The IRONMAN® competition is, of course, one of the most uncompromising and toughest events out there so it stands to reason that they’ve joined forces with a watchmaker of equal repute in the shape of Breitling. The Breitling x IRONMAN® Watch is the new official Luxury Watch of IRONMAN® and sees Breitling celebrate the power and stamina which fuels these phenomenal sporting events with a new series of striking, robust and stylish timepieces.
Breitling have delivered a set of perfectly lightweight and lighthearted luxury sports timepieces which effortlessly combine high precision, innovative technology, and vibrant, colourful design aesthetics. The launch boasts two exciting new watches with prices starting at $3350: namely, a red version available globally at all Breitling boutiques and retailers and a black and gold piece exclusively available for IRONMAN® race finishers. Additional models reserved for the IRONMAN® community are planned in the coming months.
The new Endurance Pro IRONMAN® collection is just as suitable for athletes as it is for luxury clients looking for the ultimate athleisure accessory. Its 44 mm watch case is crafted from Breitlight®, which is 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel, but, crucially, it is significantly harder. This exclusive high-tech material delivers unbeatable resistance to scratches, traction, and corrosion.
The Breitling x IRONMAN® Watches stand out for their anti-magnetic and anti-allergic properties, along with their thermal stability, which ensure it has a warmer feel than metal. Each timepiece in the collection is powered by the Breitling Caliber 82, a COSC-certified thermocompensatedSuperQuartz™ movement that is ten times more accurate than regular quartz and offers a battery life of approximately three to four years.
The bidirectional rotating bezel on the Breitling x IRONMAN® Watches has engraved compass points, and the tactile moulded crown delivers fantastic grip and manoeuvrability. The hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova®, which ensures they are legible even in low lighting environments. Along with a small-second subdial, there are 1/10th second and 30-minute chronograph counters that have also been designed for easy reading. The watch is water-resistant to 10 bar/100 meters/330 feet. After a watch that celebrates some of the toughest men and women out there? This is the one for you.
