Beckham for Breitling

Footballing legend David Beckham teams up with Breitling to bring us the Breitling Transocean Chronograph Unitime.


Footballing legend and style icon, David Beckham, is the new face of Breitling's Transocean Chronograph Unitime worldtimer watch. Founded in 1884, the Swiss watchmaker has spent well over a century focussing on watches for aviators. This latest incarnation propels Breitling's own Caliber B05 into a new realm, with a double disc that enables the wearer to view all 24 time zones.

The idea behind the new watch campaign is focussed on the world traveller who likes to indulge in a little luxury in-between globe hopping. The Unitime travel watch was originally launched in the 1950s. "I've always been a long-time admirer of Breitling," says Beckham. "As a company, it creates not only the highest-performance watches but also timeless designs that have inspired generations." Available in steel or red gold, the self-winding Transocean Chronograph Unitime has a 70-hour power reserve and has been officially chronometer-certified by the COSC, the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute.

The Beckham ads were shot by American photographer Anthony Mandler at the Mojave Air & Space Port in California, which is home to a number of entrepreneurial individuals hoping to further space flight outside of NASA. With a timepiece with such horological and aviation heritage on David Beckham's wrist, this watch is going places.
