The Transocean Chronograph Edition offers exactly what we have come to expect from Breitling and its high quality watches.

The dial bears two retro-styled counters and a date window at the 6 is decorated with a twin-zone sliver toned design, applied hour-markers and the initial B appearing in 18K gold. Along with the typical flamboyance we expect from Breitling the Transocean holds a more concealed surprise, turning the watch reveals a steel case with a double back protector providing space for a personalised engraving and a sapphire crystal. This allows for a chance to admire the eminence performance of the manufacture Breitling.

The Transocean Chronograph Edition was inspired by a star model from 1958: a precise watch that was shock resistant, non-magnetic and also water resistant that admirably accompanied the boom in intercontinental air travel. The Transocean looks to reflect the spirit of great journeys and extravagant long haul private aircraft. Breitling T1
