On the occasion of the centennial of the birth of his wrist chronograph, Breitling offers a limited series of Transocean with a new manufacture caliber. This is not a simple remake of the 1915 model, the first chronograph to be operated independent button, but rather, one of its reinterpretation from a technical and aesthetic. This is the famous button chronograph hours 2, but with an elongated shape and more functional, which provides, in succession, startup, shutdown and zeroing of the chronograph functions. For this was developed the unprecedented movement B14, hand-wound, with double column wheel, whose architecture is particular patent pending.
The vintage touch offered by two counters and continuous seconds and minute counters on the dial, surrounded by large indices Arabic numerals, is strengthened by the ancient Breitling replica watches signature to 12, and bracelet-style Milanese mesh. The sapphire crystal case back shows the engraving “100e anniversaire 1915-2015″. 1,915 copies are available for this watch.
