Breitling’s supercharged mechanical multi-sport watch
Breitling’s most daring Chronomat Super Chronograph to date is the ultimate choice for those who want a timepiece that strikes a balance between robustness and style.
Inspired by Breitling’s Frecce Tricolori watch created for the 1983 Italian Air Force aerobatic fleet boom, Super Chronomat is a supercharged, versatile sports fake watch that is also elegant at night.
Breitling CEO Georges Kern said: “This is a watch that you don’t have to worry about but will get attention.” “This watch is sufficient for all pursuits, but it will not hinder your sense of style. “
Like the original Chronomat, the rider buckle protects the sapphire crystal. Watches at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock are interchangeable, so the wearer can use them for countdown and countdown. The case size of the Super Chronomat series is 44 mm, which is the boldest in its class. Key new features include a stainless steel bezel with ceramic inserts (the first on Chronomat), and a Rouleaux style rubber strap or the iconic metal strap with a butterfly buckle. The new rubber strap is made with the most advanced injection molding technology. Its three unique textures-matte, smooth and woven appearance-give it extraordinary depth.
Three color schemes
There are three versions of Super Chronomat B01 44. The two watch cases are made of stainless steel and come with a blue or black dial and bezel combination. The third is the rich brown dial and bezel combination, and the 18k rose gold case. All functions use a contrasting silver chronograph, powered by the COSC-certified Breitling Calibre 01, which provides a power reserve of approximately 70 hours. This super chronograph is water resistant up to 200 meters. For those who want something special, there is a black dial version with UTC module embedded in the Rouleaux bracelet. This provides a way to track the second time zone with reference to Universal Time, and is a weird feature of Breitling, whose history can be traced back to the 1980s.
Once every leap year
As the name suggests, the Super Chronomat 44 four-year calendar has a semi-permanent calendar mechanism that only needs to be adjusted once every every year or every 1461 days. It comes in two versions: black dial with tone chronograph; stainless steel bezel with black ceramic bezel and 18k rose gold elements; or blue dial with tone chronograph and bezel. 18K rose gold with blue ceramic inserts. This watch is water-resistant to 100 meters and is powered by Breitling Calibre 19. This is a COSC-certified chronograph movement with a semi-permanent calendar with date, date, month and moon phase indications.
Signs of that era
When cheap Breitling launched the Chronomat in 1984, it marked the comeback of Swiss mechanical timepieces after the dominance of quartz watches in the 1970s. The impressive new mechanical watch proved to be a winner-challenging its slender quartz rival with its bold proportions and becoming a symbol of its era. Chronomat also helped Breitling celebrate its centenary, marking the return of Breitling’s mechanical chronograph that has established a global reputation. This technical heritage, coupled with particularly stylish design specifications, made Chronomat the ultimate sports fashion watch of the time. Today, it will be used again for everyday superheroes to pursue the next great adventure.
