Luxury Swiss watchmaker, Breitling, has unveiled its new Super Chronomat Collection that sought inspiration from a retro limited edition model to inform the new designs. Breitling turned back to its 1980s Frecce Tricolore edition, created for top guns of the Italian Air Force’s aerobatic fleet. Now, using modern materials and tech, the new Super Chronomat Collection is comprised of several all-purpose sports watches that are elegant enough for evening wear, as well.

The Super Chronomat B01 44 comes in three versions. Breitling has encased two in stainless steel with blue or black dial-and-bezel combinations. The third is a rich brown dial-and-bezel combination with a case in 18k red gold. All feature contrasting silver chronograph counters powered by the COSC-certified Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01, which provides about 70 hours of power reserve and is water-resistant up to 200 meters. The revived B01 44 still features interchangeable rider tabs at 3 and 9 o’clock to protect the sapphire crystal, but for the first time, the stainless steel bezels get updated ceramic inserts. Buyers can pick between a Rouleaux-inspired matte rubber strap or the classic metal band with a butterfly clasp.

Breitling’s Super Chronomat 44, Four-Year Calendar features a semi-perpetual calendar that only needs to be adjusted on leap years every 1,461 days. It comes in two versions: a black dial with tone-on-tone chronograph counters, a stainless-steel bezel with a black ceramic bezel insert, and 18k red gold elements, or a blue dial featuring tone-on-tone chronograph counters and a bezel in 18k red gold with a blue ceramic insert. Though water resistance is halved to 100 meters, Breitling’s Super Chronomat 44 features day, date, month, and moon phase indicators with the Universal Time Coordinated clock embedded in the bracelet.
