The Transocean Chronograph revives the pure design of the classic 1950s and 1960s chronographs in a resolutely contemporary style. The slender, understated fuselage carries a high-performance “engine”, Caliber 01, which is entirely developed and produced at Breitling Chronométrie. The dial is a paradigm of clarity and readability featuring sophisticated details such as applied hour markers and finely recessed, snailed counters.
A specialist of technical watches, Breitling has played a crucial role in the development of the wrist chronograph and is a leader in this complication. The firm has shared all the finest moments in the conquest of the skies thanks to its sturdy, reliable and high-performance instruments. One of the world's only major watch brands to equip all its models with chronometer-certified movements, the ultimate token of precision, Breitling is also one of the rare firms to also produce its own mechanical chronograph movements, entirely developed and manufactured in its own workshops. The company is moreover one of the last remaining Swiss watch brands independent of any watchmaking group.
