Breitling is famous for its pilot watches and has established long-term cooperative relations with the British Royal Air Force (RAF), especially its legendary aerobatic team Red Arrows and other air forces around the world. Breitling has continued its thirty-year partnership and has just announced the launch of the Breitling Chronomat Red Arrows limited edition 42 mm replica AB01347A1C1A1.
This is the latest version of the “Red Arrow” released in the 1990s, but the first is based on the latest generation of Chronomat replica, which also means that it is the first internal movement, Calibre 01.
Case & Dial
The only overt reference to the team on the dial is the Diamond Nine emblem, the trademark formation of the Red Arrows. It sits under 12 o’clock on the sunburst-brushed blue dial, juxtaposed against black sub-dials.
The Breitling Red Arrows edition replica has the same 42 mm steel case as used on the standard Chronomat. It’s fitted with a unidirectional bezel that features the rider tabs on the quarters that defined the first-generation Chronomat, but now streamlined to sit almost flush with the bezel.
As on the original, the rider tabs are interchangeable, allowing the wearer to convert the bezel from elapsed time to countdown. This watch uses a Rouleaux bracelet composed of rod-shaped links, which adds a retro touch to the original modern case.
The copy Breitling Chronomat Red Arrows watch is powered the Caliber 01, the in-house movement found in the brand’s higher-end chronographs, including the flagship Navitimer. Boasting a longish 70-hour power reserve, the Caliber 01 is a finely constructed movement that features both a column wheel and vertical clutch. It’s visible through the sapphire back, though only partially due to the Red Arrows badge printed on the crystal.
