In 1884 Léon Breitling established Breitling in Grenchen – the Canton of Solothurn, in Switzerland. Breitling is one of very few independent Swiss watchmakers left.
Léon Breitling intended for his company to specialize in the field of timers and chronographs – precision instruments to be used primarily within science, sports and industry.
The Chronomat Collection is considered to be the flagship of Breitling since it uses Breitling’s famous B01, and B04 in-house made automatic/mechanical chronograph movements. However, the Breitling Chronomat Blackbird relies on ETA/Valjoux movements, which means this collection is not exactly comparable to the other Chronomat collections.
The Valjoux 7750 movement however, is nothing to sneer at. It may be a basic and generic ETA movement, but it’s also one of the most efficient and reliable movements ever made! The Valjoux 7750 is actually a legendary movement and has been around for several decades.
Breitling Chronomat Blackbird offers you a water resistance of 300 meters/1,000 feet, which means this is a proper divers watch.
