2020 Breitling Chronomat B01 42 with Rouleaux Bracelet

Post by Racer-X » April 17th 2020, 1:25am

"The name “Chronomat” can refer to multiple watches at Breitling and holds a significant place in the brand’s history. Of course, the first watch to bear this name was a 1940 Chronograph, which was one of the first watches with a slide-rule bezel. However, for most watch enthusiasts the name Chronomat refers to an icon of the 1980s, to one of Breitling’s most powerful designs. And today, the brand is bringing it back with an eye-catching case, the signature Rouleaux bracelet and several limited editions, including the “Frecce Tricolori”. Meet the 2020 Breitling Chronomat B01 42 Collection."

Odd as it might sound, I really like the looks of it. Could be because it looks so much better than the Chronomats from the last two decades.
The panda version (pictured in the original post) seems like the best of the new model - the inverse panda is a bit idiotic, as some genius thought it fit to use pale silver hands on pale silver subdials, making the bloody thing even less legible than the registers on the Daytona.
You cannot explain away a wantonly immoral act, because you think that it is connected to some higher purpose.

Now that one I could live with very easily !! Love that bracelet and who really needs to be able to see what time it is anyway.

That's a beauty! I love everything about it but the crown. Just doesn't seem to match therest of the watch....but I'd still take it.
Looking forward to your purchase and review.



Oh, and here is another one of those Breitling citrus crowns and so far no ridicule from the unwashed (though they could be laughing at me behind my back)
