Lights, camera, double debut: we’re thrilled to present Breitling’s new Spotlight Squad as we launch our line of Chronomat 36 and 32 watches – for women of purpose, action, and style.
"For this new collection, Breitling has been inspired by the Breitling woman herself, who shapes the #SQUADONAMISSION campaign: a woman of purpose, action, and style who’s at the top of her game,” says Breitling CEO Georges Kern.
Ready for any Mission
With its commitment to core values and innovation, Breitling is also about pushing boundaries, whether it is high above the clouds, on the ground, or deep below the ocean waves. As versatile and attractive as the Spotlight Squad, its latest collection – the Chronomat 36 and 32 series – takes women wherever they want to go.
Breitling’s first-ever Chronomat designed for women is suitable for any mission. While its roots are in the 1980s, this forward-looking timepiece is dedicated to innovative women of today who are reshaping attitudes and challenging stereotypes.
Sporty yet elegant, this modern-retro-inspired watch easily takes its wearer from business meeting to the beach – and everywhere in between. It symbolizes competence and effortless style.
Everyday Luxury in Two Sizes and many Faces
The stunning watches in the Chronomat for Women range feature Breitling’s iconic Rouleaux bracelet with a butterfly clasp, which is as robust as it is elegant. Like all Breitling watches, the chronometers are COSC-certified – an independent confirmation of their Swiss precision. Swimmers, surfers, divers, and even bathtub mermaids will appreciate their 100-meter water resistance.
In terms of finish, these timepieces are nearly as diverse as the women on the Spotlight Squad. Along with the choice of sizes (36 mm Automatic and 32 mm SuperQuartz™), they are also available in an array of metal cases: cool stainless steel, goes-with-everything bicolor, or luxe 18 k red gold. Women craving extra sparkle can opt for diamond-set bezels and indexes.
The Chronomat Automatic 36 is powered by the Breitling Caliber 10 with a reserve of about 42 hours. There are ten versions to choose from, with special lacquered dials in white, pale green, midnight blue, or copper. The Chronomat 32 runs on the Breitling Caliber 77 and has a battery life of three to four years. It comes in seven versions, with white or midnight blue dials.
A Nod to Tradition
Since the 1940s, Breitling has created a variety of dedicated women’s models. There was the delicate ladies’ TransOcean, called the “most wonderful expression of Breitling precision” back in 1957. The Lady J made a bold statement in the 1990s. Then the Galactic brought a “blend of refined luxury and uncompromising technical sophistication” in 2010. More recent women’s timepieces include the iconic Navitimer 35 and 38 and the sporty Superocean 36.
The original 1984 Chronomat helped signal a rebirth of the Swiss watch industry, and it has inspired many more timepieces over the past four decades – including women’s models. Today, the modern-retro watches of the Chronomat 36 and 32 collection shine the spotlight on confident and versatile women.
