Breitling continues to reach out to its past, through the Superocean Heritage watch we showed you in one of our previous entries, and now through a new version of the vaunted vintage Replica Breitling Chrono-Matic 49 – the watch that, arguably, established the automatic chronograph movement.
The look-and-feel of this piece clearly celebrates the Breitling replica watches of the 1960s and 1970s, with hard angular lines, but the size is wholly contemporary at a whopping 49mm. The pushers and crown immediately link the watch to its historic predecessor.
The Replica Breitling Chrono-Matic 49 movement – COSC-certified as usual – is Breitling caliber 14 and does not represent a new chronograph movement from the brand. The case is available in stainless steel and 18kt rose gold, which is limited to 500 pieces.
