Chronomatic 49

A tribute to a pioneer, a tribute to an era. Breitling, the company that invented the first self-winding chronograph movement in 1969, is now reviving one of the most celebrated models in its history – and probably in the history of Swiss watchmaking. The 2008 version of the legendary Chrono-Matic 49 boasts angular, taut lines that are inspired by the original’s generous size and sixties-seventies look. A classic vintage model with a contemporary air, on land, on sea and in the skies.
