Thanks to its double disc, the Transocean Chronograph Unitime displayed at any time, and at the same time, the time in 24 time zones.

“An innovative system with patented mechanism allows the traveller when it changes zone, to correct a single gesture all indications by simply turning the Crown” ensures the brand in its release. If the chronograph and the instruments for professionals have emerged since 1884 as one of the areas of Breitling, watches travel have also played an important role in the history of the brand to the winged “B”.

By sharing all the heyday of the conquest of the air, Breitling did meet pas accompanied the growth of air transport and travel going? In the years 19501960, the brand became famous by a model named Unitime, an automatic watch ‘universal time’ (but without clock at the time)-become a piece of highly sought-after collection.

Today Breitling strengthens his invitation to travel by marrying these two complications (universal time and chronograph) in a new model of the Transocean range, a collection reflecting all the refinement and prestige of luxury long-haul.

More concretely, the Transocean Chronograph Unitime is distinguished by its modern lines allied to a design decidedly vintage. Note the attention to detail: the image of its dial with decor of Earth. It is available in steel or red gold, with a bezel of the cities available in several languages.

Developing the new caliber 05, based on the same architecture that caliber 01, Breitling watchmakers wanted to reinvent “the mechanism of universal time” with a system of adjustment with the comfort of use unprecedented the statement.

Thus, this new model has two mobile drives: a 24-hour drive and a disk bearing the names of 24 cities representing 24 time zones (to be noted that the commonly used city of Caracas has been replaced by Puerto Rico). Central hands time matches the zone posted at 12: 00. The bezel of the cities also contains indications allowing to hold account of daylight savings time.

When the user changes the time zone, please pull out the Crown and rotate it forward or backwards in steps of one hour to correct a single gesture hour, the city disc and disc 24 hours hand. On the calendar, it is automatically adjusted to the date of the local time zone, in a sense as in the other. During these operations, seconds and minutes hands continue to run normally, without any loss of precision, and the current runners are not disturbed.
