Last week Breitling launched a webcast where it announced through its CEO Georges Kern some news, the presentation also featured the presence of some public figures who are ambassadors for the brand, namely Charlize Theron, Misty Copeland and Yao Chen, who had the opportunity to talk about the experience with the brand and the latest models introduced within the Chronomat collection.
We remind you that in June the new Chronomat was released which we talked about in another article and if you want to know more you can read it here.
Breitling thus announced new models of the Chronomat collection intended for a “female” audience, in total 17 new watches, of which 10 with 36mm in diameter and 7 with 32mm.
The options are wide, especially in the 36 mm variant, where we can find 4 colour options on the dial, in white, green (mint), blue and copper, but the options do not stop there in terms of the material of the case are three options, in steel (6 models), two tones (3 models) and gold (1 model), the other options are on the dial, in addition to the standard, there are options with diamonds on the indexes and there are other options that accumulate the diamonds on the indexes and also on the bezel. In terms of movement, the Chronomat 36mm is equipped with the Caliber B10 movement (ETA 2892) and prices vary between € 4,400 and € 24,350.
Regarding the 32 mm variant, the options are more moderate, starting with only two option colours on the dial, one in blue and the other six in white, the other options are exactly the same offered on the 36 mm variant, steel case (4 models), two tones (2 models) and gold (1 model), in addition to the basic dial, there is also the possibility of diamonds in the indexes and another option that accumulates diamonds in the index and bezel. These 32 mm models are equipped with the Caliber B77 Superquartz movement and prices vary between € 3,600 and € 19,450.
Final considerations, we always welcome when brands choose to widen the range of options for their customers, adding two sizes to a line that had only 42 mm until now seems to be the right choice when many consumers are not comfortable with wearing watches so big on the wrist and as you may have noticed and despite the connotation of female models attributed to the two new sizes, we see as valid options some of the models in 36 mm also for the male audience.
