Breitling’s men’s models announce the top 5 models you care about

Founded in 1884, Breitling has made a name for itself as a prestigious manufacturer of pilot’s watches. The company, especially in recent years, has attracted the attention of many enthusiasts by paying homage to the classics of the past while developing sophisticated collections that are modern and sophisticated.

In addition to the iconic Navitimer and Chronomat chronographs, the company is pleased to announce the top five sales figures for men’s models from its extensive lineup, including the highly waterproof Superocean and the elegant Premier.

5th place: Superocean Heritage B20 Automatic 42 Japan Limited

In fifth place is the Superocean Heritage B20 Automatic 42 Japan Limited. The “Superocean Heritage” is a collection with a design inspired by the first “Superocean”, a diver’s watch that appeared in the 1950s, and features an arrow-shaped hour hand and a simple round case without a crown guard.

Breitling Popularity Ranking

Breitling Superocean Heritage B20 Automatic 42 Japan Limited
The ice blue dial is an elegant Japan limited model. The simple design, inspired by the original “Super Ocean”, will be active both on and off.
Automatic (Cal. B20). 26 stones. 28,800 vibrations per hour. Power reserve about 70 hours. SS case (diameter 42 mm, thickness 14.3 mm). 200m water resistance. Limited to Japan. 819,500 yen (tax included).

This lineup, which is a limited edition model in Japan, combines an ice blue dial with a black ceramic bezel insert to create a refreshing impression.

The movement is a Caliber B20 based on the Cal. MT5612 supplied by Kenissi, a Tudor subsidiary. As a result, it has acquired the high accuracy of a C.O.S.C. certified chronometer, excellent impact resistance, and a power reserve of about 70 hours. Tudor and Breitling have a cooperative relationship with each other to supply each other’s movements, with Breitling supplying Tudor with the Cal. 01 automatic chronograph movement.

4th Place: Super Chronomat B01 44 Japan Edition

The Super Chronomat is based on Breitling’s flagship Chronomat, with more massive elements. The bezel, push buttons, and crown are made of ceramic material, and it has a powerful case with a diameter of 44 mm.

Breitling Popularity Ranking

Breitling Super Chronomat B01 44 Japan Edition
The powerful design of the “Super Chronomat” is summarized in an elegant coloring. The chronograph second hand and flange are accented with red.
Automatic (Cal.01). 47 stones. 28,800 vibrations per hour. Power reserve about 70 hours. SS case (diameter 44 mm, thickness 14.4 mm). 200m water resistance. Limited to Japan. 1,270,500 yen (tax included).

In the “Super Chronomat B01 44 Japan Edition” selected this time, these ceramic parts, dial, and rubber strap are unified in white, giving it both strength and elegance.

The fact that it is all-white but does not give a blurry impression is probably due to the presence of the chronograph seconds hand in the center painted in red and the 1/100 scale of the flange. The combination of white and red is reminiscent of the Japanese flag and gives a faint sense of Japan exclusiveness. The case, which contrasts with the glossy ceramic parts and is based on a satin finish, also brings sharpness to the whole.

The movement is a caliber 01 of the company’s own mechanical automatic chronograph. It has high accuracy and durability, and is easy to maintain.

3rd place: Navitimer B01 Chronograph 41 Japan Edition

From the Navitimer Collection, which is twinned with the Chronomat, the “Navitimer B01 Chronograph 41 Japan Edition” is ranked. This is a Japan limited model with a white mother-of-pearl dial. Because mother-of-pearl is a natural material, each piece has a different expression. You should be able to feel more attached to it as your own one.

Breitling Popularity Ranking

Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph 41 Japan Edition
The mother-of-pearl dial adds elegance to the Japan limited edition model of the Navitimer B01 Chronograph 41. The anthracite-colored in-dial and red-gold-colored dial give a warm impression.
Automatic (Cal.01). 47 stones. 28,800 vibrations per hour. Power reserve about 70 hours. SS case (diameter 41 mm, thickness 13.6 mm). Water resistant to 3 ATM. Limited to Japan. 1,353,000 yen (tax included).

The Navitimer has its origins in professional pilot’s watches. In this work, while retaining the characteristics of functions such as the rotation slide rule and chronograph, the dressy taste is also strengthened. This is strongly evoked by the anthracite-coloured in-dial and the red-gold-coloured hands and indexes, combined with a mother-of-pearl dial that sparkles in the light. The polished pilot bracelet also shimmers with every movement of the wrist. From the see-through back, it is possible to appreciate the reliable in-house movement, the Cal.01.

2nd Place: Chronomat B01 42 Japan Edition

In second place is the Chronomat B01 42 Japan Edition. In 2020, the Chronomat was relaunched as an elegant sports watch that renews its rugged image. This work is a model that allows you to fully enjoy its charm.

Breitling Popularity Ranking

Breitling Chronomat B01 42 Japan Edition
One with a distinctive black mother-of-pearl dial. The company often uses mother-of-pearl dials as Japan limited models, all of which have been well received. This game is one of those options that you can’t go wrong with.
Automatic (Cal.01). 47 stones. 28,800 vibrations per hour. Power reserve about 70 hours. SS case (diameter 42 mm, thickness 15.1 mm). 200m water resistance. Limited to Japan. 1,386,000 yen (tax included).

This work, which is sold exclusively in Japan, uses a black mother-of-pearl dial that further enhances the elegance of the current chronomat. At first glance, it looks like a sporty black dial, but depending on how the light hits it, it sometimes shines intricately. The black-colored in-dial has a circle-shaped groove that brings a sense of condensation to the dial and improves visibility.

The 42 mm diameter case is equipped with the Rouleau bracelet, which symbolizes the first generation Chronomat, and provides a smooth fit. In addition to the chronograph with a 12-hour totalizer, it also has outstanding functionality such as a unidirectional rotating bezel that can measure elapsed time, a date display, and water resistance to 200 meters. It is powered by the company’s flagship mechanical automatic movement, the Cal.01.

1st place: Navitimer B01 Chronograph 43

And the first place is the “Navitimer B01 Chronograph 43”. The Japan limited model has continued so far, but this work is a regular model that will be developed globally. Looking back at the rankings, the two most iconic collections of the company, the Chronomat and the Navitimer, were in a fierce battle.

Breitling Popularity Ranking

Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph 43
This is the only one of the top 5 that is not a Japan limited model. The 43mm diameter case gives it the feel of a pilot’s watch, but the refreshing ice blue dial neutralizes its excessive ruggedness.
Automatic (Cal.01). 47 stones. 28,800 vibrations per hour. Power reserve about 70 hours. SS case (diameter 43 mm, thickness 13.6 mm). Water resistant to 3 ATM. 1,243,000 yen (tax included).

In this work, a powerful 43mm diameter case is used to improve the visibility, which is essential for pilot’s watches. The biggest feature is the ice blue dial, which gives a refreshing impression.

In 22 years, celebrating its 70th anniversary, the Navitimer has undergone a steady update, albeit without major design changes. At 12 o’clock, the AOPA logo was reinstated, the tachymeter around the dial was eliminated, and the case and parts of the bracelet were finished with a satin finish, giving the collection a more sophisticated look. In addition, colorful dial variations such as blue, green, and salmon have been added, providing a wide range of choices.

From its birth to the present, the Navitimer has continued to evolve without major changes, and it is a model worthy of the company’s history and innovation.
