New Transocean Chronograph Limited Editition timekeeper by Breitling is heavily influenced by the original Transocean model from the 1950s. It includes a charming two-tone silver and gold dial with a pair of sub-counters for its chronograph feature. The watch is supplied with the brand’s in-house Breitling B 01 caliber which can be observed thorough a double case-back with a protective cover. As for the dimensions of the newcomer, they are more contemporary than classic since the watch is pretty thick and has the diameter of 43 mm. Breitling Transocean Chronograph Limited Edition is launched in a 2,000-piece series.
The recognizable vintage styling of the novel watch is mostly executed with the addition of a charming two-tone dial. Its background is in Mercury silver shade which is complemented with a gold-colored ring. The two-tone face features two chrono counters which is pretty unusual for modern-day Breitling timekeepers. One of the supported counters is a 30-minute chrono sub-dial, while the other one is used for small seconds. Apart from these sub-counters, the dial likewise includes a date aperture at the bottom of the face and a tachometric scale at its periphery. There are also applied gold hour markers and the vintage brand’s “flying B” logo in the same material.
Breitling Transocean Chronograph Limited Edition timekeeper is made with a round housing made of stainless steel. The case is 43 mm wide and has the thickness of 15.9 mm. It features a double case-back which allows the wearer to see the functioning of the timekeeper’s movement and provides a place for a personalized engraving. The front side of the watch features a domed sapphire crystal with glare-proof coating. Unlike most of other models by the Grenchen-based watchmaker, the bezel is in this case fixed. The overall weight of the piece without the attachment measures to precisely 109.5 grams. It should also be said that the watch is waterproof to 100 meters.
Inside the steel housing is automatic Breitling B 01 caliber. The famed premier in-house movement by the brand integrates 47 jewels, it operates at the frequency of 4 Hz and it possesses a power reserve storage that lasts for minimally 70 hours, depending on the use of the chrono feature.
The latest newcomer from the Transocean collection comes with several different types of attachments. A mash steel bracelet is the basic one and probably the best match for the vintage-styled dial. Other than that, the watch can be paired with a plain leather strap, a crocodile leather wristlet, a Military-type strap made of fabric, as well as with another type of a steel bracelet. The wristlet in question is Air Racer with circular perforations.
