Breitling Chronoliner Watch Review

Breitling has revealed the new Chronoliner, a chronograph inspired by a classic timepiece from the 1950s and 60s.

Described as "the authentic flight captain's watch", the Chronoliner can be used to measure flight times and includes a second timezone display in 24-hour mode, enabling the wearer to juggle time differences around the world. The original model was launched in an era when Breitling was already called the "official supplier to world aviation", and this modern interpretation was design to continue this longstanding tradition. "The new Chronoliner reinterprets the spirit of aviation in an original and timeless style," the brand explains.

The Breitling Chronoliner has a broad, black bezel in scratch-resistant high-tech ceramic, with a star-shaped cut out to facilitate handling. The white ceramic numerals ensure optimal contrast. The watch is powered by the Breitling 24 calibre with a minimum 42-hour power reserve. As with all Breitling watches, the chronograph is officially chronometer-certified by the COSC.

The Chronoliner has a 46 mm case in polished steel, and comes with a distinctive steel mesh bracelet. The dial is in black with white luminescent hour markers and oversized hour/minute hands. The case back features an image of stylised planes, a longtime Breitling signature. The second timezone is read using the red-tipped hand and rotating bezel with its graduated 24-hour scale.
