Breitling showcased its talent for innovating with new materials at its Baselworld 2016 product launch-for example, the chassis and bridge of its new Chronoworks movement are made of ceramics, while its Avenger Hurricane watch uses the exclusive new alloy Breitlight. This year’s new Breitling Breitling watch continues this theme, the case is made of cutting-edge carbon materials used in the chassis of the Formula One racing car.
Breitling’s 45mm case made of Bentley GMT Bo4S carbon fiber is made of high-tech materials. Among them, small carbon fiber bundles with a diameter of only 30 microns are woven into hundreds of layers. The continuous layers are placed at a 45-degree angle to form a certain angle between them. And bonded by thermosetting resin. The finished product produced by this process is very hard in appearance, impact-resistant and matte black. (In addition to high-end racing cars, this material is also used in airplanes and racing cars; this is the first time it is used in fake luxury watches.) The dial is also made of carbon with a distinct weave pattern.
Like its predecessor models (steel, rose gold, and the latest Titanium Light Body version), the watch has the iconic features of the Breitling for Bentley series, including ergonomic curves and asymmetric watches Ears and a large bezel, with a knurling pattern, echo the appearance of the Bentley radiator grille. In addition to the 1/4 second chronograph B04 S Carbon Body is a comprehensive function of all Breitling internal movements, it is equipped with an easy-to-use time zone conversion system, the wearer only needs to pull out the crown and move it forward or backward Rotate to operate. Move the hour hand backward in one-hour increments to set a new local time without being accurate to the minute. The date will also be automatically adjusted to the new local time in either direction. In addition, the scale on the rotating internal pinion bezel is marked with the names of 24 world cities, allowing you to quickly read the time in any other time zone in the world at a glance.
The dial has a small dial for the 30-minute and 12-hour chronographs at 3 and 6 o’clock, and a second hand at 9 o’clock. The GMT pointer installed in the center is red, matching the red frame counter of the chassis, reminiscent of the appearance of a racing instrument panel. The dial also provides a 4:30 date window, protected by curved sapphire crystal glass, and anti-glare on both sides. The screw-in winding crown can waterproof the case to 100 meters.
This Bentley engine is a Calibre B04 caliber automatically manufactured by Breitling, equipped with 47 jewels, with a fast operating frequency of 28,800 vph and an extra long power reserve of more than 70 hours. Like all Breitling movements, it has been certified by the Swiss Official Astronomical Clock Testing Institute (COSC) as an astronomical clock and has been protected by two patents. Breitling’s Breitling GMT light body B04 limited edition uses Breitling’s black rubber “GMT” strap.replica watches review
