Bre­itling Su­pe­r­o­cean Héritage Chronoworks

The Bre­itling Chronoworks lab is anal­o­gous to a pro­fes­sional team of en­gine ex­perts in au­to­mo­tive rac­ing, de­vel­op­ing and test­ing cut­ting- edge tech­nolo­gies to el­e­vate the per­for­mance of its cal­i­bres. For its de­but show­ing, the think tank turned its at­ten­tion to the brand’s star move­ment, the Cal­i­bre 01, op­ti­mis­ing it with five new ef­fi­ciency- en­hanc­ing in­no­va­tions. These in­clude a ce­ramic move­ment chas­sis ( base­plate and bridges), sil­i­con es­cape­ment and wheels, a vari­able- in­er­tia bal­ance, and elas­tic tooth­ing in the ver­ti­cal- clutch chrono­graph mech­a­nism ( by means of a nickel- phos­pho­rous struc­ture), all to jointly re­duce fric­tion and en­ergy loss for a break­through in­crease in power re­serve from 70 to 100 hours. The re­worked en­gine sits within the stel­lar Su­pe­r­o­cean Héritage, in­ter­preted in all black matt ce­ramic with con­trast white mark­ers and a trans­par­ent case back that re­veals the un­der­ly­ing tech­nolo­gies driven by a black os­cil­lat­ing weight.
