Under current CEO Georges Kern, Breitling has largely moved away from the rough, aggressive aesthetics that defined the brand in the 2000s and most of the 2010s in favor of a more fluid, more Corporate identity in traditional style. While this sleeker retro design language has proven generally successful among consumers, there is still ample demand for powerful, functional sports chronographs. Breitling’s latest collection aims to distinguish the difference between the two design philosophies, combining the more refined 80s-inspired look of the current Chronomat collection into a true heavy-duty sports watch platform. The resulting new Breitling Super Chronomat collection, including the Breitling Super Chronomat B01 44 and the Breitling Super Chronomat 44 Four-Year Calendar, perfectly combines Breitling’s larger watch offerings from the past with the more refined style of the brand’s current collection, supported by some unique touches and Brand first.
Each model in the Breitling Super Chronomat collection features a 44mm version of the mainline Chronomat’s 42mm case. While the similarities between the two collections don’t end there, the Super Chronomat’s new case design is more than just an upgrade of the existing look. Almost every element here has been instrumented to be more singular and aggressive. The crown guards are more pronounced and squared, the fine coin-edged ridges of the unique bullet-shaped crown are replaced by black or blue re-grooved teeth, the half-tapered pushers of the standard series are replaced by the more durable screw pushers in black or blue hat. The unique rivet-edged bezel has also been revamped here, getting the Chronomat series’ first ceramic inserts at 3 and 9 o’clock and a replaceable rider tag to allow between countdown and countdown bezel functions exchange. However, the sleeker look of the modern Breitling has not been completely abandoned, as elements such as the elegantly thin polished chamfers that run along the sides of the case remain intact.
Despite this theme being heavier and more purposeful, the overall thickness of the Super Chronomat is comparable to the standard Chronomat, with the Super Chronomat B01 44 at 14.45mm, and the Super Chronomat 44 Quadrennial Calendar at nearly the same thickness at 14.55mm. Like the standard 42mm Chronomat, all models in the Super Chronomat collection feature a sapphire display caseback, the Super Chronomat B01 44 offers a 200-meter water resistance rating, while the Super Chronomat 44 four-year calendar boasts a still solid 100-meter water resistance rating. Breitling interprets this new look in a variety of metals, the Super Chronomat B01 44 is available in stainless steel with a blue or black ceramic bezel, and in warm 18K red gold with a chocolate brown ceramic bezel. On the other hand, the Super Chronomat 44 four-year calendar,
Like the case, the dial of the Breitling Super Chronomat collection takes on an exaggerated style over the basic Chronomat look. While the general form is the same, especially the Super Chronomat B01 44, the execution here is heavier. The spiked handset appears noticeably wider in the initial image, as does the faceted application index. However, the Super Chronomat B01 44 most notably changes the font on the current Chronomat is its treatment of the chronograph sub-dials. Whether the base dial color is matte black, cobalt blue sunburst, or the rich sunburst brown of the rose gold version, the partially snailed subdials of each version are a contrasting silver. This bright reverse panda look makes the Super Chronomat B01 44 instantly distinguishable from its little cousin,
On the other hand, the Breitling Super Chronomat 44 four-year calendar offers a more dramatic and unique look from the start compared to the base Chronomat. As the name suggests, the Super Chronomat 44 Quadrennial Calendar packs a ton of complications into a relatively streamlined four-axis dial layout. To this end, chronograph subdials at 12 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock are nested in the pointer date, day and month displays respectively. The subdial at 3 o’clock remains open to reveal the small and concise moon phase complication. Breitling continues the case’s two-tone highlights here, with gold hands, dial hardware, and slender gold bezels for the subdials. To balance this shinier, more sophisticated look, the black and sunburst blue dial versions forgo The contrasting sub-dials are replaced by a monochrome design. top replica watch
For the Super Chronomat B01 44, Breitling turned to its in-house B01 automatic chronograph movement. Equipped with a column wheel and vertical clutch drive system, the B01 is a complete modernization of an automatic chronograph, boasting COSC-certified chronometer accuracy and a robust 70-hour power reserve at a beat rate of 28,800 bph. The Super Chronomat 44 four-year calendar is equipped with a B19 automatic semi-perpetual calendar chronograph-month camera core based on the ETA 2892-A2. Despite its relatively humble roots, the B19 has undergone extensive revisions and incorporated a truly impressive array of sophistication into its design. Like the B01, the B19 is also COSC-certified, but the ETA origins of this movement stand out for an impressive 42-hour power reserve with a beat rate of 28,800 bph.
The cylindrical Rouleaux bracelet in the style of the 80s is one of the hallmarks of the current Chronomat collection, and Breitling’s watch straps and bracelets for the Super Chronomat collection reflect this unique style. Both the Super Chronomat B01 44 and the Super Chronomat 44 Four Year Calendar are available with a choice of classic Rouleaux stainless steel, 18K red gold or a two-tone bracelet depending on the case material. In addition, each model features a textured rubber strap inspired by Rouleaux, with simulated weave and polished sections in black, navy blue or tobacco brown. For the standard stainless steel Super Chronomat B01 44, the brand also offers a unique and functional UTC module bracelet. This retro-inspired element essentially turns the bracelet’s 6 o’clock end link into a fully self-contained stopwatch, complete with its own crown, dial, bezel and movement. This striking touch offers a left-field way of tracking a second time zone on the wrist and is powered by a Breitling Calibre 61 micro-quartz movement. While certainly useful and distinctive, this offbeat bracelet accessory may not be to everyone’s taste, adding further sophistication to an already intricate design. copy watches
