By appearing with a sturdy and light black titanium case framing a blue dial with tone-on-tone counters, the electronic Chronospace chronograph from Breitling adopts a strong and original new persona, while maintaining its sterling attributes as an instrument for professionals.
The spirit of performance is immediately perceptible in the sheer power of black satin-brushed titanium, achieved by a high-resistance carbon-based treatment, together with the original note struck by a deep blue dial. Like all Breitling ‘instrument panels’, the indicators are distinguished by their their optimal legibility, with large square numerals and hands enhanced by a luminescent coating. The unidirectional rotating bezel ensures an excellent grip thanks to its four rider tabs – a Breitling signature – serving to mark off times. The case is water-resistant to 100m and equipped with protective reinforcements for its screw-lock crown.
Beneath the hard, yet cool, exterior a notable exception in the Breitling Professional range. The Chronospace Evo Night Mission conceals the best of high-tech capabilities, with a SuperQuartz movement ten times more accurate than standard quartz. Chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), this Caliber 73 combines several functions that are useful to pilots and adventurers. The chronograph notably features a split-second function with additional central hand serving to measure intermediate times, while the fast timezone adjustment system ensures uninterrupted precision of the minutes and seconds display.
