New Breitling Chronomat Watches For 2020
The Chronomat Replica reintroduces one of Breitling’s modern classics; the original model launched in 1984 and “marked a welcome return to mechanical Swiss watches which had all but disappeared when quartz watches dominated the marketplace in the 1970s,” the brand notes.
The new Breitling Chronomat Replica Watch is designed to be “at home both on the red carpet and at the beach. Breitling had in fact first used the Chronomat name in the 1940s as a portmanteau of “chronograph for mathematics.” The 1984 version updated that to mean “chronograph and automatic.”
Breitling all sized at 42mm and powered by the Replica Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 mechanical movement with a power reserve of approximately 70 hours. The distinguishing features of the new Chronomat collection are its rotating bezel highlighted by interchangeable rider tabs at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock, which “not only protect the crystal but make the manipulation of the bezel easier,” Breitling notes; along with its stainless-steel Rouleaux bracelet fitted with a butterfly clasp.
The stainless steel Fake Chronomat B01 42 is the entry level version, available with a choice of a silver, copper, or blue dial with black contrasting chronograph counters, as well as a black dial with silver registers. As an upgrade you can opt for a two-tone version with an 18k red gold crown and chronograph pushers, along with a bezel that has matching 18k red gold rider tabs.
