Breitling Chronomat 44 in detail
The Chronomat 44 has a lot to offer in a diameter of 44 millimetres. Characteristic features such as the unidirectional rotating bezel, the four riders or the cambered sapphire glass mirrored on both sides make up the watch’s incomparable charm. If you’re intrigued by this functional chronograph, you can choose between a stainless steel version or a bi-colour version made of steel and gold. The Breitling Chronomat 44 is the perfect men's watch.
Robust crown & case back
Thanks to the screwed crown and case back, the model is extremely robust. Two additional seals protect the Chronomat 44 watch from the ingress of water to the highest possible level.
In addition to the four tabs, the functional bezel has a five-step scale and an illuminated dot for easy reading during diving time.
At three, six and nine o'clock there is a sub-dial for displaying the ¼-second, 3-minute and 24-hour timers. The dial is also equipped with a date display between four and five o'clock.
Certified in-house caliber Breitling Chronomat 44 B01
At the heart of the Breitling Chronomat 44 is the COSC-certified, in-house caliber B01. This mechanical movement features automatic winding and a power reserve of around 70 hours.
The Breitling Chronomat 44 on famous wrists
Not only adventurers, athletes and amateur athletes rely on Breitling's unique Chronomat 44. Notable Hollywood actors like John Travolta are also avid fans of the watch. When Travolta is not in front of the camera, he is often sitting in the cockpit. As an accomplished hobby pilot, it is hardly surprising that he was appointed Breitling's official brand ambassador in 2005. The Hollywood star was mostly seen in campaigns for the legendary Breitling Navitimer, but privately he prefers a Breitling Chronomat 44.
Football legend and fashion icon David Beckham is also an enthusiastic Breitling fan. From 2012 to 2017, he was the official face of the Breitling Transocean Chronograph Unitime campaign; in private you can often see the athlete with a Chronomat 44 model on his wrist.
