Rule the Air
Breitling and its aviation appeal once again present a high-performance, luxurious watch in the Chronoliner Limited series. This is the time for 18ct red gold to take centre stage together with scratch-resistant, high-technology black ceramic materials. The Breitling Aero Classic bracelet from reinforced rubber is one strap choice aside from a leather or crocodile leather strap. A chronograph is available to measure flight times and, additionally, two more time zones are displayed in 24-hour mode: the second time zone shown by a red-tipped central hand and the third with a rotating bezel. A COSC-certified, self-winding chronograph ensures maximum precision and reliability, while airtight, cambered sapphire crystal and case back—featuring Breitling's signature stylised planes—provide water resistance up to 100m.
A women's watch is also included here, presenting a simply stunning yet sculptural and sporty piece to all the active ladies out there. deLa Cour's City Medium Romano discreetly sparkles with a diamond setting in the middle, while a similar setting in the City Cadet 1 Romano is surrounded with more diamonds around the elliptical, curvy watch. Both are available in combination of steel or pink gold and black or white mother-of-pearl for the dial. Since the self-winding calibre DC 261 and DC 251 is a work of art, tinted sapphire glass on the back allows admiration. Elegant, hand-stitched crocodile strap in spectrum of colours complete these limited-edition blends of traditional and modern; strong and soft; geometric and curvy beauties.
For the avant-garde art lover, Hautlence's Vortex Bronze is the answer. Limited in number, each piece will grow even more distinctive as the sculpted bronze's living finish will take on a patina as it is integrated into the owner's lifestyle. The self-winding HL2.0 mechanical calibre features half-trailing hours displayed by a chain, retrograde minutes and a power-reserve indicator—all beautifully displayed through openwork case design. Plus, to be more precise by avoiding gravity effects, the cage containing the regulating organ will rotate 60 degrees every 60 minutes. In addition to the bronze case, six three-dimensional, scratch-resistant sapphire crystals make up the glass in providing water resistance up to 30m. The strap is interchangeable between black, hand-sewn padded alligator leather and brown calfskin.
