Breitling Frecce Tricolori Chronomat 44 Limited Edition Watch

Frecce Triclori is the Italian Air Force’s aerobatics team. A Grenchen based Swiss watch maker offered a special edition watch with the model name Chronomat 44 for these aerobats. You can clearly see the logo of the aerobats etched on the watch. Again, you can see the silhouette of a formation of Aermacchi airplanes on the watch’s case back. In addition to the watches created for the air force pilots, Breitling is releasing a limited edition watch with the B 01 automatic caliber watch movement. They are only launching 1000 watches of the series for the general public.

Breitling Frecce Tricolori watch has some of the best features available in the market. It is very durable in its construction and can resist water up to a depth of 500 meters. The dimensions of the watch are 44 mm by 16.75 mm. The bezel as well as case of the model is created with stainless steel with peculiar finishes of its own; satin finish and polished finish at certain sections. A rubber strap with the brand name embossed on it is one of the available options to be chosen for the model.

The famous Swiss watch brand and the aerobats of the Italian Air Force have been working together throughout the past three decades. The current version of the watch is the latest and the best result of their collaboration. In fact, the latest model of the watch is based on the very first model that was created by Breitling for the aerobats back in 1984. This is the reason why the watch is having a black face. At the same time, not everything is the same among both these models of watches. The new watch has a different lay out as well as sub dial color schemes than the original one. They feature red hands on silver counters. Again, the logo of the aerobats is displayed on the dial in the form of arrows in the color of Italian flags. In addition to this, the name of the team, PAN Frecce Tricolori of the Italian team is etched at the top of the watch face.

Breitling is a proud brand from Grenchen and is actively involved in providing the best amenities for the Italian Air Force pilots in serving their country. The Chronomat series of the watchmaker is particularly related to the Italian aerobats. In addition to wearing the watches from the firm, these aerobats were also involved in the creation of these gadgets in the Chronomat series.

When the quartz watch revolution hit the industry, the disastrous effects of the situation affected the Chronomat model of watch designing. The Navitimer watch model was one of the unique models that were part of the new revolution. This model arrived in to the scene in the year 1970 and was based on quartz principle and was without the chronograph feature. Before that, a chronograph complication was an essential aspect of watches. Later, Breitling introduced a limited edition version of the watch that displayed the Frecce Tricolori logo on its dial. As the members of design team, the aerobatic members helped the firm in crafting this style statement.
