Breitling Chronomat B01 42 Limited Edition UK-Exclusive 

Breitling has revealed an understated yet striking new Chronomat, available in a limited run of 250 pieces exclusively for the UK market. This monochromatic marvel fulfills the desires of many enthusiasts that longed to see Breitling's iconic timepiece in a more subdued palette. While other color options and accents may exude more style, there's a comforting appeal to the timeless combination of a black dial and steel case. Muted tones highlight the purity of the design, allowing it to shine without distractions. Let’s take a closer look.The 42 mm diameter case with a thickness of 15.1mm is made of stainless-steel with an overall brushed finish on the surfaces and casebands, while contrasting with the polished bevels. Mounted to the case is a unidirectional ratcheted rotating steel bezel with the quarter numerals 15, 30, and 45 engraved and filled with black font, contributing to a sleek aesthetic. As Breitling emphasizes, "This versatile sports watch seamlessly transitions across Breitling's domains of air, land, and sea."On the flipside is a sapphire exhibition caseback that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. It showcases several jewels, gears, and an oscillating weight with a gilt Breitling logo. Also engraved along the periphery is “UK LIMITED EDITION” and “ONE OF 250”.It comes equipped with two pushers to activate the chronograph functions, while tucked between them are subtle crown guards, and the “onion” crown, which is a classic Chronomat feature, named for its fluted-dome shape that allows for easy adjustments. All topped by a cambered sapphire crystal is glareproofed on both sides. Water-resistance can reach up to 200 meters (660 feet).Time is exhibited on a black dial with rectangular rhodium applied hour indices, followed by a ring of white printed minutes/seconds markers. Along a sloped flange is a black chapter ring that contains a tachymeter scale printed in white.It features three snailed anthracite sub-dials with gray colored hands: a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, a 12-hour counter that includes a date aperture at 6 o’clock, and a sub-seconds at the 9 o’clock position.In a bold move, the new UK limited edition omits the usual striking red accents found in the standard range. Instead, Breitling has opted for a matte white finish on the chronograph seconds hand and white numerals for the decimal scale on the rehaut. The anthracite sub-dials provide subtle contrast against the lacquered black dial, blending harmoniously while maintaining excellent readability.The chrono hand features a counterweight shaped as the Breitling “B” logo. The sword shaped central hour/minute hands and baton-style hour indices have all been fitted with a luminescent filling for an enhanced legibility.
