Breitling Teams Up With Victoria Beckham To Present An Exclusive Chronomat Collection

Victoria Beckham is the latest collaboration with Breitling, the renowned fashion designer has just presented an exclusive edition of the Chronomat 36 in six variants in steel and gold, whose dial tones are inspired by its spring/summer 2024 collection. 

The new Chronomats have a very similar configuration to the rest of the collection, where the main highlight is the dial colors and their unique details. 

There are three steel variants limited to 400 pieces each, which come with Peppermint, Midnight Blue and Dove Gray dials, and another three variants that come in 18k yellow gold of 100 pieces each, with the same green and blue dials as the steel and another Sand. 

On the outside, the watches once again wear a moderately sized case measuring 36mm in diameter, 10mm thick and 43.30mm lug-to-lug distance that hardly leaves anyone out, featuring an unidirectional bezel matching the case that comes polished and which contrasts with the brushed surfaces of the case, sapphire crystal, pull crown with brand’s signature at 3 o’clock, solid case back double engraved with the name of the British Designer and 100m of water resistance. 

The shades of the dial, although not new to the brand, stand out from the rest as they now come with a matte finish instead of the traditional sunburst effect, and on it we can find the usual layout of applied baton hour markers with lumed tips, pencil hour and minute hands filled with Super-LumiNova, date window with white background at 6 o’clock, and two new features, a central seconds hand that no longer comes with an arrow-shaped tip taking the shape of a needle and with the counterweight with the initials ‘VB’ by Victoria Beckham instead of Breitling’s traditional ‘B’. The other novelty is the ‘Chronomat’ inscription disappears at 6 o’clock, giving way to the inscriptions ‘One Of 400’ or ‘One Of 100’, whether they are steel or gold variants, in a clear allusion to its limited edition. 

Inside, everything is the same, operating the Breitling 10 automatic movement which is COSC certified, reaching 28,800 Vph and offering up to 42 hours of power reserve. 

As is also tradition in the collection, the new Chronomat’s come with the Rouleaux bracelet in the same material as the case, mainly with a brushed finish and polished connection links. Finally, it should also be noted that the bracelet comes with a folding clasp with Victoria Beckham’s signature that replaces the brand’s logo. 

The watches are priced at €5,500 for the blue and green steel versions, €5,800 for the gray version as it adds lab-grown diamonds on the dial, and €29,500 for the three gold editions.
