Written by Mike Sanders on . Posted in Watches

Breitling Company was founded in 1880 by Leon Breitling. He was a watchman that opened a workshop on creating precise chronographs and timers used in industrial and scientific purposes. Breitling name is closely related to aviation and automotive brand Bentley. This name is found in many parts used in these two areas.

In 2011, Breitling Chronomat model made an appearance at Baselworld, which displays time from GMT2 and GMT1 areas with impressive accuracy. This is due to Breitling caliber 04, a modified version of the famous B01, which has been studied and developed in their workshop. The watch also keeps the original architecture, including features that guarantee high accuracy including refocusing and patented a device for resetting hammers. The whole mechanism is automatic COSC certified, with a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, 47 jewels and a power reserve of 70 hours.

The Breitling Company has developed a new model for the Breitling Chronomat brand  that will be available and also will be presented at Baselworld in 2012. The new model comes with changes and we have to mention that the changes in this case are innovative.

The case of 47 mm, that the previewed model had, has been narrowed in order to get more interest from the watch fans. It has a rotating bezel, it is water resistant up to 500 meters and the dial is available in 6 colors contrast elements or in the same shade. Regardless of the color chosen, the clock has the same features: two signs for hours, one for minutes and one second, which has at the end the initial brand. Red arrow pointer is showing at home. Observe the three timers on the dial for 60 seconds, 30 minutes and 12 hours. As mentioned, this model can come in different colors and belts and they are guided by the preferences being crocodile leather or rubber with different models.

The new Breitling Chronomat GMT 44 has included a third time zone unlike its predecessor that had only two of them.

Despite of the big changes that we have expected, the new model comes with the same mechanism that was used on the old version.

Chronomat GMT watch is a sporty model, simple by lines and design, but complex by mechanisms. The price of the watch gets somewhere around 9500 dollars, but what can we say, the new Breitling Chronomat GMT 44 worth all the money.
