New Breitling watch hits stores in region

Swiss luxury watchmaker and aviation chronograph specialist Breitling has introduced the Chronoliner B04 to the Middle East market. 

Issued in a 100-piece limited edition series, with 20 models available for Middle East customers, the Breitling Chronoliner houses the caliber B04 powering a dual time-zone system. 

Enhanced by its all-blue livery, the aviation chronograph has an exclusive new face with a truly timeless look.

Equipped with a special engraved caseback sporting a vintage-look pin-up and “Special delivery” inscription within the Middle East, the watch is available at the 11 Breitling boutiques across the region. 

To accentuate the exclusive nature of this original and high-performance model, Breitling has chosen to combine the steel case with a blue bezel and dial – the latter adorned with silver counters. The matching rubber Aero Classic strap is embossed with a pattern reminiscent of the steel mesh bracelets which equipped the brand’s instruments during the 1950s and 60s. 

Aed Adwan of Breitling Middle East says: “The Chronoliner offers a blend of luxury and performance in an all-blue livery limited series that will appeal to our Middle East aviation aficionados. With its automatic chronograph, its second time-zone display in 24-hour mode and its high-tech ceramic rotating bezel serving to read off a third-time zone, the Chronoliner has asserted itself as the authentic flight captain’s watch. In addition to being the perfect companion for our aviation professionals, the model is also well suited to our jet-setting Middle East customers who frequently travel for both business and pleasure.”

Entirely developed and produced in Breitling’s workshops, the B04 ‘engine’ chronometer-certified by the COSC is distinguished by its extremely functional dual timezone system. To adjust the main hours hand to local time, all the wearer need do is pull out the crown and turn it either way in one-hour increments, without losing any precision in terms of minutes and while ensuring automatic adjustment of the date in both directions. 

The Chronoliner B04 is designed to withstand intensive usage in the toughest conditions, notably thanks to a rugged case water-resistant to 100 m, a sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides, and an ultra-hard, scratch-resistant ceramic bezel featuring a star-shaped cutout that facilitates handling even with gloves.
