BREITLING NEW GALACTIC 36 SLEEKT
Breitling presents to women a new model from its Galactic line featuring a slimmer case, tungsten carbide bezel and a chronometer-certified SuperQuartzTM movement.
The ultra-sporty, elegant and sophisticated Galactic holds a place of its own within the Breitling universe. This new quartz version of the Galactic 36 mm model is distinguished by a revamped design. The slimmer case features an extremely ergonomic profile. It is topped by a brand-new smooth bezel in tungsten carbide, an ultra-resistant high-tech composite material whose original shade creates a subtle contrast with polished steel. Tungsten carbide is made from a tungsten powder molded at high temperature and under extreme pressure. This results in incomparable hardness almost five times greater than that of steel, as well as a scratch-proof surface.
The dials come in black-lacquered or mother-of-pearl, with or without diamond hour-markers. The steel bracelet comprising five rows of links boasts a sturdy and comfortable construction. This model is also available with a diamond-set steel bezel.
In addition, the Galactic 36 SleekT retains the sporting qualities that have forged the collection’s success, including water resistance to 100 m (330 ft), a shock-resistant case, a sapphire crystal glare proofed on both sides and an extremely legible dial with luminescent hands and large hour-markers. The officially chronometer-certified SuperQuartzTM movement displays a level of precision ten times higher than standard quartz.
This watch is priced from RM12,900 (take into consideration fluctuations in exchange rate) on a steel Pilot bracelet.
