Watches may be mechanical by nature, but this shouldn't entail a lack of playfulness or emotion when it concerns design. A play on colours and textures can evoke various notions, like how Breitling's Chronomat Automatic 36 South Sea Capsule Collection brings to mind images of summer, marine life and lush greenery.

Breitling's latest collection comprises three distinctive timepieces to the style of the Chronomat Automatic 36, adding a fresh look to the brand's latest Chronomat for Women series. The timepieces in the South Sea Capsule Collection feature special lacquered dials in beige, midnight blue and mint green, complemented by matching alligator leather straps. The additional presence of diamond-set markers and cocktail-hued gem-set bezels add a splash of tropical flair to the otherwise retro-inspired aesthetics of the Chronomat.

Style-conscious timepieces don't need to be without substance; powering the Chronomat Automatic 36 South Sea Capsule Collection is the COSC-certified chronometer-grade Breitling Calibre 10. Timepieces of this standard are assured a precision rate of -4/+6 seconds per day, measured in five positions across 15 days and at three different temperatures. Furthermore, a power reserve of 42 hours means that the watch can be left untouched for a whole day without fear of the movement running down.

This new release joins Breitling existing lineup of dedicated women's timepieces, such as the ladies Navitimer 35 and 38, and Superocean 36. The Chronomat Automatic 36 South Sea Capsule Collection also makes a cameo appearance in Breitling's partner DREST – the world's first interactive luxury fashion mobile game. Like all other fashion items found in DREST, Breitling timepieces found in-game can be seamlessly shopped for as well.
