Breitling Chronomat Facelift Part 2

Last week we started discussing the Breitling Chronomat luxury watch and its new facelift. The new watch is called the Breitling Chronomat B01 and it introduces for the 1st time its own 100% in-house chronograph movement.

Here are more features to expect…

Design: Sophisticated and elegant the new Chronomat B01 has a sleek design that out rivals its counterparts. From the circle engraved numerals to the geometric design of the dial this watch pull out all the stops. Our favorite feature this Breitling luxury watch is the color play of metallic’s that offer unique character and design. The leather strap can add a trendy spin why the Pilot bracelet keeps things traditional… the options are endless. The Chronomat B01 is available in four versions including steel, steel with a gold bezel, steel with a two tone bezel, and all gold. Other features include diamond polished hands, square grid patterned zone, and quarter hour markers on the bezel.

Luxury: It wouldn’t be a luxury watch without luxurious beginnings. The Chronomat B01 was created by Breitling in the Breitling Chronmetrie workshops in La Chaux-de-Fonds. The watch has a COSC certificate. The COSC is a competitive chronometer certificate where only 5% of watches produced can lay claim.

Next week will be the final look at the new Breitling Chronomat B01. We’ll check out the movement and luxury watch assembly.

Breilting Chronomat Facelift Part 1

The Chronomat gets a serious facelift from Breitling and we just can’t cover this new Breitling luxury watch all in one blog posts. One of Breitling’s most loving watches goes under a serious operation and comes out of the operating room looking stunning.

We are talking about the new Breitling Chronomat B01 with a 100% in-house chronograph movement:

The Case: The case of the new Breitling Chronomat B01 has a elongated profile that molds the wearers wrist for a perfect fit. Aviation always being the theme, the unidirectional rotating bezel focuses on the need for flight and drive times by incorporating engraved numerals.

The Dial: The dial is stunning and the options are endless. You can get the dial in an hour marker or Roman numeral version. The design mixes a number of colors and materials to not only enhance the appeal of the watch but to increase visibility.

The Guts: We call the motor the guts because without good guts… well the watch would be nothing. The new Caliber B01 has some amazing features just like the older Breitling Chronomat luxury watches which can be traced all the way back to 1884. The Chronometer-certified watch has gone through 15 days of testing to make sure it received the coveted COSC certification like all Breitling watches. The result? 1,650 feet of water resistance, reliability, amazing precision.
