Connected Watch Buzz: Breitling Launches Exospace B55 In SingaporeWritten by Alvin Wong
It’s a curious, new, teched-up world out there, and Breitling is geared up for it.
One of the few watch brands that is not averse to electronics and technology, Breitling introduced the Exospace B55, a ‘connected chronograph’ to Singapore watch buffs last week.
Held at the brand’s Palais Renaissance store, the party was, in true Breitling fashion, loud and riotous. Meantime, the titanium-clad, SuperQuartz-powered watch proved to be an instant hit.
Over 100 guests finally caught their first glimpse of the watch that was introduced in BaselWorld 2015. Equipped with state-of-the-art connectivity, the timepiece is able to ‘communicate’ with your smartphone for alerts, as well as setting and activation of myriad flight-ready timing functions including tachymeter, various chronograph features, take-off and landing times, and more.
Priced at S$11,950, watch now is available at Breitling’s boutique and authorised retailers.
Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
