There is perhaps no more versatile complication than the chronograph.
From race cars to rocket ships, boats to battlefields, you are likely to find a chronograph being employed to measure a plethora of tasks and times. From the Greek khrónos (“time)and gráphō (“to write”), a chronograph is a watch that has the ability to record time, generally via the addition of small sub-counters that register minutes and hours. When we think of one, we typically picture something mechanical with pushers on the side of the case. But that’s not what defines a chronograph.
Breitling launched the Aerospace in 1985 with an innovative design: In addition to typical analog timekeeping, it also featured two LED readouts for the chronograph function above 6 o’clock and below 12 o’clock, making it one of the first “ani-digi” watches. A titanium construction further contributed to its futuristic demeanor, giving it a space-age aesthetic that helps it stand out from the crowd some 40 years later.
This particular Aerospace, the E5062/C236, features a 40mm titanium case with a matching titanium bracelet and clasp. Its handsome grey-blue dial has a lumed inner 24-hour scale, Arabic numerals, twin LED readouts, an outer, rotating timing bezel with count-up scale, and a reliable quartz movement, the B65. Additionally, it comes with its inner and outer boxes, extra links, books, hangtag, and punched warranty certificate dating to 1996. Unique to this ref. E5062 is a chiming minute repeater function, reminiscent of those of mechanical minute repeaters.
If you’re looking for a chronograph, there’s simply none more compelling than the Aerospace!
