First and foremost, this timepiece is made by Breitling. The same has been making Swiss made time pieces since 1884. Breitling is synonymous with the best aviation inspired timepieces in the world! Obviously the “Cockpit” line up is aviation inspired.
The movement is 100% Swiss quartz. The calibre is 49. This is a simple but elegant analogue watch with a single complication; the date function.
There are a total of 50 diamonds. Eight (8) can be found on the dial, as hour markers. Forty-two (42) are embedded on the bezel.
Key pieces are outfitted with 18k rose gold i.e. watch links, dial, crown, bezel, and hands. This provides a classic contrast that is more elegant than simple gold. The same is also rated to be more durable.
The case was pressed from a single piece of solid stainless steel. This ensures absolute durability. The same is then finished with a satin polish.
Sapphire Crystal Window
The window is covered with sapphire crystal. The same is known for two qualities. First, it’s scratch resistant. You can run its window first in rough concrete (the sapphire crystal only) and you will not see a single scratch. Second is its non-reflective surface. This minimizes glare, especially when you are outdoors.
Screw Down Crown
The 18k rose gold crown is a screw down type. This is the preferred crown locking mechanism. This is because it allows the watch to be resistant to water and pressure.
Lume strips can be found on the 18k rose gold watch hands. This increases visibility on low light or dark environments. The lume strip is top class. This allows it to provide maximum brightness and longest luminosity.
The price of the watch is not really a con. This is because the model is designated as luxury. Considering the number of diamonds used and the brand name; it is RELATIVELY inexpensive. That being said; below are the actual Cons:
- Most catalogues will tell you the number of diamonds that are set on the watch. Heck, you can even count it yourself. But the actual size of the same is not advertised.
- 41mm for a ladies watch is a bit much. This significantly limits the demographics of the same. On a positive note, this can be a unisex watch.
- Third, 18k rose gold is susceptible to scratches. This means you wear it with care. Of course 18k rose gold is more durable than 18k gold.
