The Breitling’s Chronomat is one of the most sought after timepieces from the brand, and the latest timepiece might be the boldest of them all! The Super Chronomat is a five-piece series inspired by the Frecce Tricolori watch that Breitling created for the hotshots of the Italian Air Force’s aerobatic fleet in 1983. “This is a watch you’ll get noticed in without having to worry about it,” says Breitling CEO Georges Kern. “This watch is tough enough for every pursuit, but it won’t get in the way of your sense of style.”
There are two rider tabs at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock, which are interchangeable, so the wearer can use them for countdowns and count ups. Similar to the original Chronomat, the Super Chronomat’s rider tabs protect the sapphire crystal. Breitling’s boldest Chronomat to date is the ultimate choice for those who want a timepiece mastering the balance between sturdy and stylish.
With a case measuring 44 millimeters, the Super Chronomat collection is the boldest of its kind. The Super Chronomat B01 44 comes in three versions. Two are encased in stainless steel with blue or black dial-and-bezel combinations. The third is a rich brown dial-and-bezel combination with a case in 18 k red gold. There’s a black dial version with a UTC module embedded in a Rouleaux bracelet for those wanting something extra special.
The new rubber strap is created with state-of-the-art injection molding techniques. Three distinct textures – matte, slick, and woven-looking – give it a remarkable depth. This Super Chronomat is water-resistant up to 200 meters. All timepieces are powered by the COSC-certified Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01, which provides about 70 hours of power reserve. Universal Time Coordinated delivers a way to keep track of a second time zone and is a quirky Breitling feature dating back to the 1980s.
The Super Chronomat 44 Four-Year Calendar has a semi-perpetual calendar mechanism that needs adjusting just once every leap year – or every 1461 days. It comes in two versions: a black dial with tone-on-tone chronograph counters, a stainless-steel bezel with a black ceramic bezel insert, 18 k red gold elements, or a blue dial featuring tone-on-tone chronograph counters and a bezel in 18 k red gold with a blue ceramic insert. Water-resistant up to 100 meters, this timepiece is powered by the Breitling Caliber 19, a COSC-certified chronograph movement with a semi-perpetual calendar with day, date, month, and moon phase indicators.
The Super Chronomat is a supercharged, all-purpose sports watch that’s elegant enough for the evening as well.
