By TLex BREILTLING continue to expand their Chronomat family. In 2009 BREITLING chose the new flagship Chronomat B01 to house their first in-house calibre. In 2010 they released a Limited Edition of the watch. 2011 saw the release of the Chronomat GMT, which housed the B04, a COSC-certified, 47 jewel Breitling manufacture calibre.
They also released a special Chronomat 44 MOP 'BlackEyed' Edition for the Japanese domestic market as well as the American Tribute watch for the US market. For 2012 Breitling have simply released a scaled down version of the Chronomat GMT. The watch has all the same features and functions, houses the same B04 Cal. but with a 44mm case rather than 47mm . . .
From BREITLING Breitling presents the Chronomat GMT in a new 44 mm diameter, ready to conquer wrists at the four corners of the globe. In addition to its slightly smaller size, this new version stands out for the rotating bezel which displays a third time zone over 24 hours. The Breitling 04 calibre – COSC-certified and developed and manufactured entirely by Breitling – ensures unprecedented ease of use.
Breitling achieves what travellers everywhere have dreamed of: to move instantly to the time and date of their destination, and continue to keep time in their home city over 24 hours, with no loss of precision in the minute display.
