Why We Love it

Unlike Breitling's best known chronograph - the navigational instrument focused Navitimer - the Transocean line has a decidedly more passenger flavor than pilot!

Not that this is in any way a slag against the Transocean - these watches carry a more sophisticated, relaxed and luxurious feel than their cluttered-dial Navitimer cousins. Think more yachting vacations than re-certification flights.

With a 46mm stainless steel case and matching mesh bracelet, the Reference AB0510 Transocean Chronograph Unitime is surprisingly well balanced and proportioned for its size. Featuring a luminous black dial with matching handset,  a smooth steel bezel, chronograph complication and a lovely globe decoration with world time indications, this is a sporty, classy, and substantial bit of kit for the world traveler.

With water resistance suitable for daily-wear and beyond, this nearly-new watch packs a a big punch in both the function and the looks department.

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.
