The Breitling for Bentley Supersports is an interesting piece for those dreaming about Bentley sports cars, but still lacking financial means (or courage) to actually buy one. Crafted from high-grade stainless steel, the chronograph is supplied in an extremely massive body, which will probably weigh half a ton and could be successfully used during a routine free-weight workout by advanced lifters.
Presented in the traditionally massive stainless steel body, the limited-edition Breitling Blackbird Red Strike Chronograph may be of particular interest to those still living in the times of the Caribbean Crisis and dreaming about preemptive nuclear strikes and reconnaissance flights over Soviet Russia. A high annual income is also a must since the chronograph won’t come cheap.
Breitling has issued a diamond-set version of its cash-cow: the Chronomat automatic chronograph. The Chronomat 01 Diamondworks is available in white gold and rose gold cases and bears enough diamonds either to rebuild the Republic of Haiti or to finance a manned mission to Mars. Thankfully, the chronograph is delivered in two versions with a more modest one having the use of diamonds limited only to its signature diving bezel.
As the name implies, the new (or, rather, upgraded) Breitling Navitimer Caliber 01 Limited Edition has undergone a complex heart transplant procedure with its mass-produced ETA-based cal. B26 movement changed in favor of their latest in-house Caliber B01. Visually, however, this is still the same good old Navitimer that hundreds of thousands of enthusiasts around the globe love so much.
The original Chronomat B01, the one equipped with Breitling’s new, totally in-house B01 automatic column-wheel chronograph movement, was first revealed in September 2009. Recently, the Swiss watchmaker has revealed a limited-edition version of the model. While being powered by the same self-winding caliber and sporting the same massive-looking body, it offers you a more interesting combination of colors, as well as a revised case back cover.
Celebrating seven years of partnership with the most famous French aerobatics team, Breitling has issued the gorgeous 2010 Chronospace Jet Team limited-edition SuperQuartz COSC-certified chronograph. As usual, it combines a traditionally oversized body with a digital/analog display and the signature notched bezel that makes it easier to operate the slide rule: another trademark feature of Breitling. The price, which is set well above $5000, is also traditionally high.
Remember the good-old, quartz-powered Chronospace? I mean, the one that was discontinued about 12 years ago? This year, Breitling decided to resurrect the popular model!
The 2010 Colt GMT + was officially introduced at the annual Baselworld 2010 trade show. The sporty three-hander comes in an easily recognizable 41.3-mm stainless steel case and is equipped with the Breitling caliber 32 COSC-certified caliber, which is based on the ETA 2893-2 movement, which is a GMT version of the omnipresent ETA 2892A2. Now, tell me about “derivative works.”
Breitling Avenger Seawolf Chrono Blacksteel SuperQuartz is the world’s first chronograph that was built to operate at depth up to 1000 meters, if need be. Delivered in an imposing carbon-reinforced stainless steel case, the new ahem technically limited edition timekeeper justifies its impressive price with bold styling and one of the most accurate quartz mechanisms out there. After all, there are not so many divers that are officially certified as chronometers.
Commemorating the 40th anniversary of the world’s first automatic chronograph, Breitling has presented the 2009 rose gold Chrono-matic QP (ref. R29360) limited-edition chronograph that sports a rare “perpetual calendar” complication.
