Sky's THE LIMIT: Breitling's Super Chronomat

Oct 20th 2022

Good things come to those who fly, and Breitling has understood and spearheaded the advancement of aviation from the beginning. When "Top Guns" ruled pop culture, Breitling was crafting timepieces that ensured they looked as incredible on the ground as they did in the sky.

Released this year, the Super Chronomat is the watchmaker's boldest, most fashionably functional Chronomat to date. Within the collection are two varieties: Super Chronomat B01 44 and the Super Chronomat 44 Four Year Calendar. Large dial lovers will adore its 44m stainless steel (or 18k gold) case. It carries several ceramic inserts as an all-purpose sports watch, but they subtract nothing from its sleek aesthetic. Interchangeable rider tabs make it easy to both count seconds or measure elapsed time.

Water-resistant up to 200 meters (660 feet), the Super Chronomat B01 44 is available on steel, 18k red gold, or rubber strap bracelets, all created in the brand's iconic Rouleaux design. As a bonus, there's also a UTC (Universal Time Coordinated) option with another watch embedded into the bracelet, allowing the wearer to keep track of a second time zone.

The Super Chronomat 44 Four-Year Calendar has a semi-perpetual calendar mechanism and thus needs to be adjusted just once every leap year or every 1461 days. It is available in two versions. One option offer fs a dynamic black dial that showcases tone-on-tone chronograph counters, a stainless-steel bezel, a black ceramic bezel insert, and 18 k red gold elements. The other contains a deep blue dial featuring tone-on-tone chronograph counters and a bezel in 18k red gold with a blue ceramic insert. Water-resistant up to 100 meters (330 feet), this timepiece is powered by the Breitling Caliber 19, a COSC-certified chronograph movement with a semi-perpetual calendar with day, date, month, and moon phase indicators.

A nearly 140-year partnership with aviation makes Breitling the official champion of humankind's conquest of the skies. Discover Breitling for yourself at Razny Jewelers in Addison, Hinsdale, and our newly expanded boutique in Highland Park.
