Visual and technical features

With the Chronomat Evolution, Breitling set the standard for masculine design, which would go on to become the “design du jour”. The lugs are no longer straight as in the old models, but short and stocky, giving the case more of a presence on the wrist. The case itself is an oversized design with a width of 44 mm and a thickness of 17 mm, which definitely makes an impression. The bezel is set with 2-carat diamonds all round, which gives it the necessary elegance without being over the top. Like all modern Breitling models, the bezel of the Chronomat Evolution is screwed in, making it more durable and shock resistant.

The watch is water-resistant up to 30 bar and is driven by the Breitling 13 calibre, which is based on the Valjoux 7750. Another highlight lies in the pilot style bracelet, which has been increased from 18 to 22 mm to now be 20 to 22 mm wide. It is assembled from 120 handmade parts, thus explaining the high price of up to €900.

Models and prices of the Breitling Chronomat Evolution

  • Let's get started with a little extravagance: the Chronomat Evolution is also available in bicolour versions in yellow gold and steel, making it a real eye-catcher with its golden tabs, pushers and totalisers. Coming in at almost 44 mm, the model (Ref. B1335611.G570) costs around €3,400 and is very comfortable to wear, while the impressive 47 mm model (Ref. B13356) costs €4,150 is definitely not made for small wrists.

  • The Chronomat Evolution (Ref. A13356) showcases a 42 mm stainless steel case and the popular stainless steel pilot strap as well as the chronograph function that is so characteristic of the series. In addition, those who believe this is the watch for them will enjoy the sparkle of diamond indices, giving the A13356 a glamorous appearance. Nevertheless, this does not detract from the sporty character of the Evolution in the slightest, but rather it emphasises the exclusivity of the series. For a price of €5,060, you can see just how effective this watch is for yourself.

  • If you appreciate the extraordinary and want to stand out from the crowd, then you should check out the Chronomat Evolution (Ref. A13356) with its distinctive red dial. This model is an offbeat style but burns brightly through the intense red of the dial. Apart from its strong colour, this pilot's watch, which costs €2,520, also features a 43.7 mm stainless steel case, an automatic calibre and Arabic numerals.

  • The words “Breitling” and “understatement” are rarely mentioned together in the same sentence. For the Chronomat Evolution (Ref. J13356) however, this seems to be the case. At first glance, this model is a common Breitling pilot's watch with a leather strap. Only on closer inspection does the exclusive character of this model reveal itself. Instead of the usual stainless steel, the case and bezel here are made of enchanting white gold. As quality comes at a price, you will have to budget around €9,660 for this watch.

  • Less modest than the previous model, but by no means less breath-taking, the Chronomat Evolution (Ref. H13356) is truly exclusive. On a leather strap with a yellow gold case and Roman numeral indices on a white dial, this model definitely stands out. Instead of being perceived as “ostentatious” though, this model actually radiates a certain warmth.

  • If you prefer something that shimmers, you can also check out the Ref. A13356 with diamonds. From the bracelet and bezel to the mother-of-pearl dial, this model sparkles and lures you in seductively, promising nothing but exquisite luxury. Pre-owned, it is currently available from €8,700.

  • The Chronomat Evolution is an absolute classic and even more so in this available Reverse Panda Look model. The stainless-steel bezel is also set with diamonds and the model comes with a black leather strap. This Chronomat Evolution is currently available at Watchmaster from €5,370.

The history of the collection

What many Breitling fans don't know is that the Chronomat actually sold better than the legendary Navitimer for a long time. This fact is probably less well known as the Chronomat series has undergone countless name changes – one of which made it the Breitling Chronomat Evolution.

From 1940 to 1978, the Chronomat was mainly known for its slide rule bezel and it was thus predominantly aimed at engineers, mathematicians and scientists. In its early years, the Chronomat's philosophy focused primarily on suitability for everyday use and flexibility. Affected by the quartz crisis, Breitling had to temporarily cease production in 1978, before the Chronomat was finally able to celebrate its comeback as a completely new watch in 1984. This was followed by the well-known additions, embellishments and design changes, before the Chronomat Evolution kickstarted the latest instalment in the series. It was officially presented at Baselworld 2004, where it surprised the masses with a design that attempted to combine a diver's and pilot's watch. The clear layout and readability of the dial as well as the chronograph are hallmarks of a pilot's watch, while the unidirectional rotating bezel and water resistance up to 300 metres also established the model as a versatile diving watch.

The Chronomat Evolution became a bestseller and further strengthened Breitling's position in the luxury watch market. In 2008, the series was renamed again simply as the Chronomat, which was produced until 2011. It was called the Chronomat Calibre 13, which, like the Evolution, was equipped with Breitling's first in-house Breitling 13 movement. Over time this has also been replaced by the B01 movement in the newer models.

  • Breitling is best known for its pilot's watches and has now conquered the streets as well as the skies thanks to its collaboration with Bentley.

They all pay homage to Bentley's racing success or the most famous Bentley Boys with the Bentley Barnato.

  • The Avenger Blackbird was first designed as a spin-off of the Chronomat, which has always primarily been seen as a functional watch for pilots.
