Since 1884 Breitling have been a specialist in technical watches and today are the official supplier to world aviation. All mechanical chronograph parts are crafted in Breitling's own workshops and Breitling remains one of the last independent family-run Swiss watchmakers.This Breitling Transocean Day & Date Men's Watch complete with shining steel bracelet is a true object of desire. With its slim bezel slender lugs and its clean silver-toned case housing a chronometer-certified self-winding movement this vintage-inspired timepiece reflects the spirit of the golden age of travel. The silver dial provides an eye-catching display of the date at 3 o'clock and displays the day through an arc-shaped aperture at 12 o'clock. This model is accented with applied hour-markers and a discreet cross-shaped dial feature which provides a subtle nod to the original Transocean model - an acknowledged classic in Swiss watchmaking launched in 1958 and which accompanied the boom in intercontinental air travel.
