Moving Pilot Watches to the Present
Launched in 2015, the since-discontinued Breitling Chronoliner enjoyed a short production run, but still lingers in the minds of many collectors. These modern pilot’s chronographs were inspired by Breitling's watches from the 1950s and 60s, focusing on readability and robust functionality. Striving to fulfill its duty of being a highly functional suite, Chronoliner model offerings include pieces with GMT functions up to three time zones, water resistance up to 100m, in-house calibers like the B04, a ceramic bezel, and luminescent indices and hands. Another compelling element of this collection is the modified Valjoux 7754 movement that’s featured in some iterations—this movement is also known as the Breitling caliber B24 and comes with COSC chronometer certification. For those looking for a particular style, the Chronoliner is available in gold and stainless steel, as well as a few limited editions in red gold.
