Breitling has partnered with Govberg Jewelers to present a special limited edition Breitling Chronomat 44 timepiece that finally brings the display back to the Chronomat. The limited edition will be numbered one of 50 pieces, and is targeted at the Breitling Enthusiasts community. I’m a little disappointed that there weren’t any photos of the display back, which is kind of the highlight of the piece. [EDIT: Photos of the caseback have now been provided!]

“Already regarded as a chronograph specialist, Breitling introduced its Caliber 01 in 2009, inducting them into the exclusive circle of manufacturers who design and produce their own chronograph movements. This Chronomat 44 Limited Edition’s sapphire case back affords wearers the ability to admire this high-performance movement, which powers hours, minutes, seconds, date and chronograph functions. It features a 44mm case and a Pilot bracelet in brushed stainless steel, an understated yet handsome alternative to the characteristic high-polish finish found throughout ninety-percent of Breitling’s collection. The dial is constructed in black and charcoal, and the central second hand and chronograph subdial hands are accented in Breitling’s signature yellow. This timepiece was built to ensure extreme sturdiness, and is water resistant to a depth of 500 meters, making it a true ‘Instrument for Professionals.’”
