Pre-eminent aviation watch brand Breitling has announced the launch of its new Exospace B55 model.
The watch is the brand’s first connected chronograph and the idea is to place the user’s smartphone in the service of the watch in order to enhance its functionality.
The in-house Caliber B55 boasts analogue and digital display and is equipped with a range of original functions tailor-made for pilots. Among these are an electronic tachymeter, a chronograph recording up to 50 split times and a countdown/count-up system that enables a sequence of countdown and timing operations.
In keeping with the brand’s aviation DNA, the Exospace B55 is fitted with a device that serves to record ‘block times’ (times elapsed from the moment the plane begins to taxi towards take-off through to when it comes to a halt at the end of a mission) and flight times, while memorising departure dates and times, arrival times, as well as takeoff and landing times
The new model will be available from late February 2016 with an RRP of £6,650.
