The Swiss Made connected watch
The Exospace B55 was entirely developed, assembled, finished and tested in Switzerland, including the production of movement ébauches (blanks) in the workshops of Breitling Chronométrie. The smartphone application was also developed and produced in Switzerland. This was an obvious choice for Breitling, which has always defended Swiss Made tradition and innovation.

The instrument for Men of Action
The Exospace B55 can also simultaneously indicate two timezones, one with the hands, and the other on the digital display. Thanks to the ingenious SWAP function, these two timezones can be reversed by pressing once on the pushpiece, while taking account of any possible date change. This system is extremely useful and practical when traveling, making it possible to have local time easily indicated by the hands at any time.
The Exospace B55 chronograph records up to 50 intermediate times. It has a “flyback” function which serves to launch a new timing operation while the chronograph is already functioning. The tachymeter enables measurement of average speeds for a given distance, with a unit conversion option. Users can download all these results on their smartphone in order to read them more easily, store or share them.
The “lap timer” chronograph allows several times to be measured in succession, for example during a motorsports competition. Stopping one timing operation automatically starts the following one. The user can store and reread a maximum of 50 times, displaying the best result, once the timing operation is complete. Thanks to the connection, this information can also be downloaded and managed on the smartphone.
The “chrono flight” aeronautical system serves to record “block times” (the time elapsed between the moment the airplane begins to move to the time it stops at the end of its mission) along with flight times, while memorizing the date, departure and arrival times, takeoff and landing times as well as airport codes. Users can then download all this information to their smartphone.
Countdown / Up
The “countdown/countup” function, also known as MET (Mission Elapsed Time) is used for longer-term missions or, for example, for regattas. It offers two options: starting a countdown (the duration of which can be configured) and a timing operation or perform an “absolute timing operation” by starting the counting from a set value.
The “timer” function can be adjusted to 99 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds, with the choice of alarm desired (sound or vibrating or both). The timer can be interrupted and started again. During the last three minutes, the seconds hand counts the seconds and a beep emphasizes the last ten seconds. The end of the countdown is indicated by a 20-second alarm with a ten-second reminder after one minute.
Connection to the smartphone enables receipt of notifications in the event of an email (with the time of receipt), a message (SMS, WhatsApp, with the time of receipt) or a telephone call (with the time of the call and if available, the name and telephone number of the caller). It is also possible to display the day’s next appointment in hours and minutes. The watch memorizes 20 notifications with the time they took place.
