Breitling introduces a new flagship, the Chronomat 01 Limited Edition. Breitling debuted the Chronomat 01 with the Caliber 01 manufacture movement, developed and produced at the brand’s workshops on www.nblug.co.uk. Now Breitling replica watches the ante with limited steel and red gold versions. Find prices and wallpaper inside.
The Chronomat 01 Limited Edition will be produced in a series 2,000 pieces in steel and 200 in red gold, both on bracelets, each piece with its individual number engraved on the side of the case at 9 o’clock. The case is also distinguished by subtle contrasted finishing – satin-brushed on the top and polished on the sides. Both the steel and gold versions feature a black dial adorned with applied hour-markers. Unlike the standard Chronomat 01 models which have solid casebacks, the Limited Edition models offer transparent sapphire crystal casebacks, providing optimal views of the in-house chronograph movement.
Breitling will introduce special all-white “Ice” versions of the the Bentley GT and Bentley GT Racing chronographs. These chronographs, already distinguished by their size, which is more compact than the other Breitling for Bentley models making them suited to all wrists, now also offer a distinctive and instantly-identifiable look.

This new look couples an Ice White dial – an exclusive Bentley livery color – with a rubber strap in the same shade. The dials, enhanced by rimmed counters, evoke the dashboards of Bentley Grand Tourers. The bezel with its knurled motif is reminiscent of the marque’s control buttons. The “chassis” of the Bentley GT Ice chronograph has a steel case with an all-polished finish, while the Bentley GT Racing Ice version is distinguished by finishes alternating between satin-brushed upper surfaces and polished sides, and its caseback bears a medallion with the outline of the famous Bentley Continental GT, a quintessential powerful grand tourer.
Both watches are driven by the Breitling replica, chronometer-certified by the COSC and equipped with a calendar displaying the day and date through a large twin aperture at 3 o’clock. The bidirectional rotating bezel serves to activate the “variable tachometer”, an exclusive Breitling feature. When used in conjunction with the chronograph, this system enables the user to measure mean speed whatever the time elapsed, the distance covered or the speed reached.
