Breitling launches Chronomat 38 SleekT for women
July 30, 2015: In 30 years, the Breitling Chronomat has asserted itself as the ultimate aviator’s chronograph. It now has a new model with a highly contemporary style in a 38 mm diameter and a high-tech tungsten carbide bezel for women.
Created in 1984 for elite international pilots, the Chronomat perfectly sums up the Breitling philosophy. In changing size, the Chronomat has also changed face by adopting a sleeker style. Its standout characteristic is a new smooth bezel in tungsten carbide, a high-tech, ultra-hard and scratchproof material whose color makes a subtle contrast with the polished steel of the case.
The black lacquered dial features tone-on-tone totalizers. For a more refined touch, Breitling also offers mother-of-pearl dials with or without diamond hour-markers, as well as an optional diamond-set steel bezel. In terms of performance, the Chronomat 38 SleekT retains all the assets that have made this model an authentic instrument for professionals.
The sturdy steel case is water-resistant to 100 m (330 ft). Luminescent hands and large hour-markers make readability easy. The sapphire crystal is glare proofed on both sides. The metal bracelet is comfortable. The selfwinding chronograph movement chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute) is precise.
