Breitling’s Super Chronomat Gets Upgraded With ‘80s-Inspired Features

May 7, 2021

Category: Style

While not everything from the 1980s deserves to make a comeback (the hair can stay), some things absolutely should return, like wedge-shaped supercars, practical special effects, and quirky Breitling Chronomats. Thankfully, we’re getting the latter thanks to Breitling’s newest addition to their modern Chronmat line, the Super Chronomat.

Sized at a hefty 44mm, the Super Chronomat is certainly deserving of its name, but its size isn’t the only thing that makes this watch super. Available as a standard chronograph or as a chronograph/four-year calendar that needs to be adjusted just once quadrennially to account for leap years, the Super Chronomat borrows a couple of nifty features from the Millennial-aged Chronomat. One is the rider tabs at 15 and 45 on the bezel, which can be swapped to change the functionality from a countdown to a count-up bezel. The bezel, by the way, is ceramic — a first for a Chronomat. Next is a UTC module embedded in the Rouleaux bracelet. An ‘80s quirk, this mini-dial can be used to track a second timezone and is exclusively available as an option on the black steel B01 44 Super Chronomat variant. The entire line is available now from Breitling, with prices starting at $8,500.

Purchase: $8,500+
