With the Chronomat 44, Breitling has created a second and highly exclusive version of its leading Chronomat model, which is asserting itself more strongly than ever as the benchmark among mechanical chronographs. This top-notch instrument is equipped with Caliber 01, the first movement entirely developed and produced in-house. A reliable, sturdy and accurate motor brilliantly embodying the philosophy of Breitling chronographs – and as such naturally chronometer-certified. The Chronomat 44 also stands out for the strong character of its masterfully reinterpreted design. From the overall lines to the smallest finishing detail, it reveals a concern for aesthetic sophistication and luxury that place it in a league of its own within the world of chronographs. The unidirectional rotating bezel is adorned with exclusive engraved numerals. The dials, available in hour-marker or Roman numeral versions, display their information with exemplary clarity enhanced by a clever play on colors, materials and depth effects. As an authentic Breitling “instrument for professionals”, the Chronomat 44 is also built to face the most extreme conditions. Its construction affords excellent protection against impacts and its water resistance to 500 meters (1,660 ft) represents a performance worthy of a professional diver’s watch.
