via www.acquiremag.com Breitling is taking it all the way back to 1915 when the company created the first independent chronograph pushpiece. Their Transocean Chronograph 1915 celebrates the 100th year of that invention with a watch inspired by the original model. Just like the original, the watch features the pushpiece at 2 o'clock which can engage the watch's start, stop and zero-reset functionality.
