Retro Not To Be Missed Breitling’s New Capsule Series Chronograph Watch Appreciation

For a long time, Breitling has a status that cannot be ignored in the aviation field. Since 1915, Breitling has provided flight pioneers with the first aviation chronograph watch. The advent of Breitling aviation chronographs was favored by pilots, especially those fashionable pilots who flew international or intercontinental flights such as Boeing and Douglas. At this year’s Baselworld, Breitling launched the first capsule series of aviation special edition watches, paying tribute to the legendary airline of Swissair, and at the same time reappearing the cool design style of the last century. Next, we will take the aviation chronograph 1B01 chronograph 43 Swiss Air Special Edition as an example to enjoy it together. (Watch model: AB01211B1B1X2)

  Breitling released a special edition of the aviation chronograph series airlines to pay tribute to the pioneers of civil aviation, to commemorate the symbolic airlines of that era, the brand first selected Swissair (Swissair). This new special edition watch inherits the classic design of the aviation chronograph series, such as the flying slide rule, and integrates the retro personality of the 1960s and 1970s design, and once again leads the trend.

Watch real shot


  The watch uses a 43mm stainless steel case. The classic grooves on the two-way rotating bezel can be identified at a glance. At the same time, there are 60 grooves, each representing a minute scale. From the side, the flying teeth can be polished with a polishing process to enhance the grip.

  The polished crown is engraved with Breitling’s classic logo ‘B’, and the crown is surrounded by a non-slip texture to facilitate time adjustment.

  The design of the disk surface must be very familiar to everyone. The black outer ring and the red and white outer ring can be used with the flight slider to complete a variety of practical calculations, such as fuel consumption rate, sailing time, fuel consumption, and so on. Perform calculations. The red pointer swipes across the dial, which is very dynamic and modern.

  Three silver function dials are very eye-catching on the black dial, and a date display window is also set between the 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock positions. The collision between the three different colors of red, white and black shows the unique trend style of the last century.

  This watch is paired with a vintage black leather strap, which is consistent with the overall style of the watch. The brand also launched a stainless steel woven bracelet models to meet the different needs of watch wearers.

  The movement is equipped with Breitling’s self-made 01 type movement. This self-made chronograph mechanical movement is hailed as one of the industry’s outstanding precision movements, and it does not lose in accuracy and reliability. The transparent case back not only allows us to appreciate the appearance of the movement, but also has the Swiss Airlines logo printed on it to pay tribute to Swissair.

To sum up: This watch is truly stunning in design and color, and it has a different taste in the classic. After that, the brand will also launch other models to pay tribute to the airline.
