Flightpath to exclusivity


While the new Airwolf chronograph has a highly distinctive face with its two digital displays, applied numerals and hour-markers and its bezel adorned with a windrose, the most original detail is to be found on the caseback.



This turbine-shaped construction, serving as a resonance chamber for the alarm and the other audible indications, is a marvel of micromechanical engineering. Each of its 24 blades has been cut out with extreme precision and then hand-assembled and fusion-soldered. Adouble caseback system guarantees perfect water resistance to 50 meters.

In a nod towards Breitling’s aeronautical vocation, this motif evoking a jet engine is subtly echoed in the dial decoration. The famous Breitling rack-and-pinion mounted slide-rule ensures optimal read-off precision.

Whether in the generous case dimensions, sophisticated dial details or the finishing of its fluted bezel, the entire design of the Airwolf reflects the perfect melding of form and function, technique and style.

The result is a new top-flight chronograph that is bound to appeal to fans of prowess and performance.
