Baby Boomers for Breitling

A stumbled across a beautiful and well written article about Breitling entitled Baby Boomer Men, Branding & Breitling from the Boomers: A Trip into The Heart of the Baby Boomer Generation blog.

The author, Brent Green, slowly begins his discussion talking about Leon Breitling’s beginnings in America in 1884. He describes the company….

Breitling has contributed to a meticulous industry by engineering chronograph technology onto the wrists of intrepid pilots, giving them measurement capacities needed to propel aviation into the stratosphere and beyond.

…and describes Breitling watches as tools for mankind not just instruments for professionals.

The article then takes an exciting turn and begins to delve into the marketing genius that is Breitling by taking an aesthetic eye to the Breitling website using images and commentary while through in common Baby Boomer characteristics and anecdotes.

Great article… check it out.

Breitling Montbrilliant Watch

Black Breitling Montbrilliant Watch

The Breitling Montbrilliant is not only a watch, but a time machine that goes back to the 1940’s. It’s obvious that Breitling loves to add touches of company history and rich heritage to their watches, and the Breitling Montbrilliant watch was not an objection. According to www.breitling.com, the Breitling Montbrilliant reminds the company of their 1st chronograph factor in La Chaux-de-fonds.

Looking back in Breitling and watch making history; the hands of the Breitling Montbrilliant watch follow the traditional central one-hundredth of an hour indication…the dial was even crafted using the outdated “epargne” method. The Breitling Montbrilliant watch also has a screwed in case with the Breitling logo that was only in use until the mid 20th century.

Under the hood of this classic Breitling watch is still 21st Century technology. The Breitling Montbrilliant watch has a Breitling 41 caliber, self-winding mechanical movement, 42 hour power reserve, 1/4th second, 30 minutes, and 12 hour chronograph, 28,800 vibrations per hour, 38 jewels, dial aperture calendar, water resistance of up to 3 bars, bidirectional bezel with side rule, non screw-locked crown with two gaskets, screwed in back, sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides, and a 38.mm diameter.

Breitling For Bentley Flying B Diamond Watches

Today I ran across two beautiful Breitling for Bentley Flying B diamond watches. The Breitling for Bentley’s Flying B watch is dedicated to the “winged B”, the mascot for British cars. All watches in the collection have a rectangular case and sophisticated design with an original display mode. Luxury is the main component of these two Breitling watches as the hour markers are sculpted from mother of pearl.

These two watches have been crafted in a red gold and white gold series with the best materials the watch industry has to offer. Both of these Breitling For Bentley Flying B watches have beveled sapphire crystal glareproofed sides and a chronometer certified by the COSC.

Breitling Space Going Navitimer Watch

To infinity and beyond! At least that was the idea behind the Navitimer Cosmonaute, Breitling’s official space-going Navitimer. The Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute (get it, like astronaut) was created in the days of early space exploration, those days when going to space and getting there first were the only things that mattered.

So what is the difference between a Breitling Navitimer watch and a Breitling Cosmonaute watch? First the Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute has a Flyback mechanism which allows continuous timing with no need to stop; it starts over all by itself. The Breitling Cosmonaute has 24 hour dial division since night and day mean nothing out in space; that way an astronaut won’t be confused between noon and midnight. Speaking of astronaut, the first person to test this new timepiece in real life situations was Astronaut Scott Carpenter. He bought the Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute into space during this flight on the Aurora 7 space capsule on May 24th, 1962.

Today, the Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute technical specs are pretty impressive and include:

Breitling 22 caliber
self-winding mechanical movement
42 hour power reserve
1/5th second, 30min, 12 hour chronograph with flyback function
28,800 vibrations per hour
38 jewels, dial aperture calendar
3 bar water resistance, bidirectional bezel
non screw-locked crown with two gaskets
screwed in caseback
cambered sapphire crystal with glareproofed sides
41.50 mm diameter

There are six versions of the Breitling watch. My favorite Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute has steel and 18k gold case with silver dial, golden subdials, leather strap, and tang-type buckle, what’s yours?
