Chronomatic Series - Chrono-Matic LE 24H

Description

This Chrono-matic design is further enhanced by the original 24-hour display, a brand specialty stemming from its experience in space explorations during the early 1960s. On this model, the hour hand revolves around the dial in 24 hours, instead of 12 as seen on traditional watch displays. The Chrono-Matic 24H also features a Flyback mechanism. This additional function serves to launch successive timing operations without needing to stop, reset and restart the chronograph.

The dial configuration, with subdials at 9 and 3 o'clock and calendar at 6 o'clock, is also faithful to the original. Governed by the same concern for authenticity, the Chrono-Matic carries the Breitling signature topped with the initial B, the brand symbol of that era. The Chrono-matic also has a slide-rule bezel, which drives a pinion and an arbor acting on the inner bezel. The Chrono-Matic is powered by 38-jewel Breitling Caliber 22LC, officially chronometer-certified by the COSC, like all movements driving Breitling wrist instruments.

This Chrono-matic was limited to 1000 peices. 250 peices were also produced in rose gold an 12Hour dials.
