Breitling should stick to pilot watches if this is what they are going to release. This is the Chronomat Airborne. This watch uses the newer in-house (yes, not an ETA) movement. The Breitling Calibre 01 (B01). The movement is large and therefore the date is near the edge of the dial, a feature often overlooked but I personally appreciat it because a date wheel close to the center looks bad. The case is 44mm or 41mm in diameter (available in both sizes) and is also water resistant to 300m, making it a mix of a dive watch and pilot watch. Which one?, the case back provides the answer in my opinion. However, they modeled this watch off of an older watch, the Frecce Tricolori chronograph, which was originally a watch made for pilots. The real special thing about this watch, however, is that it acknowledges the 30th anniversary of Breitling's flagship collection, the Chronomat. More pictures of the watches can be found below. So many new watches to write about...
