Breitling has revealed the latest version of a longtime pilot’s favorite, the Cheap Breitling Chronomat B01 Chronograph 44 Watches. At first glance, we can see that the changes here are subtle but contribute to a newer and more subdued look for this big 44mm watch. Most notably, Breitling has opted for a cool brushed finish for the stainless steel case while simplifying the dial treatment.
Even with its 44mm case, I’ve always been attracted to the Chronomat and when I caught wind of the new models being revealed, I feared opening a press release filled with countless variations and color combinations plus different case materials blended into the mix. Thankfully, Cheap Breitling Replica kept things basic and for me, these are the most attractive color options I’ve ever seen for the Chronomat. Something never really sat well with me whenever coming across the the previous, highly-polished Chronomats and I think it had something to do with the way the watches aged.
If I had to complain about anything at this point, it would be the tachymeter scale. It’s minor, I know, but I can’t help but wonder why so many brands find it necessary when the feature is practically useless in the Breitling Replica Watches day-to-day of most wearers. Logging hours in your Piper J-3? At most, you’ll mess around with the chronograph function to time your holding patterns – not recommended, but that’s it.
Personally these new approaches to the Chronomat are enough to put the Fake Breitling Watches back on my radar and remedy the option paralysis I experience whenever sifting through Breitling’s catalog. The shinier and more eccentric variants are still available on Breitling’s site if that’s still your thing but personally, I’m happy to see the Breitling Chronomat B01 Chronograph 44 in its simplified form.
