Nieuw in Basel: Breitling Galactic Unitime SleekT - Calibre B35

Breitling Galactic Unitime SleekT

The Galactic collection welcomes a new model with the new B35 “in-house” calibre. This selfwinding worldtime movement (the very first Manufacture Breitling automatic caliber with no chronograph function) is distinguished by its simple operation. Pulling out the crown and turning it forwards or backwards in one-hour increments is enough to correct all the dial indications in one smooth move, including automatic adjustment of the date to local time, in both directions. Like all Breitling movements Calibre B35 is chronometer-certified by COSC.

The case is fitted with a brand-new smooth bezel in tungsten carbide, an ultra-resistant high-tech composite material of which the original shade makes a subtle contrast with the polished steel. Tungsten carbide is made from tungsten powder molded at a high temperature and under extremely high pressure. The result is incomparable hardness almost five times greater than that of steel, as well as a scratch-resistant surface able to withstand hard knocks and wear over time. This ring surrounds a black or white dial with a mobile city disk, 24-hour disk and a center adorned with a filigree-worked globe pattern. Readability is reinforced by oversized hands and hour-markers enhanced with a luminescent coating.
