Breitling challenged one of today’s most intricate and sophisticated watchmaking technologies and launched the self-made double-chained chronograph movement, once again highlighting the brand’s extraordinary ability in chronograph technology. Breitling Navitimer Replica, dedicated to creating “wrist instruments” for professionals, the carefully crafted Breitling self-made B03 movement, which has applied for two patents, uses innovative construction to ensure the best accuracy, robustness and reliability. Now Breitling has decided to dedicate this major technology leap to its advocates through its most famous Navitimer watch. The new models introduced two versions of stainless steel and red gold, and is equipped with a unique bronze dial.
There are only a handful of watch brands with self-made mechanical chronographs, and a brand that has a patented double-chained chronograph movement that is fully developed and produced in-house is even more rare. Breitling once again confirms the brand’s leadership in the mechanical chronograph watch with the introduction of the Breitling-made B03 caliber, which is owned by the COSC of Switzerland, and reinforces its role in the development of chronograph watches The key role. For nearly a century, Breitling has set a number of key milestones in this area; Breitling pioneered the first independent timing button at 2 o’clock in 1915; Breitling invented the second independent timing button in 1934; 1969 Years, Breitling led the world’s first automatic winding chronograph. Breitling one of the most classic wrist masterpiece – the famous 1944 Duograph watches, is also an integral part of this epic legend; watch with an ultra-thin double-chained chronograph movement, deeply Watch collectors of all ages and sought after.
Double chase timing is recognized as one of the most difficult to create the mechanical watch function; the watch is equipped with two overlapping central chronograph hands, press the chase pin button two pointers will be separated from each other, a pointer still, Used to measure the middle time (split time), and the other one continues to run; when the Chop button is pressed again, the stopped pointer immediately “catches” (French “rattraper”) running pointer. These “supercomplicated” watches are usually only available in smaller quantities and require watchmakers to spend a lot of time adjusting and rating them (correcting the gap between the wheel and pinion, spring tension, and clamps The depth of interspersed, etc.) Breitling uses innovative ways to create this unique machine during the development of a self-made double-chained chronograph movement. Under the brand philosophy of creating the “Wrist Watch for Professionals,” Breitling, a technology-based watch expert, strives to ensure that the swiss movement replica watches still has outstanding ruggedness, accuracy and reliability while mass-producing it, The slogan of the 1940s – Quality in series. Breitling’s goal is to develop a system that ensures optimal performance with a minimum of components to avoid lengthy calibration procedures and, in short, find a simple and efficient solution to complex problems. In order to achieve this goal, the Breitling team took years and conducted in-depth research and testing.
The energy level is one of the major challenges for developers of double-chained chronograph movement. The repeated start and stop of double chasing needles will generate different energy requirements, which will not only affect the timing accuracy but also weaken the watch’s power reserve. One of the ways to deal with this problem is to equip the movement with a separate system for separating the rattrap when the timing is stopped – this is how Breitling does. However, Breitling engineers and watchmakers have re-examined and adapted the traditional configuration of the double-needle timing device in order to find more reliable and effective solutions. They have developed two innovative designs and have patented them. One of the breakthroughs is related to the previously mentioned independent system; the drive mechanism for the rattrapante lever is usually cylindrical in design, and once it is smaller than a given size, it can be particularly complicated to produce. Breitling replaced the traditional latch design with a special stamping, not only to achieve a more accurate shape configuration, but also help to enhance the robustness of the components. Thanks to this independent system, the timing of the needles will no longer affect the timing accuracy and power reserve of the watch. Another innovative technique is related to the chase mechanism of chasing needles; in traditional designs, the watchmakers use a caster-positioned wheel (smooth or with fine teeth) to achieve this function . This brake system is not only difficult to produce, but also to a certain extent the impact of accuracy. Inspired by the bicycle brake pads equipped with rubber pads, Breitling engineers proposed a new design concept of adding a ring seal around the wheel and restricting the clamp by squeezing it. This not only provides precise braking but also simplifies production and further improves system reliability.
Breitling to the previously developed 01 movement as the basis, carefully developed and built a new B03 automatic winding chronograph movement. Breitling Homemade The 01 movement is an excellent, intelligent platform that provides unprecedented ease of use and ease of support for other useful features, including dual time zones and world time displays. Breitling-made B03 caliber brings together the benefits of this high-performance “engine,” including 70-hour power reserve to ensure better rating stability, as well as innovative modular design structures. The new movement’s dual-track needle device consists of just 28 components; Breitling to re-assemble and install most of the parts to a module between the base and the calendar device to effectively simplify the production, assembly and maintenance of the movement; Breitling can directly remove this module from the movement, and its maintenance and repair. Like all other Breitling movements, the new Breitling-made B03 movement boasts the Swiss official Observatory certification (COSC), which represents the highest benchmark for accuracy and reliability.
Breitling Air timing double chase needle watch: extraordinary strength at your fingertips
To better underscore this new “engine” of performance, Breitling has chosen Navitimer, its world-renowned watch to present this new technology. Breitling air time series watch since its inception in 1952, it has become the originator of all types of mechanical chronograph. Breitling Aero Time Double Chasing Watch is equipped with a 45mm case and comes in two different versions – a steel version and a limited edition of 250 red gold with a transparent sapphire case. Both watches feature a unique bronze dial that complements the silver chronograph and inner bezel and perfectly portrays the classic look of the Aviation Timing Series. This watch also has a very delicate details of the design: Air Time Series watch the end of the pointer usually with the famous brand “B” and the anchor logo, but in this watch, this classic design is a Divided into two – red chronograph hands with a “B” character, the end of chasing needle with anchor pattern. This means that when the needles are stopped, the two motifs will be separated from each other; when the hands overlap, they will merge into one another, presenting Breitling’s classic logo. Crown at 3 o’clock position with a chaser timing button, can be used to segment time and compare the results of more than competitors. This ultimate performance mechanical chronograph masterpiece, Breitling legendary series will open a bright new chapter.
