Review Summary:

The Breitling Women's C7134012-B952TT Starliner Black Dial Watch is a two toned stainless steel timepiece. The category of this timepiece is “luxury”. The price tag on this piece is $5,500 to $7,500. This article will discuss the Pros and cons of the same.

The Positive

This timepiece belongs to the aviation line-up. When it comes to aviation inspired timepieces, Breitling stands as one of the top brands. The Starliner is made up of analogue watches with a single complication; specifically the date function.

  • Swiss Quartz

The movement is a calibre 71 Swiss quartz movement. The same is built for precision and durability. Also, the movement is a beauty to behold. All you have to do is remove the stainless steel case back.

  • Stainless Steel with 18k Gold

The case is solid stainless steel. The band is mostly stainless steel, and partly 18k gold. The construction is solid. But then again, you will not expect anything less from Breitling. The polish is satin. Gold highlights include the inner links, dial highlights, bezel, crown, and hands.

  • Sapphire Crystal

The watch window is made of sapphire crystal. No luxury watch is complete without the same. This provides it with maximum durability and minimizes window scratches, chips and blemishes. Sapphire crystal can be scratched and chipped. But you would need to use harder substances and the force exerted must be substantial.

Sapphire crystal is also non-reflective. This means there is no glare when you are outdoors. And you have maximum visibility at any angle.

  • Black Dial

The black is contrasted with gold. This provides maximum visibility. To add to the same, the hands are made of 18k gold with luminous strips placed at the center.

  • Screw Down Crown

Like every timepiece under the Starliner line up; this watch also has a screw down crown. This provides the best seal possible. Even if the rubber seal gaskets break, if the screw has been properly locked there is still a certain degree of water proofing. Also, blunt trauma to the crown will not reach the stem.

The Negative

There are a few points that some consumers and owners find lacking. It bears stressing that there is nothing wrong with the movement or the integrity of the watch. These are more of lacking features and design preferences. This includes:

  • A day and date function is more convenient
  • The link between the bracelet and the lugs are awkward. Most prefer lugs that extend only at both ends; not inward and in the middle.
  • As mentioned earlier, Breitling has beautiful movements. A sapphire crystal back would have been convenient so one can see the movement even without removing the case back.

Other Specs

Below are a few more specifications that were not discussed above:

  • 30 millimetres diameter
  • 12.2 millimetres thick
  • Deployment clasp
  • 16 millimetres band
  • Uni directional bezel
  • Water proof up to 100 meters or 330 feet

In Closing

A luxury watch from brand that has an impeccable pedigree is not a consumer good. It is an investment piece. Breitling has been making Swiss made watches since 1884. The name is synonymous to luxury aviation timepieces. The watch has impeccable craftsmanship. Lastly, the same is durable and timeless enough to be passed onto the next generation.
