Breitling American Tribute Limited Edition Watch - High Contrasts and Legibility

Nov 21, 2011
On the occasion of the Veteran’s Day, the house of Breitling has issued its new American Tribute Limited Edition watch.

An expression of deep respect to the veterans of all wars, the novelty is delivered in a 44mm tonneau-shaped case. Its thickness is 16.95mm. The new Breitling watch is crafted from polished and satin-finished stainless steel. The case is offset by a round-shaped bezel, produced from the same material.

On its front side the model is assembled with a sapphire crystal, glare-proofed on both sides. The back part of the case is solid and bears a “United We Stand” engraving. The watch provides 500-meter water-resistance.

Housed in the case is a black and white dial, touched with colorful nuances. Its readability is ensured by the inclusion of luminous substance into applied hour-markers and hands. The display indicates central hours and minutes. The small seconds tick away in a counter at 9 o’clock.

The chronograph features are presented through a 30-minute sub-dial at 3 o’clock, a 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock as well as a central seconds hand. The date indication appears in an aperture between 4 and 5 o’clock. Completing the range of the useful functions is a tachymeter scale, featured on the extremity of the dial.

The new Breitling American Tribute Limited Edition watch is powered by a Swiss made in-house manufactured automatic Breitling Caliber 01 (B01) movement, certified as a chronometer by the COSC. Built on 47 jewels, it operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and allows for a 70-hour power reserve.

Offered in a limited edition of 50 pieces, the new Breitling watch comes fitted with a stainless steel pilot bracelet.
