Chronograph by Breitling.

In the long history of Breitling's success model Chronomat the year 2009 marked an important turning point, because the Chronomat B01 is not just an externally redesigned version of the 1984 first presented classic, but is at the same time the first model of the brand with the newly developed manufacture calibre Breitling B01. The balanced symmetric dial is also likeable, where the totalisers can be again seen in the classical tricompax arrangement.

As usual for some time at Breitling, the movement of this model is certified as chronometer by the COSC.
