These are the new Raven models from Breitling, the Skyracer (above) and the Airwolf (below). The Airwolf is powered by an exclusive SuperQuartz™ movement. This movement functions with extreme accuracy and can measure 1/100th of a second chronograph times. It also features a 2nd timezone, alarm, countdown timer and UTC. A NVG-compatible display backlighting system enables night time reading. A turbine-shaped caseback functions as a resonance chamber for the alarm and other audible indications.

The Skyracer is powered by a mechanical self-winding chronograph movement, Caliber 27. This watch movement is capable of displaying dual measured times. The 60-minute counter (on the right) can display times under one hour. For times longer than one hour, a single two-hand counter (on the left) shows both hours and minutes. The elapsed time can easily be read off this subdial, just like you normally read the time. Very cool.
