Just in time for the holidays, Breitling introduces a new flagship, the Chronomat 01 Limited Edition. At Basel 2009, Breitling debuted the Chronomat 01 with the Caliber 01 manufacture movement, developed and produced at the brand’s workshops in La Chaux-de-Fonds. Now Breitling ups the ante with limited steel and red gold versions. Find prices and wallpaper inside.
The Chronomat 01 Limited Edition will be produced in a series 2,000 pieces in steel and 200 in red gold, both on bracelets, each piece with its individual number engraved on the side of the case at 9 o’clock. The case is also distinguished by subtle contrasted finishing – satin-brushed on the top and polished on the sides. Both the steel and gold versions feature a black dial adorned with applied hour-markers. Unlike the standard Chronomat 01 models which have solid casebacks, the Limited Edition models offer transparent sapphire crystal casebacks, providing optimal views of the in-house chronograph movement.
The Chronomat 01 Limited Edition is due to reach retailers in December. The steel version lists at $8,150, and the red gold model is priced at $39,000.
