The Professional line is the showcase for Breitling’s technological expertise, not only in the field of electronics, but also in that of mechanical watchmaking. Witness the Skyracer, a selfwinding chronograph designed to be the most efficient in its category. With his in mind, Breitling has equipped it with the new Caliber 27, an exclusive mechanism enabling dual visualization of measured times. On one side, the 60-minutes totalizer with centre pointer guarantees peerless readability of any measurement under 1 hour. For longer durations, a single two-hand counter shows both the hours and minutes. This means the time elapsed is read off just as one reads the time, instantly and with no risk of confusion. This impressive efficiency is reinforced by a slide-rule, featuring simple and direct handling. Thanks to a toothed wheel system, this rotation drives a pinion and an arbor acting on the inner bezel. This operation may be performed with extreme accuracy in both directions. The resolutely aviation-oriented vocation of the Skyracer is also visible on the caseback, carrying a reminder of the essential symbols of the Ground Air Visual Signal Code. REF. A2736223/C712

Breitling was founded in 1884. The brand counts among its earliest achievements the invention of the independent chronograph pushpiece in 1915 and the separation of the start/stop functions from that of resetting in 1923. The connection of Breitling with the world of aviation is said to have taken off in the early 1930’s, when the brand started creating onboard chronographs intended for … aircraft cockpits. With the introduction of the Navitimer in the first half of the 1950’s, Breitling had created what would prove to be one of the most iconic and everlasting pilots watch designs yet: the model hasn’t been out of production since. A variation of this model accompanied Scott Carpenter on his orbital flight aboard the Aurora 7 capsule in 1962. In the sixties, Breitling was part of the ‘Project 99’ consortium that was created with the aim of creating the first self-winding chronograph movement – the one that would become the caliber 11. Although the so-called ‘Quartz Crisis’ had hit Breitling hard, the brand would be one of the first to launch a completely new mechanical chronograph in the mid-eighties: the Chronomat. This watch would become another icon for Breitling and would serve as a catalyst for the industry as a whole. Besides the Navitimer and the Chronomat, the Emergency is arguably the third most emblematic model – featuring a never-before-seen transmitter system that couldn’t have been conceived by any other brand than Breitling. The 2009 introduction of the caliber 01 gave Breitling a in-house chronograph movement and it would serve as the base for a number of variations over the next few years. Breitling is the only company of this scale to submit 100% of its movements for COSC-certification, including the quartz calibers.
