Geneva International Watch Day 2020: the new Breitling Endurance Pro
As a watch enthusiast, you only need to know certain brands. If you think you are someone who knows watches, then these names are no exception. The name Breitling has become synonymous with pilot watches, thanks to the long tool watch tradition of Swiss watchmakers. However, time has changed, and the Voyager is not the only jewel in Breitling’s crown. I’m talking about Breitling’s “professional” timepieces. Since the launch of the first flight Aerospace in 1985, the professional collection of watchmakers has achieved amazing growth.
Meet New Breitling Pro
From the narrow, rugged aerospace to the more feature-rich Chronospace, and of course the most advanced Exospace, the Professional series has been truly developed. Oh, don’t expect Emergency II, this watch can literally call out a strange helicopter just in case you head south. It is obvious that Breitling fake chose it for the new Endurance Pro due to its technical sophistication and durability.
The idea behind the new Breitling Endurance Pro is very clear. For many years, luxury sports watches have been limited to rigid stainless steel casings and mechanical movements. Think about it, this might increase the face value of the clock, but it doesn’t do much for its purpose. This is the driving force behind Breitling’s sports watch, which is made of something much lighter than stainless steel and powered by something stronger than a mechanical movement.
For those who don’t know, Endurance Pro is basically the successor to the Sprint timepiece launched in 1967. The uniqueness of this watch is that it provides a “pulse meter”, which allows users to check their heart rate. Yes, Apple, you are not the first to do this. This feature can be found in the new Endurance Pro.
The second thing that catches the eye is that the watch uses unconventional materials. This watch witnessed the use of the “Breitlight” material introduced in 2016. The material is 5.8 times lighter than stainless steel and 3.3 times lighter than titanium. If you ask me, it is really impressive. Because it is suitable for the sports characteristics of the watch, it is an ideal choice.
The height of this nice watches is 44 mm, which is pretty good considering the modern size. The case is made of Breitlight, which is a material specially designed for this type of watch. As mentioned above, Breitling claims that it is lighter than stainless steel and titanium. The dial is black with five different colors. The applied Arabic numeral hour markers and Super LumiNova help to improve the readability of the device. The watch also has a water resistance of 100 meters and offers options between rubber and nylon straps.
As far as the movement is concerned, the watch is powered by the Breitling Caliber 82 movement, which is a high-precision, thermally compensated and robust Swiss SuperQuartz movement. The movement has a height of 30 mm and provides hours, minutes, seconds, date and last but not least a chronograph. Like all Breitling quartz movements, this movement has also received COSC certification.
For many people, this is bound to be the best luxury sports watch out there. Although it exudes the stench of classic Breitling, it may surprise many people because it combines the advantages of modern aesthetics.
To be honest, the market segment that Breitling is trying to invade has been dominated by watches such as Luminox and various versions of G-Shocks. Despite this, not everyone is looking for a watch that can play. Some people just want something that can handle good old whipping sessions, in which case it takes about 500 minutes of vigorous activity.
Breitling (Breitling copy) launched this watch, and called it “Breitling (Breitling) Endurance Pro Strava Challenge”. The plan encourages users of that particular watch to sweat for 500 minutes. It can be cycling, running, sprinting or swimming. Basically, anything that keeps you active and forces you to improve your heart rhythm. Participants who complete the challenge will be drawn. Rumor has it that the first prize is a Breitling-Colnago brand bicycle.
To be sure, this watch will be a huge success, especially considering that its price will be lower than many mainstream luxury sports watches on the market.
