A watchmaking success

The Chronomat, which first appeared in 1942,  is one of Breitling's greatest successes, becoming the official timepiece of the US Air Force. Enabling time interval measurements, the Breitling Chronomat became the companion of American pilots. Its name comes from "Chrono" meaning chronograph and "mat" referring to mathematics.

About Chronomat

Breitling Chronomat: a fierce competition


The Breitling Chronomat can, with its sporty aviator watch look, boast competition from IWC's Mark XVII and Omega's Spacemaster. Despite its innovative functionalities, it was not until more than 40 years later that the Breitling Chronomat became famous, thanks to the 1984 Chronomat. The latter is distinguished from its predecessor by its performance. In addition to being waterproof up to 100 meters thanks to its new crown, it can resist an acceleration of 20 g. This feat is due to the Valjoux 7750 caliber, certified by the COSC (Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute), which has a 42-hour autonomy, is equipped with 25 jewels and is ultra-precise and robust. Finally, the 1984 Chronomat allows for countdowns thanks to its riders on the bezel. So many elements that have allowed this model to enter preserve its position as a cult watch.

To each his own Breitling Chronomat


If the Breitling Chronomat is still very successful today, it is also because it is the model offering, within the Breitling range, the largest number of different dials, cases, colors and bracelets. This timepiece is available in a variety of ways to suit all tastes. With its case available in 4 sizes (from 38 to 47), it is equally suited to men and women. Women will be more interested in the Chronomat 38. Made of steel, this discreet and light model is made of tungsten carbide for high resistance and has a leather, steel or rubber strap. Within Breitling's Chronomat range, one of the models is a great success: the GMT. With its 44 or 47 mm case, it is imposing and easy to read. But it is really the Breitling Chronomat 44 that is one of the flagship models of this collection. The Chronomat 44 is indeed water resistant up to 500 meters thanks to its screwed crown and its resistant case. In addition, it has a luminous 12 o'clock marker and a unidirectional bezel.
