BREITLING CHRONOMAT 38 SLEEKT
The Breitling Chronomat now sets off to conquer feminine wrists in a new model with a highly contemporary style in a 38 mm diameter and a high-tech tungsten carbide bezel.
Created in 1984 for elite international pilots, the Chronomat perfectly sums up the entire Breitling philosophy. As the brand’s leading model, it embodies a world dedicated to performance, sporting feats and surpassing personal limits.
For all those who share the spirit of aviation, with its blend of sportsmanship and sheer class, Breitling has reinterpreted its grand classic in a new model with a 38 mm diameter suited to all wrists.
Its standout characteristic is a new smooth bezel in tungsten carbide, a high-tech, ultra-hard and scratchproof material whose colour makes a subtle contrast with the polished steel of the case. The black lacquered dial features tone on-tone totalizers.
For a more refined touch, Breitling also offers mother-of-pearl dials with or without diamond hour-markers, as well as an optional diamond-set steel bezel. In terms of performance, the Chronomat 38 SleekT retains all the assets that have made this model an authentic instrument for professionals. The sturdy steel case is water-resistant to 100 m (330 ft).
Readability, with luminescent hands and large hour-markers, as well as a sapphire crystal glare-proofed on both sides. Ergonomics, with a profile moulding the wrist and a metal bracelet that is both supple and comfortable. Precision, with a self-winding chronograph movement chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute).
