The Breitling Airwolf Watch

The Breitling Airwolf watch was made for professional pilots in mind.  Why? Maybe the 1/100th of a second chronograph with split times, maybe the beautifully engineered alarm and countdown feature, the 2nd timezone and UTC calender? All of these are good reasons as to why the Breitling Airwolf is a professional pilot’s watch. However, the real reason is Breitling’s history with providing aviation professionals with quality timepieces.

The Breitling Airwolf has a stunning backlighting system which allows night-time read-off along with ergonomic curving chronograph push pieces and water resistance of up to 5 bars.  The movement of the Breitling Airwolf is astounding including SuperQuartz, thermocompensated quartz electronic, 12/24 hr LCD digital display, and an EOL indicator.  At 1/100th of a second, max. 99 days, 23 hrs 59 min, 59.99 sec, this Breitling chronograph is worthy of the best pilots wrist.  A bidirectional bezel with pinoin mechanism and a non screw-locked crown with two gaskets and integrated push piece accent with this Breitling watch.

A must for any aviation professional that travels around the globe.

The new 49 mm-diameter Chrono-Matic by Breitling was designed with accents from the 1960s and 1970s by adding angular lines, geometrical hands, square base, and the simple B symbol at 12 o’clock. My favorite part of the Breitling Chrono-Matic 49 is the red-rimmed totalizers and second hand… they simply jump out as you glance at this Breitling watch.
