While the Chronomat has long been established as the watch of choice for aviators, it has found a passionate following among people whose adventures take place not only in the air, but also on land and at sea – above and below the surface. The Ultimate pilot’s Chronograph was reimagined by Breitling for air, land, and Sea.
Breitling Chronomat B01 Chronograph 44 features a satin-brushed case presented on a stainless-steel Pilot bracelet and equipped with the extraordinary Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01. Its new understated satin-brushed case lends this timepiece a subtle contemporary flair that makes it the perfect partner for a night on the town.
This new 2018 chronograph by Breitling has been created in two versions, one with a Blackeye blue dial and the other with a Blackeye gray dial. The hands and the distinctive hour markers are coated with Super-LumiNova, making them easy to read in all lighting conditions.
Both versions boast contrasting small second, 30- minute, and 12-hour chronograph subdials, an indication of the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 movement inside. The dial, which has a date window ideally positioned between 4 and 5 o’clock, is clearly legible through a convex sapphire crystal with anti- reflective coating on both sides.
With its dual-acting ball-bearing rotor, the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 has a power reserve in excess of 70 hours. You could take this watch off on Thursday night for a long weekend (not that you would want to) and it would still be ready for action and keeping perfect time when the new week begins.
The Chronomat B01 Chronograph 44 is water- resistant to 50 bar (500 meters). As with all Breitling wristwatches, it is a COSC-certified chronometer.
