Breitling news: NEW Raven Edition

Breitling has launched a very special collection: the redesign of the Airwold and the Skyracer Chronographs, two instruments easy to identify as they feature a rubber-molded push pieces and bezel.

The “Raven” timepieces, its coded name, feature a resolutely high-tech black and steel look. Both models, the electronic and the mechanical one, boast peerless functionality. The Airwolf features an exclusive SuperQuartz™ movement giving to this ultra-accurate instrument the full range of functions required by professional pilots: 1/100th of a second chronograph, alarm, countdown, 2nd timezone, UTC. It also has an NVG-compatible display backlighting system that enables night-time read-off, while a turbine-shaped construction on the caseback serves as a resonance chamber for the alarm and other audible indications.

On the other hand, the Skyracer was designed to be the most efficient self-winding chronograph in its category. Breitling has equipped the Skyracer with a Caliber 27, an exclusive mechanism that enables dual visualization of measured times. The 60-minute counter, with a central hand, guarantees peerless readability of any measurement under one hour. For longer durations, a single two-hand counter shows both, the hours and also the minutes. The rack-and-pinion mounted slide rule underscores the aviation-oriented vocation of both the Airwolf Raven and Skyracer Raven models.
