Featuring a steel case, water-resistant to 100 metres, on a steel bracelet, a rotating bezel and the in- house B01 chronograph movement, Breitling’s Chronomat is ready for adventure, for air as well as land and sea.

With a screwed stainless-steel caseback and a ratcheted unidirectional rotating bezel, the Chronomat B01 Chronograph 44 is equal to any adventure. 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 exceptional chronograph 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 SuperLumiNova®, 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 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.
