Breitling Chronomat 44 Raven

Equipped with the Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01, the Chronomat 44 Raven special series reinvents the pilot’s chronograph in an original look dedicated to performance.

Since its launch in 1984, the Chronomat has established itself as the reference among mechanical chronographs. A perfect embodiment of the Breitling philosophy, it combines a strong, unique and quintessential design with all the performances of an authentic “instrument for professionals”: precision, sturdiness, readability, functionality, as well as outstanding water resistance.

This exceptional model is now issued in a special series accentuating its technical, masculine style. The satin-brushed steel case is entirely clad in black thanks to a high-resistance carbon based coating matching the rubber strap. The unidirectional rotating bezel features orange rubber inlaid numerals creating a powerful and ultra-legible contrast. The same bright orange touches appear on the inner bezel, the chronograph seconds hand as well as the counter pointers.

Visible through a transparent caseback, Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01 also springs a surprise with its black oscillating weight enhanced with orange markings.

The Chronomat 44 Raven special series is equipped with a self winding movement chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), the highest benchmark in terms of reliability and precision.
