Breitling Chronomat 44 GMT is not a clock, I immediately sat down and wrote a comment – I often look back at the watch. I mean, at least one week of moving watch reviews, I don’t have a lot of time to postpone these things on blog observations. Still, I have a lot of potential directions to review and discuss. I need to think for a while. why? Ok, because I think it is a very important high-end watch in the US (although it is a Swiss watch), I hope people can clearly know what it means.
This is not to say that Cheap Breitling Replica Watches is not so important internationally, but since I am American and we have a “fragile” view of high-end timepieces, I think Breitling is helping people to think about the overall view of this quality watch. A lot of work. In Asia or Europe, it is well known that luxury watches cost thousands of dollars (or more), and the prices of major brands are more or less. Although there are more and more cases in the United States, ordinary people are not familiar with the high-end watch market – although they may be familiar with the high-end car market. Having said that, Breitling is one of the few brands in the United States known as the “pretty watch” manufacturer. Companies such as Breitling, Rolex and Tag Heuer have played an important role in advancing the entire market segment throughout this big country.
The end result of this responsibility is that these brands cannot do too much experimentation. They developed a fragile formula that could work in a discerning market, and too many biases could really affect their image. This is one of the reasons why brands like Breitling Replica Watches don’t often publish art-limited models, or those that deviate a lot from their carefully crafted “brand DNA.” Said that they still need innovation. Like any company, consumers expect Breitling watches to get better and better over time.
Breitling has done a very good job of complying with these rules. Although today’s Breitling looks similar to Breitling Replica a few decades ago, there is no doubt that today’s Breitling model is the best. Having said that, I believe that around the 1980s, we knew that the look and feel of the core design style of Breitling had taken shape. These include a bezel with a complex appearance, a thick, high-polished steel case and bracelet structure, and a pilot instrument dial. It looks so iconic and it is sometimes difficult to understand all the details. One thing that surprised me was that the Breitling watch dial has a unique “busy” look, but never felt too hard to read.
This led me to discuss this cute Breitling Chronomat 44 GMT. The dial has several different fonts, a number indicating ring, a pointer and several colors. Still, it’s clear what the function of the dial is, reading time, GMT pointer or chronograph pointer is not difficult. This may not be easy, but the result is a cool tool – the look of the watch is still exquisite and useful. I blame the Breitling watch that often looks the same. This is real. As my expert, I often confuse the name and model of the Fake Breitling Watches. You know it is Breitling, but Breitling is usually a harder problem.
For the new Breitling Chronomat collection, Breitling has designed a new bezel design and a modern look. This gives all Breitling Chronomat models a discernible look – Breitling wants you to see this because every watch has an internally built movement. A few years ago, the original Breitling Chronomat was the first watch to include the interior of the Breitling movement. The Breitling Chronomat B01 features an internally manufactured and designed 01 movement. 01 has become the basis of the follow-up movement. The difference between the original Breitling Chronomat and this model was the addition of the GMT hand. In the Breitling Chronomat 44, the GMT is the Breitling Caliber 04 automatic chronograph movement. Unfortunately, the case has no showcase because the movement looks very nice. 04 has a 70-hour power reserve (about three days means you can safely not wear it all weekend without stopping it), and the chronograph is based on column wheels. There are other nice features that show that Swiss Breitling Watches is not just making ETA versions that they already use.
Breitling is certified by the COSC Chronometer, and most watches (maybe I can think of it now) are the standard for measuring accuracy. Using a 12-hour chronograph is a pleasure to ensure the click of the screw-in button, although the rounded tip of the screw-in crown (although it looks good) is not the perfect way to manually wind the movement when necessary . One quirk of this movement is a blessing and a curse. Similar to the Omega 8500 or 9300, the Breitling Calibre 01 features fast hour adjustment to reset time while traveling without the need to reset the minute hand. This is handy, but it’s also how you set the date (by fast pushing or backtracking with the hour hand). This means that when you want to adjust the date, it only takes longer to adjust the date disc to a location. If you’re just correcting a non-31-day month, this is not a real problem, but if you don’t wear the piece all the time and are not on the winder, adjusting the date can be tedious. What I want to see is a feature that allows you to adjust the date faster. Maybe in the future.
Operating the movement is very pleasing. Breitling offers a first-class experience that ensures high-performance machines and status symbols that are of interest to people. In fact, this is one of the main reasons why Breitling has performed well in the United States. This is because people not only regard it as a luxury, but a sturdy and beautiful high-end tool watch. Although the brand and watch structure are completely Swiss-style, Breitling Chronomat’s design has a certain American style. This special dial is black with a silver-plated dial but also in other colour versions.
In addition to Colt and Superocean GMT, Breitling has not provided many GMT models. It is a good idea for Breitling to add this popular second time zone complication to its core chronograph movement. These two complications together constitute a very useful travel watch. GMT has a large red arrow on hand that is very easy to see. The one-hour mark is the 24-hour scale of the GMT hand, which is very useful when trying to read. There is also a second GMT time stamp on the rotating bezel. In addition to the ring on the dial, you can use this feature, or rotate to track the third time zone. The dial also contains the tachometer scale on the flange. This is not a particularly useful feature, but Breitling adds it to help the dial look the best and try to be “Bai Ning”.
The details of the entire watch are great. The Breitling case and dial have been carefully processed and rendered. A close-up image of the dial shows the clarity of the print and the pointer. I want to say here that shooting the dial of the Breitling Chronomat 44 GMT is a complete pain. This is usually the case when you need to use a flash and dial with reflective elements (usually sapphire crystal coated with an anti-reflection film)… The Breitling watch without reflective elements is almost a god. The hand and hour markers are also used for night viewing using a significant number of SuperLumiNova. Although the amount of lume does not seem to be a lot, the application is enough to make the part easy to read only after being charged for a while. There is also a large lume pip on the bezel.
The highly polished steel case is the symbol of the Breitling watch. They help to make pieces just as tools to make items. Breitling isn’t that subtle, subtle way to add bling to other serious utilitarian designs. I can handle a lot of polished steel and steel shells. Breitling places great emphasis on the use of very good metals and uses very good polishing techniques. The only non-polished area on the watch is the bezel surface. Brushed steel brings a sharp contrast. The Breitling Chronomat 44 GMT is heavy and feels very strong. It is also waterproof 200 meters. So be sure to bring a little dive.
The bottom cover is deeply engraved and tightened. Breitling has done a good job, making it feel like a musical instrument that lasts for decades. One disadvantage of all polishing is that, like most highly polished steel watches, the case is prone to hair wear and scratches. This is inevitable, but most people who buy Breitling like it seems to have been used a bit. Jerry Seinfeld is a good example. One story that Breitling dealers know is that Seinfeld once brought some of his Breitling watch services (he has a lot). He asked these cases not to be perfected. Normally, the case of polishing during service. Obviously, the message did not pass and the watch was indeed polished. Seinfeld saw signs of wear and tear in the case to prove his wear and emotional attachment to each watch. When he took the watch back, he completely turned over.
As the name implies, the Breitling Chronomat 44 GMT has a 44 mm wide case. Given that the wide lugs are a bit big on the wrist – I like it. Having said that, I personally only wear the smaller Breitling Chronomat GMT. The original version is called “Chronomat GMT” and is 47 mm wide. It looks the same, but it’s just bigger. Even if you can usually wear a 47mm wide watch (sometimes I do), if the 44 sound is too small, you may want to try it first. The lugs are very long and you should make sure they don’t stick out of your wrists. Attached to the Breitling Chronomat 44 GMT, this is one of Breitling’s exquisite steel “Pilot” bracelets. It also has a range of straps including Barenia leather, crocodile skin, Ocean Racer rubber and Diver Pro rubber.
As a steel watch, the Breitling Chronomat 44 GMT is one of the more expensive Breitling watches, mainly because of its internal movement. I was deeply impressed when I first saw this piece, and I can participate in the list of top watches from the 2012 Baselworld Watch (see Baselworld 2012) (see article). After the review, I still think this is a very good watch, of course worth the real estate space on your wrist. The high-end sports watch of about $10,000 is highly competitive. With a solid brand and good design, the Breitling Chronomat 44 GMT embodies the brand’s most suitable brand (especially in the US). The price of the bracelet is $9,820.
