Replica Breitling Chronomat Watch
When watchmakers introduced the world's first digital watch in the 1980s, we fell in love with the thin, light and cheap technology. Breitling, like many other watchmakers, took a serious hit from the developments, and the company founded in 1884 was sold nearly a century later to a new owner, Ernest Schneider in 1979.
The Breitling Chronomat, however, began its life in the 1940s, and performed very well in sales, enough to have many models under the Chronomat series, and by the 1960s, Breitling had created the world's first automatic chronograph. It was a technological feat that was soon overpowered by the entry of digital watches.

The Second Life of Breitling Chronomat Replica
Under new ownership and new management, Breitling still maintained the same quality and standards. But it took the company five more years before the rebirth of the Breitling Chronomat, now the true aviator's watch.
The biggest problem of digital watches was that while they were incredibly cheap when compared to Swiss watches, the design of the watch had to incorporate the dull gray background of an LCD, with the same gray lights that uniquely identify electronic watches. Compared to Breitling or any other Swiss-made watch, artistically, electronic watches had much less aesthetic value.
In order to take advantage of the innate design advantage of the Breitling Chronomat over that of electronic watches, watch-making at Breitling turned into an art form. It was a risk, but it would be only a matter of time before the cheaper alternative of electronic watches would give way to aesthetics. And that was what Breitling was counting on.
The Art of Breitling Chronomat Replica Watch-making
Ignore the price tag and take a look at a Breitling Chronomat and compare it with a very high-end electronic watch. The first and only difference is the design. Breitling even turned to jewelry watches in order to enhance and expound the difference – something that electronic watches have failed to incorporate into their designs.
And the price tag, which was the biggest problem Breitling had with the cheaper competition, Breitling turned also into an advantage. While the price difference would definitely always be to the advantage of the lower-priced electronic watch, what Breitling did was to further widen the gap. Adding jewelry was one thing, another was the expensive aviation functions that the Breitling Chronomat contained in its casing.
Several models of the Chronomat eventually had built-in features to further attract its market. There is a model of the Chronomat that showed moon phases as they happened. Water resistant watches were made, as well as the rotating bezel that doubled as a timing marker as well as protection to the crystal covering.
Breitling Chronomat Replica - The Aesthetics
And today, again because of the technology, electronic watches are losing their appeal. There are many electronic gadgets out there that no longer contain that dull grey and black signature of electronic watches. And aesthetics are also making its way again, even in the digital age.
And if it is the design of the Breitling Chronomat that is appealing, and not the other experimental functions Breitling added to it, or the jewelry to further aid the Breitling design, perhaps a replica Breitling Chronomat is what you are looking for. Those designs made it through the 1980s without a scratch, and are truly designs of art. If you don’t want to spend a fortune for a designer watch, you are better off shopping for Breitling Chronomat knockoff.
