Received the Chronoliner today!

A birthday gift to myself!



I saw the Chronoliner at an AD in Vegas many years ago and fell in love with it. Almost bought it at the time but decided against it.
Then I lost interest in watches altogether for a few years. But during the last few months, I started to get the itch again.
I was looking for either a GMT or a Chrono. Date feature was also preferred.
Almost pulled the trigger on a few Sinns...and Grand Seiko/Omega GMTs. Then I recalled the Chronoliner b/c it had all the features I was looking for! I found one that was essentially new so I ordered it over the weekend and it arrived today!
The watch looks and feels amazing. Though its 46mm, it wears much smaller. I owned the SuperOcean Heritage 46mm many years ago and I sold it b/c it felt like a tank on my wrist. The Chronoliner, while their is heft, it isn't overwhelming...in both size and weight.
I really like the strap as well. Not sure if this is common with other Breitling straps as well...but it doesn't have a buckle. Instead it has a clasp and on one end you can slide the strap in/out for micro adjustments.

Anyhow, super happy with this watch and hope to wear it for years to come!

Congrats! That’s a great piece. Tried one on last time I was at the Oculus boutique in NYC many moons ago. The bezel is something else. Tied with my favorite modern Breitling, the new Chronomat.

Congrats, great looking watch, I’m going to look at the Superocean heritage 46 once lock down ends, I have a 9 inch wrist so hopefully will be ok.

I have a 7in wrist so for sure you won't have any issues with the size!



I love the SOH 46mm, especially the Chrono on a mesh bracelet!

Itís looks great in pictures, but want to try on first, I was initially trying for an SD43 but not much chance of that so browsed the net and the SOH really stood out to me.

Good choice! The Chronoliner is one of the most underrated Breitlings in existence. Most people don't know you could have gotten a ceramic bezel on Navitimer style pilot bracelet from Breitling at all, that was it.
