From Govberg with love: Limited Edition Breitling Chronomat 44
Philadelphia based Govberg Jewelers have formed an exclusive partnership between Breitling and themselves which has resulted in the Chronomat 44 Special Edition timepiece; a strictly limited series of 50 numbered pieces.
The watch, specially designed for Govberg's Breitling worshipping customers, is in brushed stainless steel and features a sapphire crystal exhibition caseback displaying the Breitling Calibre 01 movement, a key movement for the brand since its introduction in 2009.
Govberg Jewelers are the longest established Breitling dealer in North America and as such they really wanted to collaborate on a model exclusively for their clientele of keen collectors.
“Over the past twenty-five years, we have watched Breitling transition from its ‘infancy’ to a horological superpower with a true cult following,” Third generation President & CEO of Govberg Jewelers Danny Govberg said. “We are honored to celebrate the Breitling collector community with such an exceptional timepiece.”
The 44mm case features the characteristic high-polish finish found throughout many models in the Breitling collection. Its functions include hours, minutes, seconds, date and chronograph. The model also has a power reserve of 70 hours and is water resistant to 500 metres.
The dial is in black and charcoal with a central second hand and chronograph subdial hands accented in the brand’s signature yellow. The dial has a unidirectional rotating ratcheted bezel and is priced at $9,590.
