The term Chronomat is rooted in the 1940s when Breitling assigned some of its watches this title. It is the portmanteau of “chronograph for mathematics,” with a direct reference to the calculations done during flights. After nearly 40 years, when the modern Cheap Breitling Chronomat Replica originally appeared, Breitling has today unveiled a new Chronomat collection during a webcast video conference.
Style and features are a nod to a chronograph which became highly sought-after, back then, and preserve the signature modern-retro style that made that Chronomat a must-have among watch aficionados across the globe. First, the Breitling Replica Watches Big Sale designers restyled the rotating bezel and its unmistakable rider tabs, which allows you to grab the rotating bezel safely.
Those placed at 3 and 9 o’clock, as once was on the original model, can be unscrewed and interchanged, allowing the wearer to use them for countdown too. Aesthetically, the satin/glossy finish is such than, in comparison to the original model, the bezel has a glossy finish while the rider tabs are satin-finished instead.
The Breitling Replica Watches push-buttons are not rounded any longer, but feature an unusual elliptical shape, thus making the Breitling Chronomat B01 42 sleeker. The lugs are solid and elongated to accommodate the integrated steel Rouleaux bracelet, whose finish is as brushed as the case. Its design is a hallmark; the horizontal links include thin and shiny inserts that enhance the premium touch and feel.
The AAA Breitling Replica case measures 42mm, across, and is 15,1mm thick. Through the sapphire case back, you can enjoy a view of the mechanical movement that powers this new chronograph, the in-house Breitling 01 caliber, widely recognized as a best-in-class automatic movement both in terms of performance and robustness.
Equipped with a bi-directional winding rotor, it runs at 4Hz (28800v.p.h.) and offers no less than 70 hours of power reserve. The chronograph comes also equipped with a column-wheel mechanism and vertical clutch. All the new Breitling Chronomat B01 42 watches first copy are COSC certified as chronometers and are waterproof up to 20 bar (200 meters).
Summarizing, if the previous Chronomat has never been my cup of tea, I believe Breitling hit the nail on the head with this new collection. The brand revamped a legendary collection while holding its pedigree, and confirming the Chronomat watches for men as one of the most recognizable chronographs in the industry.
To my great surprise, no GMT variant has been released so far, something I hardly understand given the direct link to flight, which also means traveling across different timezones. The Breitling watches for sale near me current line up offers four product references and ten variants: six come in steel, three in steel / red gold, all offering a Rouleaux bracelet, while the red gold Chronomat B01 42mm comes on rubber.
