very precise stopwatch, a countdown timer, alarm and a second time zone. The black-faced timepiece is set in a black DLC coated stainless steel housing and it is available with two types of wristlets: the first one is made of resilient fabric, while the other one is from mesh steel.
Breitling’s novel watch is clearly made in order to be befitting for military pilots. Some of the traits that point to such origin are its dial, bezel, as well as the most important of them – its supported functions. Chronospace Military has a Volcano black dial with two oversized Arabic numerals and rectangle hour markers in cynober shade. The same color pattern is repeated for its central hands and for two supported digital sub-counters. As for the military origin, it is clear in the fact that the complete face is compatible with night vision goggles. Furthermore, there is also a bi-directional rotating bezel with compass bearings which features star-shaped serrations. This is done to facilitate its handling while wearing gloves.
When the supported features are concerned, Breitling’s novelty from the Professional collection includes the display of time in both 12 and 24 hour formats. It also has a chronograph with the precision of within 1/100th of a second (and with an extraordinary long measurement period – 1/100th of a second shy of one hundred days), a perpetual digital calendar, an alarm, a countdown timer, a second time zone with its independent alarm and finally, an indication for UTC universal time zone. All of these features are enabled with its Breitling Caliber 78 Superquartz movement. The caliber with ETA Thermoline E20.341 base is powered with a battery which can run for minimally two years and maximally for another whole year.
The novel Breitling timepiece is placed inside a substantial round housing made of stainless steel which received black DLC coating. It has the diameter of 46 mm, the thickness of 15.6 mm and it weights exactly 107.9 grams. On its front there is a cambered and double anti-reflective sapphire crystal, while the back is from solid metal. Supported water resistance is 50 meters.
Chronospace Military is available with two types of attachments. Firstly, there is Ocean Classic type of bracelet made from blackened and meshed stainless steel. The other option is Military strap which the brand manufactures from a very resilient fabric. This type of wristlet is available in black and khaki green shade.
