In my opinion, Breilting Endurance Pro is one of the most successful Swiss watches of 2020. This is an easy-to-understand entry-level Breitling sports watch with a variety of hip colors for you to choose from, which is very suitable for the times. For many people, Endurance Pro is also easy to miss. Most watch collectors want to use mechanical watches instead of quartz watches, and there is nothing wrong with calling Endurance Pro G-Shock for its fancy taste. In essence, this is not the basis for Breitling’s polished metal fan base. But Breitling responded to this.
Under the guidance of Mr. Kern, “cheap Breitling” is diversifying into more entry-level and youth-oriented approaches. Endurance Pro is still a lot of change, but it is also nearly three times cheaper than the brand’s new 2020 Chronomat B01 42, which provides a completely different but excellent wearing experience. Breitling has always been lucky, in addition to having a luxurious base, it also has a “professional” series of watches. This means that Endurance Pro can easily join the modern Breliting product lineup at a lower price, because doing so has never been uncommon for the brand. When you can’t find Rolex, Omega, IWC, etc. at this price, Breitling can still compete at an interesting price. This is the territory of TAG Heuer, but it is used for other types of customers.
The design formula of Endurance Pro is also very simple. Breitling first decided to use its Breitlight material (carbon) again and focus on the quartz movement. Please note that for an ordinary Swiss-made quartz movement, the price of $3,000 is high, but Endurance Pro does not include an ordinary Swiss movement. Inside the watch is the Breitling Caliber 82, which is the basic ETA thermally compensated quartz movement. This time, date and complicated chronograph movement has a quartz crystal adjustment system with a sensor to measure temperature. Changes in temperature can negatively affect the ability of these already precise movements to reach peak levels. Caliber 82 can compensate for the temperature changes normally encountered by watch movements worn on the wrist, with an accuracy of about 10 seconds per year. In contrast, the accuracy of a standard quartz movement is about 10 seconds per month.
You will see the “Astronomical Clock” label on the dial. This is also a real COSC astronomical watch. Please note that Swiss COSC has conducted different performance tests on quartz watches and mechanical watches. It can be expected that the test will be more stringent for quartz institutions. Once you understand how the time and energy of the movement is similar to that of a traditional mechanical watch, you can not only better understand its value proposition, but you can also experience how to truly become a professional watch.
Endurance Pro is the second generation of the product concept, which actually predates Mr. Cohen’s management of the brand. In 2017, Breitling launched the Colt Skyracer, which provides a Breitlight case and a three-hand SuperQuartz movement. With 2020 Endurance Pro, Breitling retains the core atmosphere of the entry-level sports watch theme, but tries to integrate the design language more into the current series. The Pony Skyracer is a pilot swiss watches prices inspired by the world of sports flying. Endurance Pro looks more like a watch for triathlon competitions, designed to provide multiple uses for people at regular intervals or activities.
