Description

1984 - THE CHRONOMAT 1984 is quickly approaching, and with it the 100th anniversary of Breitling. For the momentous occasion, Ernest Schneider wants to launch a new watch that would revolutionize the industry and put the mechanical chronograph back at center stage, proving that it can still attract a cool and trendy clientele. It is worth remembering that at the time the trend was on slim time-only watches, mostly powered by quartz movements; launching a substantial mechanical chronograph was a bold move from Ernest Schneider. Keenly aware that he has created a chronograph that perfectly embodies the brand’s entire philosophy and mission, he sees the chronograph “Frecce Tricolori” as the perfect foundation to develop the new standard-bearer of the Breitling spirit. In 1984, Breitling presents the Chronomat (Ref. 81950), a name that combines chronograph and automatic, Chronomat being a legendary name for Breitling as it previously stood for Chronographe Mathematique, the 1940s ancestor of the Navitimer. The “new” Chronomat success is instantaneous and global. AND IT MAKES THE CHRONOGRAPH COOL AGAIN The Chronomat keeps the design elements that made its precursor a faithful companion of Italian Jet Pilots one year before – including the signature rider tabs, the smooth and streamlined case and the iconic “Rouleaux” bracelet. The interchangeable 15 and 45 rider tabs are perfectly suited for either flight (count up) or regatta (countdown) missions and the inner tachymeter scale offers the perfect finish to make the Chronomat the ideal all-purpose chronograph. The Chronomat event gets a yachting version and a version specifically designed for the Renault F1 Team. Soon, a two-tone version is offered with rider tabs, crown and pushers in gold and gives the Chronomat a luxurious flair, making it a symbol of style. From sportsmen to businessmen, actors to jetsetters, everybody wears the Chronomat and enjoys its sport-chic look that really makes it stand apart from the competition of that period. THE EVOLUTION OF THE CHRONOMAT The Chronomat has remained in production since then and has seen several aesthetic and technical evolutions. Underscoring its cornerstone position in the Breitling collection, it also becomes the first Breitling to receive the in-house Manufacture Chronograph Caliber 01 in 2009. In 2020, the Chronomat collection has been re-designed for a new era while keeping the signature design codes of the original. With the comeback of the iconic “Rouleaux” bracelet, the Chronomat is the perfect watch for every pursuit.
