The new Galactic 29A Breitling ticking to women`s time

Known above all for its resolutely masculine models (that also delight many women with a passion for aviation), Breitling is also brilliantly capable of interpreting this spirit in the feminine mode. Witness the new Galactic 29, available in a number of distinctive versions, including one fitted with a tungsten carbide bezel.

The new Galactic 29 is unquestionably feminine in terms of its 29 mm-diameter size, making it the smallest Breitling model. Its womanly charm is also expressed through a number of refined details such as mother-of-pearl dials, gemset bezels, diamond-hour-markers and rose gold versions.

As far as the rest is concerned, Breitling has clearly remained true to its philosophy of excellence. The clean, crisp design is a combination of innate class and strong personality. Fitted with a fluted crown that facilitates handling, the case is water-resistant to 100 m (330 ft), a rare feat for a ladies’ watch. The pure and eminently readable dial is swept over by large hands ensuring optimal legibility, further reinforced by the sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides. The SuperQuartz™ movement, chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), achieves a degree of precision ten times higher than standard quartz.

Created for women whose vision of elegance is inseparable from performance, the new Galactic 29 is available in new versions designed to meet every wish. Steel or rose gold cases. Gemset or smooth bezels. Mother-of-pearl or black dials. Hour-markers or diamonds. In its non-set version, the steel model is topped by a bezel in tungsten carbide, an ultra-resistant high-tech composite material whose original shade makes a subtle contrast with the polished steel. To accompany every moment of an active lifestyle, the new Galactic 29 can be teamed with a metal bracelet or a strap in leather, Sahara leather (with raised “dune” motif) or rubber. A Breitling ticking to women’s time.
