This is the Breitling Chronomat Evolution. This is the model number A13356. We'll be going over the dial, bezel, case, crown, bracelet, clasp, and we'll talk about the movement towards the end of the video. So, moving right into the dial. The dial configuration we have here is the white cell dial. Almost a sort of a silvery style of dial. When you see light hit it, it kinda has that nice gleam to it. And rather, the sub-dials sort of mimic that same as well. We have sub-dials of elapsed time, as this is a chronograph watch. So at the 6 o'clock position, we have a lapse time for 12 hours, 60 seconds at the 9 o'clock, and 30 minutes at the 12 o'clock position. We have Arabic numerals from one, two, four, five, seven, eight, ten, eleven. Of course, the twelve, nine, and six are blocked out by the sub-dials, and the three is blocked out by the 3 o'clock position date window, as you can see there. And sorta has that bordering of that silver accent around for easier viewing of landmarking of that date window, so it's easier to view. Of course, we have the Breitling name located right next to that. And with the Breitling 1884, the chronograph certification of the chronometer. They like to say the COSC certified watches, the movement is COSC certified. Meaning that it's within Swiss specs of that four to six seconds a day. Besides that we have the tachy or tachymeter scale around edge of the wall of the watch. Sort of raised a little bit or slanted towards the wall of the watch. So I tilt it to the side there, you can see the sort of raised portion of it and it sort of flats out towards the top of it. So almost like a ledge for that tachymetric scale or tachymeter scale. The hands are luminescent so the seconds hand and the hour and minute hand are luminescent so you have easy visibility in the dark. If you're trying to use this watch at night. Also the peridol at the 12 o'clock position on the bezel is luminous as well so you'll be able to landmark the time with the hour hands, hour, minute and seconds hand to that peridol as well. Moving onto the bezel now. The bezel is a unidirectional bezel with that luminous peridol, as I mentioned before, and also marked increments of the quarter of a minute. So you have the 15 seconds there, 30 seconds, 45 and then of course the 12 being at the dot itself. Also segmented as well with the quarter of the seconds as well. You can see there's thicker lines in between each quarter of the seconds. And that helps with reading of the elapsed time as that's what the bezel is used for, being unidirectional. So you can set the bezel. So say, to all the way to the minute hand which is at the 2 o'clock position at the moment. So you would just set the peridot to that minute hand and then you will be able to track the elapsed time from that starting point onwards. As it is being unidirectional, if you do need to reset it, you just have to turn it all the way back to the same position in that one singular direction. And there we are. Moving onto the case now. The case is, this is a stainless steel watch. The size of the case for this watch is a 44 millimeter case size. So in between my finger and my thumb here, that's 44 millimeters in diameter. Nice high polish on the lugs of the case. You can see on the lugs, the bottom lugs nicely high polished. And also on the side of the case as well we have a very beautiful high polish as well. A very thick case size so this won't fit under suit cuffs, dress cuffs very easily. Will probably have to sit over them. You can see the nice screw pattern on the sides of the bezel as well. And that goes throughout to the other side. And then on this side we have the high polish continuing as well. Even on the crown protector there. It's in between the chronograph pushers. Then we have the crown in the center. Now the crown has a simple functions, it unwinds counter clockwise as shown. Into the center position. This is the center position here where you can wind the watch. About 15 to 20 winds is all you need to get the watch started from a dead stop. Then pulling the crown out to the next position will allow you to adjust the date at the 3 o'clock position very simply by going clockwise as shown. See how easy that is. Pulling the crown out to the final position will stop the seconds hand and that seconds sub-dial at that 9 o'clock position there. As you see the position has stopped now and you will be able to adjust the time bi-directionally as shown. And it's stopping the seconds hand is to allow for precise time setting such as to an atomic clock online. You can now set it down to the exact seconds. Pressing the crown back in will start that seconds hand once more. As you can see it started moving once again. And always make sure to screw in the crown nice and tight in against the case as you want to keep the watch water resistant. The chronograph pushers, same works, the same as a crown. Simply unwind counter clockwise and then you can start that central seconds hand or stop it with the 2 o'clock pusher. And then it's reset by the 4 o'clock pusher. As you'll see now. It's back to the 12 o'clock position. That will also reset the elapsed time on the 12 hour sub-dial and the 30 minute sub-dial as well. Of course always make sure, make sure the chronal pushers are screwed back into the case. You want to keep the water resistance and you obviously don't want to bump the pushers off if you do walk around with them open. Alright, moving onto the bracelet now. The bracelet is Breitling standard steel bracelet. It's sort of made up of five links. As you can see there's a central link with two smaller and two outer links. So it's these two large outers, one center and two that connect all together to make this beautiful pattern that goes throughout. Pretty much the whole bracelet, only interrupted by the clasp. All of it is nicely high polished as well so you get a nice shine from each individual link. Moving onto the clasp here. The clasp is similar to a Rolex style clasp where it's a folding oyster. So there's these little safety here that locks on top of the folding, the folding clasp. And you open it up as so. And there we are. We have these two thin clasps blades. We have the Breitling name embossed onto one, on the larger of the clasp blades. Just some smaller engravings on the other portions of it. So that's how the watch looks opened up from the clasp. And that's how it looks closed. And there we are. Nice curvature of that clasp blade to fit underneath the wrist to give it a more comfortable feel. Here is the back side of the case as we move onto the movement now. You can see has a nice engraving of that, of the Breitling logo with the Breitling name down right in the center with a sand finish. Then a high polish around the outer portion of the case. With the chronometer certifica... Breitling certification on the back here, engraved. Engraved there. Then we have the 300 meters right here and that's actually the water resistance of this watch, so 300 meters. I believe that works out to about a thousand feet for water resistance. So the movement, the movement itself is housed in that case backing. It is Breitling's, Breitling 13 movement or B13. What it is, is they modified ETA movement that's, I believe the ETA value 7750 movement. It's a modification of that movement and they call it the B13 movement so it's sort of in-house made but it is a modification of a previous movement. It is, like I said, within the COSC certification which is I believe minus four or plus six seconds a day after casing. The power reserve of that movement specifically is a 42 hour power reserve meaning you could put this watch on maybe Friday evening, pick it back up on a Saturday afternoon, it would be keeping time just fine. Alright, now let me actually go ahead and show you this watch on my wrist now. So, open up that safety. Open up the folding. So, folding down first. Safety on. There's the watch on the wrist. As you can see it does sit very high on the wrist but just look at that. The bracelet looks absolutely gorgeous. Nicely high polished throughout. The white face looks very nice with those silver accents from the Arabic numerals and the hands as well. The bezel with that being able to do the elapsed time. Also the stopwatch features on the front of the chronograph. Just a very useful watch overall with actual usage. The Breitling clasp with the Breitling name stamped on there. Just overall a very, very beautiful watch. Surprisingly, even though it's a 44 millimeter watch, you do feel a little bit of weight on the wrist but it doesn't actually... It's not like a overbearing weight on the wrist so you probably won't be getting any fatigue from wearing this watch all day.
