Breitling Hercules Automatic Chronograph with IFR/VFR Flight Level Indicator

Boasting a massive stainless steel case measuring – 44,8 mm in diameter and 15,7 mm thick – the Hercules automatic chronograph is one of the largest models created by Breitling. The multi functional dial available in black, blue or silver versions, offers exceptional legibility: a double display of the times measured, with a 60 min central totaliser plus a linked hours and minutes totaliser at 6 o’clock, distinguishing between times smaller than and greater than 1h.

It additionally includes a 24 h display, an IFR/VFR flight level indicator and a bidirectional bezel with degrees and compass rose. Introduced in 2001, the Breitling Hercules houses an automatic calibre with COSC certification.
