From ‘A’ list celebrity pilot John Travolta to legendary international sports and style icon David Beckham, Breitling really hits the mark when it comes to representing their products. This time using English soccer legend David Beckham with Breitling Transocean Chronograph Unitime worldtimer watch.
This Englishman is an intriguing individual who seems to be equal to more than the sum of his parts, notably as ‘Brand Beckham’. Not only does he seem to be maturing more gracefully than most, it also has to be said, he carries his many hair styles, face fashions, and neck tattoos without coming across as a middle-aged man in crisis. Indeed, it’s his bad boy image and mystical business acumen that makes him a perfect match for Breitling, to place their Transocean Chronograph Unitime worldtimer in his capable hands. Introduced back in 2012, this is a fine example of the long-term partnership between the Swiss brand and the famous athlete.
What The Man Says
“I’ve always been a long-time admirer of Breitling. As a company, they create not only the highest-performance watches but also timeless designs that have inspired generations. It was a natural choice for me to partner with this fantastic brand.”
Breitling Transocean Chronograph
The Transocean Chronograph Unitime is equipped with the Breitling Caliber B05 self-winding movement with double disk enabling permanent readings of the time in all 24 time zones, as well as a crown-operated correction system. The distinctive case has elegantly tapered lugs, and striking black subdial seems to be a nod to the classic look of the 1950s and ‘60s chronographs.

A Vintage Look
This is very much a travelers timepiece with 24 time zones available, in the center of the dial an image of the globe that stands out particularly well against the black dial. It has to be said the overall look is suggestive of design from days gone by, a modern flavor representing a vintage or golden age of travel that embracing a proud brand heritage of the early years of trans-oceanic flight.
Don’t be fooled by the look because the B05 caliber is a modern movement and the first to be completely developed, designed and manufactured in the Breitling’s workshops. Bottom line: This is a handsome timepiece.
