Breitling Chrono-Matic 49 Chronograph Ref. A14360 - SOLD
Breitling's Chrono-Matic was originally released to show off the newly developed Caliber 11 automatic chronograph movement in the 70s as a pilot's watch, with an integrated slide rule bezel and bright accents with great lume for legibility.
Breitling chose to re-release the Chrono-Matic in 2015, keeping the spirit of the original model but with modern tech, like the new Breitling caliber 14 chronometer movement and modern materials. The watch keeps to its roots with large lumed indices for maximum visibilty, a tough and accurateautomatic chronograph movement, and internal rotating slide rule bezel housed inside a chunky steel case, remaining true to its heritage while stepping into the 21st century.
This Chrono-Matic, reference A14360, is in excellent condition with only very light signs of wear, still with the original protective sticker on the caseback. It comes complete with inner and outer boxes, chronometer certification papers, booklets, and two straps, a mesh bracelet and a rubber strap.
