Why We Love it

There is perhaps no more versatile complication than the chronograph. 

From race cars to rocket ships, boats to battlefields, you are likely to find a chronograph being employed to measure a plethora of tasks and times. From the Greek khrónos (“time) and gráphō (“to write”), a chronograph is a watch that has the ability to record time, generally via the addition of small sub-counters that register minutes and hours. When we think of one, we typically picture something mechanical with pushers on the side of the case. But that’s not what defines a chronograph.

Breitling launched the Aerospace in 1985 with an innovative design: In addition to typical analog timekeeping, it also featured two LED readouts for the chronograph function above 6 o’clock and below 12 o’clock, making it one of the first “ani-digi” watches. A titanium construction further contributed to its futuristic demeanor, giving it a space-age aesthetic that helps it stand out from the crowd some 40 years later. 

This particular Aerospace, the E5062/C236, features a 40mm titanium case with a matching titanium bracelet and clasp. Its handsome grey-blue dial has a lumed inner 24-hour scale, Arabic numerals, twin LED readouts, an outer, rotating timing bezel with count-up scale, and a reliable quartz movement, the B65. Additionally, it comes with its inner and outer boxes, extra links, books, hangtag, and punched warranty certificate dating to 1996. Unique to this ref. E5062 is a chiming minute repeater function, reminiscent of those of mechanical minute repeaters. 

If you’re looking for a chronograph, there’s simply none more compelling than the Aerospace!

Overall Condition

The case is in good condition overall showing signs of normal wear consistent with age and use. Luminous navy blue dial is in excellent condition with matching handset. Signed crown.

Brand Story

+
Breitling, one of the most illustrious names in the annals of the “tool watch,” was founded by Léon Breitling in 1892. And though the firm is no longer operated by its namesake family, it still produces some of the world’s best pilot’s watches, many of which now feature in-house movements.

The company first started manufacturing wrist chronographs as early as the 1930s. In 1936 they became an official supplier to military forces of the United Kingdom and Canada. While perhaps best known for the Navitimer and Chronomat lines — which were used heavily by pilots of many nations — Breitling also produced scores of other chronograph models that merit consideration, such as the more affordable Top Time and Premier. Dive watches, such as the Super Ocean, are also part of the company’s offerings.

The late 1970s was a turbulent time for the Swiss watch industry, and many storied houses were swept away by the Quartz Crisis. By 1978, Breitling was in trouble due to the illness of its leader, Willy Breitling, and the steep decline in sales that had cut through the entire industry. Unable to keep operations going, the company was liquidated, and parts, toolings and naming rights were sold off.
Between 1979 and 2017, Breitling continued under the ownership of the Schneider family. In 2017 an 80% stake in the firm was sold to a British private equity firm, with the remaining 20% sold in 2018. In 2019, the company released the caliber B01, an in-house, automatic chronograph movement that’s since found its way into the Chronomat and Navitimer collections, bringing the tale of this famed manufacturer full circle.
