On Thursday May 28, Breitling’s new Chronomat B01 chronograph with manufacture movement goes on sale at 33 select retailers across the USA. See the table below for a complete list. Just in time for the launch, Breitling announced the publication of “Breitling The Book” by Hervé Genoud, the comprehensive new reference work that documents the brand’s 125 year history. With 336 pages and more than 450 images, the story covers everything from the first pocket watches created by Léon Breitling in 1884 through today’s “instruments for professionals”, and along the way the invention of the first independent pushpiece in 1915, the separation of the “stop/start” and “reset” functions in 1923, the invention of the second independent pushpiece in 1934, and the first selfwinding chronograph in 1969.
The Book also documents the close links between Breitling and the aeronautical world going back to the days of the aviation pioneers. Discover the famous onboard chronographs and the numerous wrist instruments intended for aviators, including the famous 1952 Navitimer that developed a cult following among pilots.
The Book is available in five languages: French, English, German, Spanish or Italian. It can be ordered via the www.breitling-the-book.com website, as well as from authorized Breitling retailers.
