Aviators, Motor racers - divers? No, not them (yet) but now also sailors; Breitling’s high-tech, intelligent chronograph, the Exospace B55 has equipped them all.

For 2018 the Exospace B55 gets a new look plus relevant functionality fit for the world of yachting.

Featuring a Breitling Manufacture Caliber B55, the multifunction, smartphone-connected Exospace B55 Yachting with its strong, lightweight Titanium case, presented on a sporty blue rubber strap has been reinvented for yachting professionals and regatta competitors.

It is equipped Breitling’s thermos-compensated quartz electronic movement which powers a chronograph with analog as well as 12- and 24-hour digital displays, all clearly visible through a Sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides.

The chronograph has a clever countdown system, featuring audio, visual, and vibrating alarms and indications. If a race judge stops a countdown, it is easy to re-sync the watch to the new countdown when it resumes.

The watch stores split times, which can be read instantaneously on the watch’s digital screen or, when the Exospace is synchronized to a smartphone, on the phone’s display. Furthermore it should provide hours of enjoyment soaking in the bath alongside your rubber ducky!

Thoughts? This is seriously cool – are Breitling one step away from making a dive computer? Who’d like to see that? ;)
