The New Breitling Chronomat Watches 2020
When Breitling introduced its first Chronomat in 1948, it made history instantly. The Chronomat was the first watch to feature an aviator’s slide-rule bezel. This bezel is today the hallmark of another favourite Breitling model – the Navitimer.
However, Breitling revived and released the Chronomat in 1984 after a long interval to commemorate the brand’s 100th anniversary.
Since then, it has been a cornerstone of the Breitling’s watch collections.
Interestingly, the new and latest Breitling Chronomat models are anticipated to be inspired from this 1980s version.
Thus, here is a rundown of the new Breitling Chronomat models.
Breitling Chronomat B01 42 – Frecce Tricolori Limited Edition
Breitling developed the 1984 Chronomat for the famous Frecce Tricolori of Italy, taking inspiration from aviation style.
However, the watch featured a tachymeter-scale flange, thereby appealing to auto-racing lovers.
- Additionally, it also allured yachting enthusiasts because of the signature “rider tabs” on the rotatable bezel.
- Users could grip the “rider tabs” on the bezel comfortably for setting the countdown times using the stopwatch.
- However, Breitling has offered both these features to the new Chronomat watches.
The new Chronomat also comes with unique integrated “Rouleau” styled steel bracelets and butterfly clasps.
Another significant feature is that the rider tabs at 3 o’clock and 12 o’clock positions are exchangeable. It means users can use the rider tabs for counting down or tallying up the first 15minutes interlude.
Moreover, the Chronomat Frecce Tricolori Limited Edition model flaunts a blue dial with a “Frecce Tricolori” logo and a case-back engraved “ONE OF 250”.
Breitling Chronomat B01 42 – Silver dial & Black sub-dials
The new Breitling Chronomat watches flaunt 42 mm cases in 18ct rose gold or stainless steel.
- However, they exhibit a “tricompax” dial layout with sub-dials at the 9 o’clock, 6 o’clock, and 3 o’clock positions.
- According to the latest Breitling design pattern, such a configuration signifies the use of a patented automatic B01 chronograph movement.
Moreover, this COSC chronometer-certified movement features column-wheel architecture and has a power reserve of 70hours.
Breitling Chronomat B01 42 – Bentley Limited Edition
Breitling offered the Chronomat B01 42 in several colour variations.
For example –
There is one stainless steel version that comes with copper, silver or blue dial and contrasting black sub-dials.
Moreover, Breitling also developed a special edition model, offering a British racing green dial, black sub-dials and a case-back with a Bentley logo.
Breitling Chronomate B01 42 – Copper Dial & Black Sub-dials
The Breitling B01 42 also comes with a steel case with silver dial, and silver tone-on-tone sub-dials.
It also features a rose gold crown, rider tabs and pushers.
- However, another Chronomat version sports a full rose gold bezel, crowns and pushers, and elements of the gold-and-steel Rouleaux bracelet.
- The model features either a blue dial with tone-on-tone sub-dials or anthracite dial with black sub-dials.
Moreover, the brand offered another significant Chronomat version in an 18ct rose gold case, anthracite-black dial and a black leather strap.
