The Grenchen-based company, Breitling, has presented a new travelers timekeeper named Transocean Chronograph GMT. Supplied with the proprietary caliber B04 which enables a chronograph, as well as the supported second time zone, the timepiece will be made in a limited edition which includes 200 copies in red gold and 2,000 more in steel. Featuring a nice guilloche motif on its face, the dial of the traveler’s timekeeper by Breitling can be either black or silver.
When compared to the rest of the brand’s palette of products, this novel watch is not so ground-breaking, especially since it replicates the features already present in several other models by Breitling which are likewise made with B04 caliber (for example, Chronomat GMT or Bentley B04 GMT). That being said, the watch is still quite nice, especially since it operates with the help of an in-house column-wheel chronograph caliber. As its predecessors, Transocean Chronomat GMT’s beating heart has 47 jewels and is supplied with an instantaneous date feature, a customizable index regulator system, auto-centering reset hammers, as well as with an automatic winding and a power reserve of 70 hours.
Still, there are quite a few subtle details that distinguish the model from the rest of Breitling’s watches, namely the fine guilloche motif present on the watch’s face which can be in black or silver color. The dial furthermore includes applied hour markers, hollowed counters and naturally, a red hand which is used to show the GMT time.
As it has been mentioned, the manufacturer offers the watch in a housing that is made from steel or 18 K red gold. The 43 mm wide casing features sapphire sections on both the front and the back of the case. So far, Breitling has not revealed the thickness of the model. Moreover, Breitling Transocean Chronograph GMT features a fixed bezel and the lug width of 22 mm.
There are quite a few available options for the wristlet of the watch. The latest traveler’s timepiece by Breitling can be combined with Barenia leather or crocodile leather strap in plethora of colors. For the steel version, the choice likewise includes an Ocean Classic steel bracelet (steel mash wristlet).
