Breitling Chronomat B01 42

The Breitling Chronomat has become a staple of the brand almost immediately after its introduction in the early 1980s.

Vintage flair meets contemporary proportions in the new Breitling Chronomat B01 42

Originally intended as a chronomat for mathematical calculations — hence the name Chronomat — it later advanced into a chronometer-certified chronograph with automatic winding. A watch with technicalities to match its imposing looks.

In the 2000s, the Chronomat evolved into a brash and bulky timepiece that gained a cult following for its unapologetic looks and superbly solid engineering. The Breitling Chronomat B01 42 does away with most of this  in favour of a vintage flair that trended in recent years like nothing else in the world of watchmaking world.

Unlike many of its competitors, however, Breitling chose not to release a perfect copy of a previous version, but rather took its defining codes and sprinkled them over a contemporary package.

The Rouleaux bracelet makes a big return in 2020, re-engineered with immense precision and quality.

The end result? An all-capable and robust watch that is as timeless as it is recognisably Breitling. Powered by the Breitling B01 in-house caliber and matched to a new Rouleaux bracelet, the Breitling Chronomat B01 42 is made to be a joy to use and to wear.
