The watchmaker from Grenchen has decided to diversify its not so wide selection of women’s watches with the addition of new Transocean Chronograph 38 model in the palette of products. As most of products from the Transocean lineage, the new ladies’ timepiece is the new iteration of the classic chronographs originating from the middle of the last century. Supplied with a vintage appearance and available in three dial colors and two case materials, this dependable timekeeper runs on a high-end automatic mechanical movement with a COSC certification.
The caliber that the watch uses is Breitling B 41 self-winding chrono movement which was manufactured from the base movement ETA 28 2892-A2 which was subsequently modified in the workshops of the Swiss watchmaker. It is the caliber that functions on the high frequency of 4 Hz which is standard not only for Breitling watches, but for the majority of contemporary timekeepers. The supported power reserve of the 38-jeweled mechanical movement is around 42 hours, while the precision of its chrono function is within 1/4th of a second. It is likewise important to note that the caliber is chronometer-certified by COSC.
Deep Black, Glowing Silver or Midnight Blue
As it is hinted in the name of the timekeeper, this ladies piece features the diameter of 38 mm. Its round case is combined with a beveled bezel and slender lugs and can be in stainless steel or 18K red gold. The rear side of the case is solid and decorated with the engraving of two stylized planes which is the brand’s vintage symbol just like the winged B on the dial of the watch. Due to the construction, the watch can withstand pressure up to 100 meters.
As it has been mentioned, there is the choice of three different options for the color of the dial. Breitling Transocean Chronograph 38 timepiece is available with a deep black, a glowing silver or a midnight blue colored dial. The dial features two nice looking lowered chronograph sub-dials and a date aperture at the bottom. Besides, it sports applied hour markers while the counters are decorated with a spiral motif. Naturally, the elegant face is guarded with a sapphire crystal which is treated with anti-reflective coating from both sides.
As far as the attachment is concerned, the available options are two types of leather strap and a single steel attachment. The straps can be either Barenia or crocodile leather, whereas the third type of wristlet is a steel mash bracelet.
