With its clear external references to pilot’s watches from the 1950s and 60s this chronograph is one of Breitling’s plainest models. After the steel version and a limited red gold edition the Chronoliner is now also available as a modern interpretation, completely in black. A ceramic bezel on top of the DLC-coated, 46mm case and a black rubber strap with a woven pattern create an image of dark masculinity.
The strap refers to the woven steel Aero Classic bracelets. Inside you will find the Breitling calibre 24 with a 42-hour power reserve. Chronometer-certified by the COSC, but that’s par for the course at Breitling. In addition to a chronograph the Chronoliner also proves itself with three time zones. The usual two hands, a rotating bezel for the second time zone and a red-tipped hand for the third one. The latter has a 24-hour indicator, a very practical way of showing the difference between day and night in the time zone in question.
