For more than 130 years, Breitling has firmly established its leading position as a precision chronograph expert with its accurate, reliable and outstanding performance on the wrist watch of professionals. It is also because of its expertise in this field that Breitling was able to create precision watches like the Galactic series that perfectly embody the outstanding performance. This extremely dynamic and versatile wrist timepiece is suitable for those who do not need the chronograph function, but still demand the ruggedness, precision and reliability of the watch.
After successively launching 41mm models equipped with automatic winding mechanical movements, and 36mm and 32mm models specially designed for women, the Galaxy series now welcomes a new member of a larger size.
The new Breitling Galactic 44 watch has an atmospheric diameter of 44 mm, and its resolute and magnificent technical appearance shines on the wrist. The satin-brushed unidirectional rotating bezel is beautifully engraved with unique black rubber hour markers. The dial provides a very unique way of displaying time, and the display windows at 12 o’clock and 3 o’clock show the date and day, respectively. In addition, the bezel’s inner ring is carefully pressed with a 1/100 hour scale and a compass indicator bearing scale. The large three-dimensional hour markers and oversized hands are coated with a luminous coating, coupled with a thick double-sided anti-glare sapphire crystal, ensuring the best readability and clarity. The stainless steel case with screw-in safety chronograph button is water-resistant to 200 meters (660 feet), equipped with a high-performance self-winding mechanical movement, and has the Swiss Official Observatory Certification (COSC), which represents the highest benchmark for accuracy and reliability.
The watch is available in black, blue and silver dials, with a choice of stainless steel bracelet, calfskin or crocodile strap, rubber strap or military strap. Breitling Galaxy 44 watch: extraordinary dynamic, outstanding example.
