This year, along with redesigns for numerous models, Breitling introduced two new versions of the Chronomat B01 Chronograph 44.

Apart from the pushers, crown, and tabs on the bezel, everything is completely satin-brushed, for a more understated look. And there are two new dial color combinations: blackeye blue and blackeye gray.

The case measures 44 mm x 16.95 mm, feature a ratcheted unidirectional rotating bezel, a screwed caseback, and screw-down crown. The water-resistance rating is an impressive 500 meters.

Inside is the automatic Breitling B01 caliber which beats at 4Hz, measures 30 mm x 7.2 mm, has 346 components, 47 jewels, a 70-hour power reserve, and is a COSC-certified chronometer.

There is a not a whole lot new here, but I personally like the black on blue dial, and the satin-brushed matte finish is a nice change, for a company that’s practically known for highly polishing every case.

Retail for on a steel bracelet is $8,720. There is also an option for a blue, black or gray alligator strap for $8,150.
