The ultra-sporty, elegant and sophisticated Galactic holds a place of its own within the Breitling universe. It is intended for those who donít necessarily require chronograph functions but are still keen on having a watch capable of sharing every moment of a dynamic lifestyle, and particularly for women of character and action.
Breitling continues its conquest of feminine wrists with a new quartz version of the Galactic 36 mm model distinguished by a revamped design. The slimmer case features an extremely ergonomic profile. It is topped by a brand-new smooth bezel in tungsten carbide, an ultra-resistant high-tech composite material whose original shade creates a subtle contrast with polished steel. Tungsten carbide is made from a tungsten powder molded at high temperature and under extreme pressure. This results in incomparable hardness almost five times greater than that of steel, as well as a scratchproof surface. The dials come in black-lacquered or mother-of-pearl, with or without diamond hour-markers. The steel bracelet comprising five rows of links boasts a sturdy and comfortable construction. This model is also available with a diamond-set steel bezel. In addition, the Galactic 36 SleekT retains the sporting qualities that have forged the collectionís success, including water resistance to 100 m (330 ft), a shock-resistant case, a sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides and an extremely legible dial with luminescent hands and large hour-markers. The officially chronometer-certified SuperQuartzTM movement displays a level of precision ten times higher than standard quartz. The ultimate sports model for women.
