Baselworld: Breitling Transocean Chronograph 1461
March 16, 2012
This is the Breitling Transocean Chronograph 1461 with a chronograph, hours, minutes and small seconds, and a pointer: day, date, month, and moonphase. You only need to make adjustments to the annual calendar once every four years to compensate for leap year.
The Transocean 1461 comes in a 43 mm, fully polished, stainless case and is powered by a self-winding mechanical movement that runs at 28,800 vph (4Hz), with 38 jewels and a 42-hour power reserve. The movement is not in-house like much of the vintage inspired Transocean line, instead, it utilizes the ETA 2892-A2 with a moonphase module.
Water-resistance is 50 meters. Convex sapphire crystal glare-proofed on both sides. Available in a black or silver dial with your choice of a Barenia leather or crocodile leather strap, an Ocean Classic steel mesh bracelet. The black dial with the steel mesh bracelet looks stunning. Retail price is $9,800.
