Sports watches have become a popular style in recent years, and there are many styles. Breitling, known for its “hard sports” style, will not fall behind in this field. This year, Breitling has improved its mechanical chronograph collection with the new Breitling Super Chronomat 44 Four-Year Calendar Reissue (Ref. U19320161C1S1). This is the brandâ€™s most daring mechanical chronograph to date, blending durability with design, making it a well-deserved all-rounder for sports watches.
Inspired by the tri-colour arrow display team watch created by Breitling in 1983 for the master performers of the Italian Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Super Mechanical Chronograph is a watch that is sporty in all circumstances. . What we see in the picture is a four-year calendar in blue and gold, vibrant and unforgettable.
Case and Dial
The Breitling Super Chronomat we chose to review comes with a 44mm diameter and 15.55mm tall case. The stainless steel case features a two-tone concept with 18K yellow gold bezel, chronograph pusher housing and ceramic bezel insert with gold characters. The case includes the crown and chronograph pushers, coloured according to the blue theme of the model, a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on the front and a solid cover on the back. The rubber strap provides a comfortable wearing experience, and the case is water resistant to 100 meters.
The dial design is faithful to the prototype mechanical chronograph, with a blue dial and a tone-on-tone chronograph, and the bezel is set with 18-karat red gold and blue ceramic, which is understated and luxurious. The layout of the dial follows the principle of “symmetry”, the moon phase, day and date, small seconds, 30-minute counter and 12-hour counter are placed on the dial and are fully functional.
The bezel indicators at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock are interchangeable, allowing the wearer to use them for positive and negative timekeeping, making them extremely functional. The indexes, hands and bezel are all coated with Super-LumiNovaÂ®, allowing the wearer to read the time accurately even in the dark.
This model is brought to life by the Breitling Calibre 19, which we can call a perpetual calendar complication without a leap year indicator, so that the 29th of February needs to be manually adjusted every four years.
The movement is designed to add a calendar module and vertical clutch mechanism to the base of the ETA 2892-A2, and includes a chronograph function in addition to the hours, minutes, seconds, day, date, month and moon phase functions. Despite all the above features, the automatic movement offers a very effective power reserve of 70 hours when fully wound.
This model comes with a blue rubber strap with a knitted pattern inspired by the Rouleaux style bracelet, one of the signature details of the Chronomat collection.
The most notable feature of the mechanical chronograph collection is the use of the Rouleaux ball bracelet design of the 1980s. This year, Breitling innovated again, using the most advanced injection molding technology to create a ball-type rubber strap, giving the watch a different style.
Breitling has appeared to watch enthusiasts in the past few years with a new collection, which seems to have moved away from the era characterized by oversized complicated timepieces and frozen watches. Under the successful management of Georges KERN, this prestigious brand inspired by its glorious history has turned a new page and continues to consolidate its position in the world of luxury watchmaking.
