The original Chronomat B01, the one that was 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. See more details after the jump.
In a nutshell, the 2009 Breitling Chronomat B01 Chronograph rocks. Although some find combinations of steel and gold (especially rose gold) a bit distasteful, this version features just the right mix of two metals that make it look dressy and even elegant without even a hint of the usual pretense.
