Breitling rightfully prides itself on being the “official supplier to world aviation,” as their Chronoliners have been worn by flight captains since the 1950s. For 2015, the Swiss watchmakers have revealed a new Chronoliner directly inspired by its vintage forerunners. The three-register chronograph is COSC-certified and tells the time to the hour hour, minute, second, date, and alternate time zone. The design boasts a house-made automatic movement and a cambered sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. Dressed up in black and white, the ceramic bezel features contrasting ceramic numerals with luminescent hour markers, making this practical, scratch-resistant design highly legible. The case is made of polished steel, matching the Navitimer or Ocean Classic steel mesh bracele
