the times, Breitling today stands for aspirational yet accessible sports, such as running, cycling, and swimming, and has launched the new Endurance Pro, designed for men and women whose active lives blend a professional mindset with a sporty lifestyle.
The timepiece combines an ultra-light 44mm case made of Breitlight - a Breitling innovation that is 3.3 times lighter than titanium, 5.8 times lighter than stainless steel and highly resistant to scratches, traction, and corrosion - and a thermo-compensated SuperQuartz movement that is 10 times more accurate than conventional quartz. This is the same movement that powers every piece in Breitling’s Professional range, the tool watches that have long been favorites with explorers and pilots.
The Endurance Pro is inspired by the Breitling Sprint, a memorable watch from the 1970s that combined a pulsometer with an impressively light weight. It was ideal for athletes who wanted to be able to monitor their heart rates. Made of resin, it was particularly comfortable on the wrist. In addition, it was produced in some dazzling 1970s colours.
The Endurance Pro is clearly a modern evolution of that design. It boasts five colorful variations, each featuring a black dial and a black bi-directional bezel with engraved cardinal compass points. Distinguished by their own bold colours, the five variations are designed with an inner bezel, which is marked with a useful pulsometer scale, in a choice of white, blue, yellow, orange, or red, making it easy for the user to keep track of their heart rate during sports sessions.
The athleisure watch is presented on a Diver Pro rubber strap in the same colour as the inner bezel ring. For Endurance
Pro fans who want to add even more colour to this already dazzling watch, vibrant Outerknown ECONYL yarn NATO straps that pair perfectly with this eyecatching chronograph can be purchased separately. The watch also has a tactile molded crown in the same color as the strap and the inner bezel ring for excellent grip and maneuverability. At the heart of the Endurance Pro is the COSC-certified Breitling Caliber 82, whose SuperQuartz technology delivers exceptional precision.
The hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova, making them legible even in limited lighting conditions. The chronograph second hand has a red pointer so it is easy to keep track of the elapsed time. Along with a small-second subdial, there are 1/10th second and 30-minute chronograph counters that have also been designed for easy reading.
