Breitling Annual Calendar Watch

2014 will see a number of additions to the Breitling watch collection that started last year with mega 57.5mm wide Pilot Montre d��A��ronef Type 20 that included a rather amazing recreation of a competition movement. Never intended as a serious collection, the popularity of the Montre d��A��ronef Type 20 likely spurred enough noise that Breitling CEO Jean-Frederic Dufour decided to expand on the range. This new Breitling Pilot model is the most appreciated Pilot Montre d��A��ronef Type 20 Annual Calendar, and includes the name Breitling El Primero caliber 4054 automatic movement produced in conjunction with maker designer Ludwig Oeschlin. This movement originally debuted in the Breitling Captain Winsor Replica Hublot Big Bang watch. From classy now to sporty, the chronograph with annual calendar in the El Primero 4054 finds itself a good home in the Pilot Montre d��A��ronef Type 20 Annual Calendar. The timepieces will sport 48mm wide cases in that beautiful old pilot Replica Hublot Big Bang King style based on an original vintage Breitling pilot watch and airplane instrument clock design. We were able to get a sneak peak at the new Pilot Montre d��A��ronef Type 20 watches for 2013 back in January and they look fantastic. While at almost 60mm wide the original was tough to stomach on the wrist for long periods of time. The new more reasonable sizes make sense and the design of the cases and dials is fantastic. This year Breitling will offer the Pilot Montre d��A��ronef Type 20 Annual Calendar in both steel and 18k rose gold. Legibility and comfort (assuming you like large watches) are the key elements of the Pilot Montre d��A��ronef Type 20 collection. The dial design is taken from the Breitling Type 20 cockpit clock dial, and is slathered with lume matched to perfectly sized hands on these watches. While we love the modern Breitling Stratos collection of sport watches, the Breitling range offers a very appealing retro aviation style sport watch as an alternative. Gotta love that giant onion-style crown as well. We will be back later with a hands-on look after meeting with Breitling at Basel. So are the new Breitling Annual Calendar Watches up your alley?
