Bold, Bright, and Uniquely Triumph: Breitling Hits the Road with Chronomat B01 42 Triumph

Breitling and Triumph Motorcycles unveil their third collaboration that brings together the spirit of motorcycling and the world of watches. In 2024, the Chronomat, one of the Swiss brand best known timepieces, takes center stage.

Launched in 1984, at the height of the thin quartz watch, Breitling made a bold bet on an impressively proportioned mechanical watch. The Chronomat celebrated Breitling’s centenary in style and marked the return of the mechanical chronograph to its rightful place in the brand’s rich stopwatch heritage.

The Chronomat B01 42 Triumph has a 42mm titanium case with an 18-karat gold ring framing the unidirectional bezel. The crown and chronograph push-pieces are also in 18K red gold. The water resistance is rated up to 200 meters.

The luminescent dial has a gorgeous anthracite hue that provides a cool backdrop for the chronograph counters and small seconds. The indices and hands are tone on tone with the red gold accents. A closer look reveals two nice details: The Triumph logo on the center stop second hand and the “for the ride” motto on the inner tachymeter scale.

The motor of the new Chronomat B01 42mm is the tried-and-tested Caliber 01, a COSC-certified chronograph movement with a column-wheel, vertical coupling, and 70 hours of power reserve. Its details can be admired through a pane of sapphire crystal in the case’s screw-down back. The brown perforated leather strap with folding clasp complements the bold yet elegant appearance.

Pricing for the Breitling Chronomat B01 42 Triumph is marked at $10,900 excl. sales tax.
