Breitling Cockpit Lady WatchOn December 17, 2008 by breiblog
Branded as Breitling’s “feminine version of time” the Breitling Cockpit Lady Watch holds technical specifications that allow it to play with the big boys. We’ve talked about this Breitling watch at the Breitling Watch Blog before, but we haven’t really gone deep into the watch’s technical background.
When Breitling designed the Breitling Cockpit Lady watch for the Breitling Windrider Collection, balance was a large aspect of the planning. Breitling wanted a women’s watch that was able to perform yet look elegant and remain reliable. Even though they made it look easy, sometimes designing a women’s watch with all the techs of a bulky man’s watch is not easy. Every aspect of the Breitling watch screams femininity, sleekness, and variety by using dial colors, straps, bracelets, and materials.
Breitling Cockpit Lady Watch Technical Specifications
The Breitling Cockpit Lady Watch includes a Breitling 71 caliber, SuperQuartz movement, EOL indicator, and a thermo-compensated quartz electronic movement. The calendar of the Breitling watch is a dial aperture and the case of the Breitling Cockpit Lady includes a variety of materials including steel, two-tone, steel & gold, or 18k rose gold. The Breitling cockpit Lady Watch includes 100 m of water resistance paired with an un-directional yet ratcheted bezel and a non screw-locked crown with three gaskets. Measuring at a petite 31.80 mm in diameter, the Breitling Lady Cockpit has a screwed in back and cambered glareproofed sapphire crystal on both sides.
As with the variety of cases, the straps and bracelets come in a variety of colors as well. First is the Breitling Pilot Bracelet, which similar to the cases, come in steel, two-tone, or 18k rose gold. If a strap is chosen, the wearer has the choice of pairing the Breitling Cockpit Lady watch with either a leather strap in blue, black, gold or brown; a crocodile strap in either black or gold; a lizard strap in either yellow, brown, green, red, blue, black, orange, pink or navy blue; or a Diver Pro strap in either blue or black.
For example, the woman’s diamond watch above is a Breitling Lady Cockpit Watch with a steel case and a bezel studded with diamonds. A mother of pear dial set with eight diamonds at the 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, and 11 o’clock markers. A date clock sits at the 3 o’clock marker and the 12, 6, and 9 o’clock markers use Roman numeral hour indicators. This Breitling watch also comes with a red lizard strap with a tang-type buckle.
