Today's offering showcases this highly functional and well-designed Certified Pre-Owned Breitling Aerospace bi-metal titanium and gold watch wristwatch that was leased to the popular, award-winning Apple TV show "For All Mankind" in 2022 and worn by multiple characters throughout the series.
These Aerospace watches are feature rich to say the least - they have everything but the kitchen sink. Besides the analog hour and minutes functions, this watch possesses these digital functions:
- Local Time (hh:mm:ss) and analog without second hand
- Date + Seconds display
- Date + Date display
- Quick-setting hour for easy time-zone changing
- Alarm for Local Time, repeating if not canceled
- Chronograph - simple count up with stop/start, 100th seconds for first hour, seconds after that, up to 48h00m00s
- Count down timer with alarm, from 23h59m59s down to 1s, alarm with repeat if not canceled
- Second Time Zone (hh:mm:ss)
- Repetition Minutes - time chimed out if crown depressed when time is digitally displayed
Operating its functions is easy, as everything is done through the crown. This watch is one of the less common bi-metal versions made from titanium and gold.
It is in pleasing condition - about an 8.5 out of 10. The glareproofing film coating the sapphire crystal, nearly always full of hairlines after a bit of use, is wonderful mint. The back has fairly light remnants of wear throughout from the bracelet contacting it, and the small gold riders tabs on the bezel show moderate wear. On the wrist, it presents beautifully.
Cosmetically we have left the watch just as it was after finishing its lease.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function and a full-page custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
