Ditching the chronograph features commonly found on Breitling watches, the Galactic 41 has a simpler face design with large hour markers and a pronounced double-window calendar display. The 41 mm case is topped with glareproofed cambered sapphire crystal and this self-winding automatic watch has 42 hours of power reserve. Waterproof up to 1000 feet, the sporty Galactic is durable enough for everyday use, yet elegant enough to wear to formal affairs. Starting at $5,985 for a steel case, the Galactic 41 is also available in other options including rose gold.
