Popular Breitling Cockpit Models
One of the most popular models within the Breitling Cockpit collection is the date model. Characterized by large double date windows at 3’clock, other design elements of the Breitling Cockpit is the rotating bezel with rider tabs, as well as the dome-shaped crown. On some versions, the dial bears one Roman numeral XII at 12 o’clock along with stick indexes while on other versions the Roman numerals VI, IX, and XII can be found at 6, 9, and 12 o’clock. The Breitling Cockpit watches are powered by the Breitling Caliber 49 automatic mechanical movement with 42 hours of power reserve.
The Cockpit series also included the Breitling Chrono Cockpit models. Likewise equipped with the distinct bezel with rider tabs, the Chrono Cockpit had a different dial configuration. The trio of chronograph registers sit at the 6, 9, and 12 o’clock positions while at 3 o’clock is a single date aperture. The Breitling Chrono Cockpit watches are equipped with the famed Breitling Caliber 13 automatic chronograph movement with 42 hours of power reserve.
