Breitling Aerospace Night Mission - Schwanke-Kasten Jewelers

The Breitling Aerospace has long been a favorite among professionals for over 30 years. Housing a SuperQuartz movement, the Breitling Aerospace is 10 times more accurate than a standard quartz (battery) watch. In addition, the SuperQuartz movement is thermocompensated, which prevents rapid fluctuations in temperatures from throwing the time off (i.e. Midwest winters and leaving your house). However, that is not the only reason why the Aerospace is so esteemed. This watch houses a number of functions beyond telling time including: an alarm, countdown (timer) and up times, chronograph, dual time zone, UTC time and a calendar; all by controlling the crown!
Breitling Chronomat 01 44mm two-tone available at Schwanke-Kasten Jewelers

While quartz movements will always be more accurate than mechanical movements, there is something beautiful about the technical engineering of a mechanical watch.  Modern-day mechanical watches have come a long way in terms of accuracy, reliability and functionality since their inception. One of the finer mechanical watches on the market today is the Breitling Chronomat 01 44mm. The Chronomat 01 was the first range from Breitling to receive their in-house caliber B01 movement back in 2009. By controlling the full production of the movement, case and dial from start to finish, Breitling is able to reassure wearers that their in-house watches were beyond exceptionally reliable.  All movements made by Breitling (in-house or not) are certified by COSC, which is the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres), a certification given to only 3% of Swiss watches. This guarantees the watch, after being tested for 15 days in 5 positions and 3 different temperatures, will not lose more than 4 seconds or gain 6 seconds per day. Breitling’s B01 movement boasts a power reserve of 70 hours which is convenient as a workweek watch – allowing the wearer to take the watch off Friday evening and pick it up Monday morning with the watch still on time!

Milwaukee TAG Heuer dealer, Schwanke-Kasten Jewelers has F1 watches available
In the sport of Formula One, timing and accuracy is everything. Which is why TAG Heuer, back in 1986, began producing their first analog quartz watch inspired by the pinnacle of racing. While the initial creation of the TAG Heuer F1 watch was in response to the quartz movement crisis which nearly decimated the Swiss mechanical watch industry in the 70’s and 80’s, the F1 has grown into a favorite and reliable watch among TAG Heuer Fans.
Owning a watch is one step to achieving your New Year’s goal of being on time. Never be tardy again and stop by Schwanke-Kasten Jewelers in Whitefish Bay to see our full collection of luxury watches.
