Mens Designer Watch: Breitling Chronomat GMT
Breitling prides itself as being the makers of instruments for professionals, which reflects its heritage as suppliers of timekeeping devices for the aviation industry before it ventured into the consumer market.
With this tradition in mind, Breitling’s new Chronomat GMT lets you adjust instantly to the time and date on your arrival while maintaining a 24-hour home-time display without losing any precision in counting the minutes. Equipped with the new Breitling Caliber 04, entirely developed and produced within the company workshops, the Chronomat GMT is a special chronograph offering a smoothly functional dual timezone system.
The thing we sometimes find uncomfortable with Breitling is the design of the watches as we think it is too bulky but we are sure the style has its ardent followers. Equipped with two central hour hands, the first matches the minute hand and runs over a 12-hour scale, while the second is tipped with a red triangle and runs in 24-hour mode. When the user is in his home country, the two hour hands move in a perfectly synchronized manner.
Entirely made in Switzerland, the Chronomat GMT has teamed with a choice of various straps and bracelets offering a variety of styles and uses: the classic touch of Barenia or crocodile leather, the sporty spirit of rubber straps, and the sturdy steel Pilot bracelet.
