Breitling offers a limited edition of its Chronospace instrument for pilots dedicated to the Breitling Jet Team, the world’s only civilian flight team performing on jets. An exceptional chronograph for an exceptional unit.
Having been treated to a whole new look in 2010, the Breitling Jet Team continues to distinguish itself by its breathtaking aerobatics shows performed at speeds of almost 700 km/h.
In tribute to its stunning feats, Breitling has created a 1,000 piece limited edition of the Chronospace, the latest of its instruments for professionals. This model is distinguished by the silvery dial adorned with the new team logo and with a plane representing one of the seven L-39 Albatros jets composing it.
Based on cutting-edge electronics, the Chronospace offers a full range of functions that are useful to elite pilots such as those of the Breitling Jet Team – including 1/100th of a second chronograph with split times, alarm, countdown, dual timezone display with independent alarm, and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). It is powered by a Breitling SuperQuartzTM movement that is ten times more accurate than an ordinary quartz caliber. The LCD screens are equipped with a backlighting system guaranteeing optimal read-off by day or night.
The double caseback amplifies sound signals up to a level of 90 decibels. The circular slide rule serving to handle all calculations relating to airborne navigation is activated by rotating the star-shaped bezel – an original and extremely ergonomic design. The satin-brushed woven steel Aero Classic bracelet accentuates the original character of this sturdy, efficient and accurate wrist instrument.
