The Chronomat Evolution is considered the Flagship model in the Breitling range. The first Chronomat model was launched in 1942, and was then the first chronograph to incorporate a slide rule, 12 years before the Navitimer. Rather than beeing a pilot's watch, the Chronomat's emphasis was rather on engineering and mathematics. Prime target being people working in science and industry.
The Chronomat Evolution was launched at Basel in April, 2004. Its first catalogue appearance is in the 2005 Breitling Chronolog issued from October 2004. The Evolution is bigger in diameter, thickness and weight than the previous models and is quite a departure from the original 1984 Chronomat. One previously iconic feature, the straight case sides has been dropped; the Evolution has conventional lugs.
This specific model has a distinctive dial colour that contrasts with the gold bezel. This piece is in excellent condition with full papers and boxes.
