Breitling Reveals Its Limited-Edition Chronomat Six Nations Watch Series
Only 150 pieces available per model.
Breitling just revealed its Chronomat Six Nations watch series ahead of the Guinness Six Nations Championship kick-off this Saturday. As the exclusive luxury watch partner of Six Nations Rugby, the Swiss watchmaker crafted six different timepieces, each limited to 150 units, to correspond to each national team, which are RFU (England), IRFU (Ireland), WRU (Wales), SRU (Scotland), FFR (France), and FIR (Italy).
Originally created as the official timepiece for the Frecce Tricolori, the Chronomat has since gained popularity amongst aviators and athletes who challenge human endurance across the land, sea and in the air. From the signature raised rider tabs at each 15-minute mark, onion crown, rouleaux bracelet, as well as triple-register dials, the new 42mm Chronomats are powered by the in-house Manufacture Calibre 01, while carrying all the notable features of Breitling’s most multifaceted sports watch model.
Aesthetics-wise, each piece is attired in its designated union colors, while the 9 o’clock subdial and caseback are adorned with their corresponding team logos. Speaking about the new watch series, Georges Kern, Breitling’s CEO says, “As Breitling’s all-purpose, no-limits sports watch, the Chronomat Six Nations is the ideal match for the fast and fearless world of rugby.”
The limited-edition Chronomat Six Nations watches are only available for purchase within the UK and select European countries. To find out more about their availability and price points, head over to Breitling’s official website.
