Breitling Endurance Pro SuperQuartz Chronograph
This “Endurance Pro” watch is the watch of choice for the legendary Breitling triathlon team, which includes world-class MM athletes. Jan Frodeno and Chris “Macca” McCormack and Ms. Daniela Ryf. Built in Switzerland with the brand’s patented Breitlight® case – a rugged, scratch-resistant, non-magnetic material and 3.3 times lighter than titanium – this COSC-certified chronometer is powered by a heat-compensated Breitling 82 SuperQuartz ™ movement that can follow up to 1 / 10th of a second. The durable rubber strap matches the storm blue hue of the crown, pulsometer scale and indexes.
Breitling Chronomat B01 Chronograph
“It was the watch that boldly proclaimed that Breitling remained absolutely true to its roots,” says CEO Mr. Georges Kern of the ‘Chronomat’ reference which was redesigned in 2020. Originally launched in 1984 – when the movements at quartz dominated the market – This automatic and COSC certified reference “B01” was built in Switzerland from polished stainless steel and features original design details including a rotating bezel with signature rider lugs and an integrated Rouleaux bracelet. The hands are coated with Super-LumiNova® to ensure readability.
Breitling Chronomat B01 Chronograph
Breitling’s 2020 “ Chronomat ” references are reminiscent of the design details of the original model launched in 1984, such as signature rider tabs on the rotating bezel and an elegant Rouleaux bracelet. Designed with a copper and black dial, this stainless steel ‘B01’ watch is powered by an in-house COSC-certified automatic movement and has an impressive 70-hour power reserve. Super-LumiNova® coating and a red chronograph hand make it easy to read.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Geographic
“For frequent travelers, saving time is always precious,” says Jaeger-LeCoultre, calling its “Master Control” the “ultimate travel watch”. This 40mm model features a “ Geographic ” caliber that simultaneously reads home time and overseas zones on a disc inside the angled bezel, each indicated in blue letters . Classic and elegant, it is housed in a stainless steel case, with a sunray silver dial and elongated dauphine hands.
Montblanc Heritage Monopusher Chronograph
Montblanc released its “Heritage” collection at Watches & Wonders (formerly SIHH) in Geneva last year. Inspired by classic Minerva watches, this Swiss-made “ Monopusher Chronograph ” has a pair of counters on the clean white dial, one of which shows three, six and nine minutes – it’s a vintage detail from the days when people needed to track the time spent on coin-operated phones. It is powered by an automatic movement of caliber MB25.12 and has a classic Milanese mesh bracelet.
Cartier Santos de Cartier
Launched over 100 years ago as one of the very first wristwatches, the Cartier reference “Santos” is truly iconic.
