Breitling Transocean Chronograph Unitime Watch - Ideal for Travelling

Mar 22, 2012
Breitling launches its new "world time" chronograph timepiece the Transocean Chronograph Unitime watch. The novelty is animated by a new caliber, developed and produced independently by the brand. It has been inspired by the brands initial Unitime self-winding "world time" model that enjoyed great success in the 1950s - 60s and became popular among collectors.

The new Breitling watch, incorporating a special double disk, simultaneously and continuously shows the time in all 24 timezones. The owner of the watch simply turns the crown to switch between time-zones and adjust all the indications at once.

The timepiece demonstrates modern, pure lines and thorough attention paid to every detail. Its black or "polar" white dial is embellished with a globe pattern. The city bezel has been created in several languages.

The Transocean Chronograph Unitime is powered by the new Caliber 05 based on the brands Caliber 01.

The world time mechanism is built with an extremely user-friendly adjustment system. The watch incorporates two mobile disks - a 24-hour disk and a disk with the names of 24 cities referring to 24 timezones of the world. The time indicated by the hands in the center corresponds to the time in the timezone featured at 12 o'clock. The city disk is also provided with indications necessary to consider "summer" or daylight saving time (DST).

To change between timezones, the watch owner pulls out the crown and turns it forwards or backwards in one-hour increments thus correcting the hours and the disks in just one move.
It is easy to adjust the calendar to the date that corresponds to local time. It is important to mention that during the adjustment the minute and seconds hands continue their run with utmost precision and without disturbing the running chronograph timing operations.

The case of the Breitling Transocean Chronograph Unitime watch is rendered in stainless steel or red gold. It is coupled with a leather strap or a steel Milanese bracelet.
