Duty Free Watches in St Lucia – New Breitling Models Preview at Baselworld
Looking for new duty free watches in St Lucia? Have we got some exciting news for you! We were fortunate enough to attend the recent Baselworld show and we are very excited to share some of the new Breitling models that were on show, and that will soon be available at Harry Edwards Jewelers stores across St. Lucia.
Avenger Hurricane Military
With its black avant-garde case, its dial with aeronautical-type numerals and its exclusive 24-hour display, the new Avenger Hurricane Military limited series proudly displays the assets of an instrument for which prowess is the norm.
On this new version of this superlative-charged chronograph, issued in a 1,000-piece limited edition, Breitling has equipped the black dial with luminescent hands and numerals evoking the instruments produced during the brand’s longstanding heritage in the aeronautical and military field.
The 50 mm case is made of Breitlight – an exclusive high-tech material 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel, yet significantly harder, offering exceptional resistance to scratching, traction and corrosion, thermal stability, along with antimagnetic and anti-allergenic properties).
The Avenger Hurricane Military is powered by Manufacture Breitling Caliber B12, a selfwinding chronograph movement displaying the time in an entirely original 24-hour mode, as typically used in the military and among pilots, and chronometer-certified by the COSC, a sure token of superior precision.
The exclusive strap also combines comfort and sturdiness, with a black rubber lining and sides, as well as an exterior in khaki-colored high-resistance Military textile fiber featuring tone-on-tone stitching.
Those looking for duty free watches in St Lucia that make a powerful statement need look no further than the Avenger Hurricane Military.
The Colt by Breitling expresses its youthful, dynamic and winning spirit in a brand-new model dedicated to thrill-seekers, with an avant-garde case in Breitlight and an ultra-technical black look.
High-performance, efficient, ultra-reliable: the Colt has retained from its military background all the qualities of an authentic instrument for professionals. Breitling is propelling it towards fresh heights by launching a state-of-the-art model combining reliable technical assets with an original design and an extremely reasonable price. Exactly what it takes to make the Colt a new all-comers champion.
A champion of precision, with a thermocompensated SuperQuartzTM movement, ten times more accurate than standard quartz and chronometer-certified by the COSC.
A champion of legibility, with white luminescent hands and indications standing out against the black background, red accents reminiscent of instrument panels and a sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides.
A champion of shock-resistance, with substantial reinforcements surrounding the screwlocked, rubber-molded crown, and a protruding bezel gasket perfectly protecting the crystal.
Equipped with a rotating rider tab bezel serving to memorize times and a dial with an additional 24-hour (military) scale, the Colt Skyracer is also distinguished by its exclusive black rubber strap bearing various measurement scales that are useful to adventurers of all kinds: 1:25,000 and 1:50,000 scales on the 12 o’clock strap section, centimeters and inches on the 6 o’clock section. An ingenious removable
fastening system enables the wearer to quickly and easily remove the section of their choice and use it as a measuring instrument, before refitting it just as smoothly.
Those looking for affordable, yet groundbreaking, duty free watches in St Lucia will be wowed by the Colt Skyracer.
Breitling reaffirms its supreme mastery of chronographs by unveiling its own split-seconds chronograph movement – one of the most sophisticated horological complications. Developed in the spirit of instruments for professionals, this Manufacture Breitling Caliber B03 is distinguished by its innovative construction ensuring maximum precision, sturdiness and reliability.
With its two superimposed central chronograph hands, of which one can be stopped so as to measure an intermediate (split) time, before “catching up” (rattraper in French) with the first one still sweeping onwards, the split-seconds chronograph is considered one of the hardest watchmaking mechanisms to create. Like all Breitling movements, the Manufacture Breitling Caliber B03 is chronometer-certified by the COSC, the only precision and reliability benchmark based on an international norm.
To highlight its exceptional new ‘engine’, Breitling has chosen its famous Navitimer, the doyenne of all mechanical chronographs produced worldwide (since 1952). Equipped with a 45 mm case, the Navitimer Rattrapante comes in steel as well as a 250-piece red gold limited edition (equipped with a transparent caseback). Both watches are distinguished by their exclusive bronze-colored dial, serving as a backdrop for the silver-toned counters and inner bezel reflecting the classic Navitimer look.
In an extremely refined detail, the B logo with its anchor symbol generally adorning the base of the Navitimer chronograph hands is in this instance divided between the two seconds hands: with the B on the red chronograph hand and the anchor on the split-seconds hand. This means the two elements are separated when the split-seconds hand is stopped, before reforming the brand signature when the hands are again overlaid. The split-seconds pusher, housed in the 3 o’clock crown, serves to stop and restart the split-seconds hand as often as desired during a timing operation – in order to measure split times or to compare the results of several competitors.
There are many options for duty free watches in St Lucia, but only one Navitimer. The Rattrapante is the ultimate mechanical chronograph in a legendary watch.
Superocean Heritage II
Breitling has redesigned its Superocean Héritage line, dedicated to modern-day explorers. The result is a new face as original, pure and dynamic as ever, for this highly successful collection that celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2017.
First launched in 1957, the Superocean professional diving watch – rapidly adopted by the first enthusiasts of leisure diving – has since spawned several generations of instruments boasting peerless aquatic performance. Yet Breitling has also preserved the spirit of the original model in a line named Superocean Héritage that has become one of the brand’s stellar collections, thanks to its unique and timeless look combined with cutting-edge technology.
To mark the 60th anniversary of this pioneer of wide-open spaces, Breitling had reinvigorated its iconic design while maintaining its unique character. The main development took the form of a new steel bezel with an ultra-hard high-tech ceramic ring that is scratchproof and extremely shock-resistant. The elimination of the metal ring surrounding the minute circle means the bezel appears to form a seamless whole with the dial in a matching color, adorned with the original Superocean logo. The unusual shape of the hands (triangular for the hours and lozenge-like for the minutes), along with the slightly cone-shaped hour-markers, reinforces ties with the 1957 model, while ensuring optimal legibility enhanced by luminescent markers.
The Superocean Héritage II is interpreted in two watch sizes (42 and 46 mm) and as a 46 mm chronograph, all available in three colors: black, blue and bronze. The latter versions are available with an exclusive brand-new rubber-leather strap in the same color and enhanced by contrasting stitching. In addition to the leather, crocodile or rubber straps, all the models may be fitted with a steel mesh bracelet echoing the legendary 1957 version.
In terms of performance, the Superocean Héritage II has all the technical qualities that have made it the perfect companion for the finest adventures on land, at sea and in the air. The Superocean Héritage II Chronographe 46 houses a selfwinding chronograph movement chronometer-certified by the COSC. The Manufacture Caliber B20 powering the Superocean Héritage II 42 and 46 models, also COSC-certified, is a high-precision, reliably robust selfwinding movement endowed with a 70-hour power reserve. The sturdy steel case with its screw-locked crown is water-resistant to 200 m (660 ft).
The fluted unidirectional rotating bezel, bearing a luminescent dot at 12 o’clock, is fitted with a 120-tooth system enabling extremely accurate adjustment and very smooth rotation – whether it comes to checking a dive time or marking off various time measurements, notably in aviation.
The Caribbean is a haven for divers and sailors alike, and those looking for duty free watches in St Lucia to support their love for the open water will love the Superocean Héritage II.
