Breitling R1636212.B882 description
While presented in a slightly smaller size, the Flying B N°3 features all the harmonious elegance and daring of the rectangular Flying B case. However, it shows an entirely different face thanks to its magnificent entirely redesigned dial. This incredibly refined setting is highlighted by a finely bevelled sapphire crystal that is glareproofed on both sides. The outside of the dial comes in a choice of colours inspired by the most gorgeous Bentley liveries. The hour-markers and the Roman numeral XII with their mother-of-pearl inlays provide a radiant surround for the knurled central motif matching the steel, red gold or white gold of the case. The two large hands mark off the hours and minutes with considerable panache. The small seconds hand sweeps around a hollowed square subdial, while the date is clearly visible in a finely cut-out large calendar display. At the heart of this paragon of equilibrium and refinement beats the Breitling Calibre 16B, accompanied by an official COSC chronometer-rating certificate. The Flying B N°3 is available in steel as well as in red or white gold. The Speed B bracelet is distinguished by its links with a curving profile mirroring the shape of the case; it is equipped with a comfort-enhancing extension that is adjustable in a few seconds.
