Breitling Windrider Chronomat B01 Men’s Watch Review

1 Comment

Launched in the summer of 2009, celebrating hundred and twenty five wonderful years of Breitling timepieces is Breitling Windrider Chronomat B01. No wonder then, this latest chronograph from the aviation watch makers further pushes the already so high a bar that Breitling has set over these long winding years.

Breitling Windrider Chronomat B01 is indeed the first watch from Breitling to use their landmark B01 calibre in-house movement; designed as well as crafted 100% in the brand workshop.

The self winding chronograph movement incorporates a column-wheel switching mechanism and a vertical clutch, the most important touchstones of a well made chronograph.

The Breitling Windrider Chronomat B01 measures 43.5mm in diameter and is available in four different versions, all steel, two tone, steel with a gold bezel, and solid 18K rose/white gold. A range of 18 different dials are also at the discerning buyer’s disposal. The unidirectional rotating bezel has engraved numerals for excellent readability and turns smoothly with 240 teeth. The sapphire crystal is anti-reflective on both sides. Steel and two-tone models are water resistant to 500 meters, while the all-gold model to 100 meters.

In a nutshell, Breitling Windrider Chronomat B01 perfectly captures the entire philosophy of the Breitling brand and embodies its hundred and twenty five years of hard work and dedication.
