With their eye-catching colours and luminescence, these watches evoke the intoxicating vibes of summer, marine life, and lush greenery. Available in three distinctive versions, the Chronomat Automatic 36 South Sea Capsule Collection is the spirited sister of Breitling’s latest Chronomat for Women. This elegantly modern, retroinspired watch is for ladies looking to stand out from the crowd. It symbolises competence and effortless style with a breezy twist.
“This colourful and exclusive new capsule collection – to be produced for a limited time only – is aimed at more fashion-forward women of action, purpose, and style,” notes Breitling CEO Georges Kern.
The timepieces in the new Chronomat Automatic 36 South Sea Capsule Collection feature special lacquered dials in beige, midnight blue, and mint green, as well as matching alligator straps with folding clasps. Especially striking are the golden indexes and hands, not to mention the diamond-set hour markers and cocktail-hued gem-set bezels.
On the technical side, these Swiss-made beauties are powered by the Breitling Caliber 10, a COSC-certified chronometer that offers a power reserve of approximately 42 hours. The delightful Chronomat Automatic 36 South Sea Capsule Collection is also a perfect fit for Breitling partner DREST, the world’s first interactive luxury fashion mobile game. This highly immersive game puts players in the role of fashion stylists choosing clothing and accessories from over 200 leading global fashion brands.
The second Breitling–DREST mood board challenge – based on the new Chronomat Automatic 36 South Sea Capsule Collection – went live on today, March 17 at 12:00 noon GMT, and will run for three days (72 hours).
A Nod To Tradition
Since the 1940s, Breitling has created a variety of dedicated women’s models. There was the delicate ladies’ TransOcean, called the “most wonderful expression of Breitling precision” back in 1957. The Lady J made a bold statement in the 1990s, before the Galactic brought a “blend of refined luxury and uncompromising technical sophistication” in 2010. More recent women’s timepieces include the iconic Navitimer 35 and 38 and the sporty Superocean 36. The original 1984 Chronomat helped signal the rebirth of the Swiss watch industry, and it has inspired many more timepieces over the past four decades – including women’s models. Today, the modern-retro watches of the Chronomat for Women collection shine the spotlight on confident and versatile women.
Since 1884, Breitling has established a global reputation for high-precision timepieces, its pioneering role in the development of the wrist chronograph, and its uncompromising commitment to design excellence. With the brand’s storied association with aviation, Breitling has shared the finest moments in humankind’s conquest of the skies. Renowned for its spirit of innovation, it has also earned a place of privilege in the worlds of science, sport, and technology. Breitling manufactures its own movements in-house and the quality of every one is – like the movements in all Breitling watches – confirmed by its status as a COSC-certified chronometer, made in Switzerland
