Breitling goes for gold with upscale Chronoliner

The perfect travel timepiece for those at the pointy end of the aircraft.

Breitling Chronoliner Limited EditionYes, you mightn’t need another Breitling if you already have a Navitimer or an Avenger, but this could be the most handsome Breitling yet.

It’s the spanking new limited edition Chronoliner, a triple time-zone treat cased here in red-gold, making it the perfect travel timepiece for those at the pointy end of the aircraft, pilot or passenger alike.

2.Chronoliner Limited EditionWith a diameter of 46mm you won’t miss it, not that the Chronoliner is just about good looks.

There’s the reassurance of a chronometer certified in-house movement, the handy second time-zone display in 24-hour mode on the dial and third time-zone indication via the bezel, and the practicality of 100-meter water resistance. That bezel, by the way, is a high-tech scratch-resistant ceramic.

Chronoliner Limited EditionThen there’s your choice of crocodile or rubber strap with a ‘mesh’ pattern – the latter being the one we’d go for.

Just 250 examples of the Chronoliner are on offer, priced at $41,820. So yes, definitely a first class proposition.
