The Watch

The Breitling Chronomat was created by Ernest Schneider who acquired Breitling in 1979. He consulted with the Italian air force aerobatic team known as Frecce Tricolori.  Instead of the lugs that bend downward toward the wrist Breitling instead put the bend in the lug end of the bracelet giving it a flat profile. Another feature was the screw-on markers at noon, 15, 30, and 45 minutes on the bezel.

Polished and brushed surfaces end at stubby lugs. A lug to lug length of 45mm and a thickness of 14.5mm gives the watch excellent wrist presence. A sunburst blue dial has an outer Tachymeter chapter ring. Applied steel faceted baton indexes with lume tips mark the hours. At 3 o’clock a date window.  A framed 30-minute register at 12 o’clock, a 12-hour register at 6 o’clock, and finally 60 seconds register complete this outstanding chronograph. Sword hands coated in luminescence with a chronograph seconds hand with the Breitling anchor balance. On the reverse a screw-down case back with “Chronographe Certified Chronometre” engraved into it. Inside we have the Breitling Cal. B13 is based on the well known Valjoux 7750 movement. An Automatic with a quick set date. Beating at 28,800 beats per hour. Breitling upgrade the following movement parts, balance wheel, hairspring, and mainspring with their own alloy metals. Once reassembled the movements go through regulation and fine-tuning at Breitling, in order to meet COSC accuracy requirements. Fitted on a 20mm polished stainless steel bracelet with a signed folding clasp.

Points of Mention


This watch is sold with its original Breitling paperwork, but no original Breitling box is provided with the box. The watch comes paired on its original Breitling bracelet with a signed Breitling clasp, the total length of the bracelet is 22cm. The watch is from June 2002 and is in worn condition, but overall very good as you can see. The watch comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.

Personal Note


This is by far one of the nicest Breitling offerings from this period, tied strongly with the "Shark" reference for me! The blue just pops on the wrist as you can see from the photos. The watch has been professionally refinished to the same standard that Breitling would perform, see the macros and you'll see what I'm referring to!
