Once a wise man said that those who ignore history are destined to repeat the same mistakes. In the past few years, we have seen a surge in the popularity of Smartwatch, mainly from Apple. This led to the omen of the doom of mechanical clocks, which sounded familiar to anyone in the 1970s, when the quartz crisis was the worst.Breitling Exospace Cockpit B55 Connected Prototype VB5510H2|BE45|235S|V20DSA.2h

At that time, most luxury houses in Switzerland simply regarded the new technology as a fashion and continued to do so, even if the recipient moved in, boarded the window, and sold the machine to the highest bidder. Those who decide to join this new world of crystals and electronics are generally better off, although they are usually a bit unpleasant.

Fast forward to modern times, it seems that traditional luxury watch makers will remember the lessons of the time and invest more and more assets to adopt Smartwatch technology. More importantly, some people perfect the products of companies such as Samsung, Huawei, and Apple by investing in their watches with what may be their most important asset-a sense of luxury. Today, we take a look at Breitling's smart watch series.

Breitling's fate has been unstable in the past few decades, but since it was acquired by CVC Capital Partners, Europe's largest private equity firm in 2017, Breitling's strength has continued to increase. With Georges Kern as CEO, manufacturing has been transformed.

However, although Kern announced the return of a simpler, retro-inspired aesthetic, they are still one of the most pioneering organizations in the field of wearable technology. The B55 prototype actually made its debut at the 2015 Basel International Watch and Jewellery Show, and a production model was released to the public later that year. This is the brainchild of Jean-Paul Girardin, who managed to find time between his duties as the vice president of Breitling and become a professional helicopter pilot.Richard Mille RM 50-02 ACJ Tourbillon Split Seconds

As a brand that may be more important than any other aviation industry compared to the aviation industry, this watch is specially set up as a part of the professional series, which is a must-have equipment for the world's flying elites. Exospace is side by side with Breitling's other game changers, and its built-in location beacon keeps pace with this game changer. But even though the two share digital and analog readings (the same as the rest of the "professional instrument" series), Exospace itself is very useful.

The Exospace B55 has a very stylish appearance (using the masculinity commonly used by Breitling), and its feature list marks it as a very innovative product for military pilots, not just for fans of military watches. This dial closely mimics the 2014 Cockpit B50, but makes the dial more readable by using a contrasting blue mobile phone and digital numbers. The high-intensity LCD backlight can be manually operated by pressing the crown, or, like the latest iPhone, can be activated by the built-in inclinometer. When the watch is tilted 35 degrees (that is, the angle at which you turn your wrist to check the time), the backlight will activate to provide maximum readability, and turn off again to eliminate interference when not in use.

The digital display itself is compatible with night vision goggles, which can prevent excessive lighting in the dark, while wearing NVGs may endanger the pilot's vision. It has an advanced flight timer that can not only track take-off, air and landing time, but also can be called "blocking time" in the helicopter world. Stall time refers to the period of time from the beginning of the rotor movement to the final stop. This is essential to solve the overall wear and tear of the machine, but it is easy to be forgotten when the pressure in the cockpit (especially military aircraft) increases.high quality replica watches

In addition, there are two time zone functions, one is digital display and the other is pointer display, which can be interchanged by pressing a button. Including various countdowns and countdowns, perpetual calendar, chronograph with flyback function, electronic speedometer and up to seven daily alarms. All in all, the Exospace B55 watch is very large, wrapped in a 46mm x 15mm titanium package.

Interestingly, Breitling avoided using the term "Smartwatch" in Exospace, instead choosing to describe it as "Connected." For those who want to know the difference between the two, Smartwatch means that the timepiece is an extension of your phone, while Connected uses your phone app as an extension of the watch. This means that the B55 app (available on both Android and IOS) can be used to activate many functions more quickly and easily than the watch itself.

The synchronization between the two is handled by BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy), in addition to taking care of data transmission and all remote settings, it also provides perfect accuracy for the watch. The timing function of your phone is controlled by satellite via atomic time signals, even when linked to Exospace B55.replica U-BOAT Watches

Due to the connection established, the Exospace B55 is able to receive notifications, which are displayed on the dual digital readout on the dial. A very sophisticated function allows you to stop the main hands at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock to keep them away from the screen, and double-click the crown to restore them to normal. If you don't want to connect to your phone for some reason, you can control all functions by manipulating the crown and two buttons.

Part of the reason for Breitling's recovery in the market is their pursuit of complete self-sufficiency, and Exospace B55 is no exception. Both the watch and the movement are made entirely in-house, and the phone application is a program customized for Swiss brands.

The movement (thermally compensated caliber B55) has joined Breitling's SuperQuartz movement series. According to reports, its accuracy is even 10 times that of a standard quartz movement, exceeding the COSC requirement of +/- 0.07 seconds per day.replica Jacob & Co Epic X Chrono Luis Figo EC311.21.SD.BF.A

Equally impressive (especially for iPhone owners like me), the battery life of the Exospace B55. The customized lithium-ion battery is charged through a beautiful magnetic connector on the left side of the case, and it is reported that a single charge can provide up to two months of power. In contrast, I just called for 10 minutes and now I am desperately looking for a charger!

On the wrist, although this is certainly not a watch, it is actually a bit like a monster, but surprisingly comfortable. The combination of its short curved lugs and a titanium case is both lightweight and fits well on the wrist. Thanks to the buckle of the familiar Breitling rider, the movement of the unidirectional bezel is easy, and the heavy knurling on the crown also makes it easy to turn, even when wearing gloves.

There is also the B55 Exospace Yachting, which has a regatta timer on top of all other items, and has a little color on its chapter ring and carbon fiber dial. It adds a nice unique element to the pure black of the rest of the series. All in all, Breitling's first attempt to get involved in connected timepieces must have begun. Outstanding achievements should have a place on the wrist of any demanding pilot.Replica Bell & Ross watches
