Breitling introduce the boldest addition to the iconic Chronomat collection in the Super Chronomat – the ultimate timepiece that unites style and durability.

Inspired by the Frecce Tricolori watch that Breitling created for the hotshots of the Italian Air Force’s aerobatic fleet in 1983, the Super Chronomat is a supercharged, all-purpose sports watch that is elegant enough for the evening too.

A Breitling Icon

The launch of the first-ever Breitling Chronomat in 1984 ignited the comeback of mechanical Swiss timepieces after the 1970s saw quartz watches dominate the market. The Chronomat challenged the trend of its times with its bold proportions and ultimately became an icon. A celebration of Breitling’s 100th anniversary, the Chronomat marked the beginning of global growth for the brand in the revolutionary move to bring back the mechanical chronograph. In pursuit of the next great adventure, Breitling return with the Super Chronomat redesigned for ultimate style and performance.

The Super Chronomat

Breitling CEO Georges Kern depicts the bold and stylish nature of the new Super Chronomat.

“This is a watch you’ll get noticed in without having to worry about it, it’s tough enough for every pursuit, but it won’t get in the way of your sense of style.”

Honouring the original design, the Super Chronomat features the rider tabs protecting the sapphire crystal. Those at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock are interchangeable so that the wearer can use them for countdowns and count ups. In a Chronomat first, the sophisticated timepieces feature a stainless-steel bezel with ceramic insert plus the choice of Rouleaux-inspired rubber straps.

Style and Performance

The Super Chronomat B01 44 comes in three versions. Two are encased in stainless steel with blue or black dial-and-bezel combinations. The third is a rich brown dial-and-bezel combination with a case in 18k red gold. Each model features contrasting silver chronograph counters powered by the COSC-certified Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01, which provides about 70 hours of power reserve. This Super Chronomat is water-resistant up to 200 meters.

As its name implies, the Super Chronomat 44 Four-Year Calendar has a semi-perpetual calendar mechanism that needs adjusting just once every leap year. It comes in two versions: a black dial with tone-on-tone chronograph counters, a stainless-steel bezel with a black ceramic bezel insert, 18k red gold elements, or a blue dial featuring tone-on-tone chronograph counters and a bezel in 18k red gold with a blue ceramic insert.
