Breitling Chronomat B01

New Movement, New Status


By Gear Patrol Reader Jason Pitsch:

Breitling recently launched their new Chronomat B01. Announced prior to Baselworld, this chronograph features Breitling’s first 100% in-house movement; Not only is the watch an outstanding timepiece, but the integration of Breitling’s new movement is a huge accomplishment, vaulting the company into the elite ranks of true manufacturers.

The column-wheel type chronograph movement is accurate to 1/4th of a second, is COSC certified, has a 70 hour power reserve, and is water-resistant to 500 meters. The B01 boasts no shortage of configurations either, making it sure to suit any taste. Models are available in steel, steel + gold, and 18K rose gold, on a bracelet or strap, and with dial color choices such as Antarctica White, Carbon Black, Riviera Blue, and Sierra Silver (just to name a few).
