Hitting the spot in black and blue

By appearing with a sturdy and light black titanium case framing a blue dial with tone-on-tone counters, the electronic Chronospace chronograph from Breitling adopts a strong and original new persona, while maintaining its sterling qualities as an instrument for professionals.

 

The spirit of performance is immediately perceptible in the sheer power of black satin-brushed titanium, achieved by a high-resistance carbon-based treatment, combined with the original note struck by a deep blue dial. Like all Breitling ‘instrument panels’, the indications are distinguished by their optimal legibility, with large square numerals and hands accentuated by a luminescent coating. The unidirectional rotating bezel ensures an excellent grip thanks to its four rider tabs – a Breitling signature – serving to mark off times. The case is water-resistant to 100 m (330 ft) and equipped with protective reinforcements for its screw-lock crown.

Beneath its exclusively analog displays, a notable exception in the Breitling Professional range, the Chronospace Evo Night Mission conceals the best of high-tech capabilities, with a SuperQuartz™ movement ten times more accurate than standard quartz. Chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), this Caliber 73 combines several functions that are useful to pilots and adventurers. The chronograph notably features a split-seconds function with an additional central hand serving to measure intermediate times, while the fast timezone adjustment system ensures uninterrupted precision of the minutes and seconds displays. The intrepid and sporty nature of this model is accentuated by a rubber strap embossed with the Breitling signature.
