I told you they were coming, and now they have arrived. The long wait is over…Breitling has officially announced several exhibition caseback models housing their extremely reputable in-house B01 chronograph movement. We have all heard about the movement, but now we can actually see it in action.
I think every owner of a Chronomat B01 I have ever talked to has told me that their watch is disgustingly accurate, and by that I mean within a second or two a day. I am sure the same will hold true for the new Chronomat 01.
I admit that the model name could have been somewhat more creative, but the actual watch is pretty money; I really dig it. I feel the same way about the Navitimer 01 and the Montbrillant 01. All three models function by way of the B01 movement and will be limited to 2000 pieces worldwide in steel and 200 pieces worldwide in gold.
The announcement of these models is a big move for the Breitling brand. Not only is Breitling filling a void in their line by coming out with some exhibition caseback models, they are doing so with their very own caliber. Now that is how it should be done!
These watches are going to receive many high praises. I cannot wait to see them in person. What do you guys think?
