Quartz Quality

Very few high-end watch brands offer a variety of quartz models today.  Some prestigious brands, such as Blancpain and Rolex, actually make zero battery-operated watches for men (Blancpain has never made a quartz watch since they were founded in 1735 and never will).  Breitling, however, makes sure that those watch enthusiasts who prefer their watches to house quartz movements have options.

All Breitling watches are certified by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (COSC), the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute.  COSC regulations require an automatic watch to be running on time within +6/-4 seconds a day.  Some people are so precise though that even if their watch is only a few seconds fast or slow a day, it bothers them; they prefer their watch to be as accurate as possible and therefore, look to the quartz timepieces.  Lucky for them, Breitling provides them with some awesome choices.

In addition to quartz watches such as the Colt Quartz and the Avenger Seawolf Chrono, Breitling offers some battery-operated watches with digital displays like the Aerospace, the Airwolf and the Emergency.

My personal favorite digital quartz ‘ling is the multifunctional Volcano Black Airwolf Raven.

Breitling Airwolf Raven

What a hot piece!?  I love the sporty look and it is crazy how many features it has.  In addition to the time, it has a 1/100th of a second chronograph, an alarm, a countdown timer, a second timezone with an independent alarm and a battery end-of-life indicator.  Not too shabby!
