The Bentley GMT Light Body B04 chronograph welcomes two new interpretations of its extremely original design: one in black titanium, and the other in a more compact diameter. Beneath the taut, sporty bodywork beats a manufacture Breitling Replica Navitimer UK movement with an incomparably user-friendly second timezone display.
Equipped with an ultra-light titanium case, the Bentley GMT Light Body B04 combines the quintessence of British chic with exceptional ‘motorization’. It is distinguished by its daring design featuring asymmetrical lugs, a black rubber strap, ergonomic pushpieces and a bezel with a knurled motif inspired by the Bentley radiator grilles. This keen traveller now takes to the road in two new versions: the Bentley GMT Light Body B04 Midnight Carbon, featuring a case with a highly resistant black carbon-based coating; and the Bentley GMT Light Body B04 S, with a ‘natural’ titanium 45 mm case and black or silver dial. These mechanical timepieces are distinguished by their unprecedented user friendliness. To adjust the main hour hand to local time, the user simply pulls out the crown and turns it in either direction in one-hour increments – a manoeuvre that also automatically corrects the date both backwards and forwards. This feat is driven by Manufacture Breitling Replica Super Avenger UK Calibre B04, which has been rewarded by two patents. As an additional practical travel feature, the rotating inner bezel bearing the names of 24 cities enables at-a-glance readings of the time in all the world’s timezones in relation to the time shown by the 24-hour hand (home time). The dial featuring a stamped circular raised motif displays excellent readability, enhanced by oversized luminescent hands and hour-markers and red-rimmed counters reminiscent of automobile dashboards. The Bentley GMT Light Body B04 Midnight Carbon model is also equipped with a transparent caseback providing a chance to admire the selfwinding B04 chronograph movement, chronometercertified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), like all Replica Breitling Super Ocean UK for Bentley ‘engines’. Two new companions to tear up the tarmac – or hurtle across the sky – with a blend of elegance and precision.
It crosses continents with a new Manufacture Breitling Replica Chronospace worldtime caliber affording unprecedented user friendliness. It flies straight to the future with a new ultra-resistant tungsten carbide bezel. A double revolution from Breitling.
The Galactic collection welcomes a new model that is innovating on all fronts. First and foremost, a technical breakthrough, with the new B35 “in-house” caliber. This selfwinding worldtime movement (the very first Manufacture Breitling caliber with no chronograph function) is distinguished by its revolutionary 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. To provide this unprecedented functionality, Breitling has developed two patented innovations relating to the differential system and the connection between the city disk and the movement. Caliber B35 (chronometer-certified like all Breitling Replica Emergency UK movements) is also protected by two other patents for the winding and time-setting systems. This set of inventions and optimized features aim to reinforce the performance, functionality and reliability of the movement, entirely in keeping with the brand’s ‘aeronautical’ philosophy.
The tungsten era
The second revolution is of an aesthetic nature. 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 futuristic 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 further reinforced by oversized hands and hour-markers enhanced with a luminescent coating. Galactic Unitime SleekT: a sporty, travel-friendly and sophisticated watch for all those who love to combine here and elsewhere, present and future – entirely in tune with the Replica Breitling Montbrillant UK spirit of “instruments for professionals”.
The Transocean Unitime Pilot combines an innovative Manufacture Breitling Replica Aeromarine UK caliber featuring an ultra-practical worldtime system, with a technical look echoing Breitling’s grand tradition of watches for aviators.
From the first Breitling Replica Bentley onboard chronographs in the 1930s to the legendary 1952 Navitimer, along with countless models dedicated to skyborne heroes, the black dials with white indications have always been a token of recognition as the best instruments for pilots. The Transocean Unitime Pilot highlights this understated, readable and functional design by teaming a satin-brushed steel case with a steel mesh bracelet. Thanks to its entirely crown-adjustable worldtime system (one smooth move corrects all indications, including the date, either forwards or backwards), this high-performance automatic chronograph proves the ideal partner for all those who – whether in the cockpit or the passenger compartment – constantly juggle with timezones around the world. Manufacture Breitling Caliber B05 with its patented mechanism is chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), the ultimate benchmark in terms of precision and reliability. The Transocean Unitime Pilot is also available with a blue dial, a polished red gold case, as well as in a 1,000-piece limited series with a black steel case and bracelet. Each to his own flight plan.

Breitling Replica Navitimer UK refers to its new Galactic Unitime SleekT — one of the timepieces the Swiss brand is unveiling this week at Baselworld 2015 — as a “double revolution.” So what are these two revolutions? Scroll down for details.
One of the factors that sets the Breitling Galactic Unitime SleekT apart is its spanking-new manufacture movement — automatic Caliber B35, which is the first in-house Breitling movement since the debut of its base B01 caliber without an integrated chronograph function. Instead, Caliber B35’s technical focus is on its easy-to-use world-time feature, which enables the user to pull out the crown and simply turn it backward or forward in both directions for smooth and easy adjustments of both the local time and date. (Previous Breitling Unitime watches — including the original Transocean model and another in the Breitling for Bentley collection — have been equipped with Caliber B05, which incorporated both the innovative world-time function as well as a chronograph.)
Breitling Caliber B35 uses two patented technologies, for the differential system and for the connection between the movement and city disk (the rotatable ring around the dial’s periphery, printed with the names of 24 world cities, that enables the user to set the time to that of his current location), as well as two other patents for the winding and time-setting systems. Furthermore, accuracy as well as ease of use has been taken into account: like all Breitling Replica Super Avenger UK movements, Caliber B35 has been officially certified as a chronometer by the Swiss testing agency COSC. The movement has a frequency of 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 70 hours.
The other “revolutionary” aspect of the Breitling Galactic Unitime SleekT is on the outside of the watch: a new, smooth-surface bezel made of tungsten carbide, a high-tech, uber-resistant material made by molding tungsten powder at extremely high heat and under extreme pressure. The resulting substance is almost five times harder than steel and highly resistant to scratches. The slightly darker shade of the Galactic’s tungsten carbide bezel provides a subtle contrast with the 44-mm steel case, which is water-resistant to 100 meters and features a screw-locked crown and domed sapphire crystal with double-sided glareproof coating.
The city ring and 24-hour disk surround a striking, filigree globe-pattern dial — in either “Trophy black” or “Antarctica white” — adorned with large hour markers and hands, all enhanced with luminescent coating. The first versions of the Breitling Galactic Unitime SleekT, which the watch world will see this week at Baselworld, are both outfitted with Replica Breitling Super Ocean UK familiar Pilot bracelet.
