Official description

Cities have opened up, a travel-deprived world is eager to get moving again, and, in response, GMT complications are back in a big way. Named for Greenwich Mean Time, the original international time-zone standard, the Chronomat Automatic GMT 40 is Breitling’s tribute to travel—not only for its dual-time-zone display, but also because of its easygoing aesthetics.

Subtle dial colors of black, blue, green, anthracite, and white, combined with an all-steel case and bracelet, work with any wardrobe. Breitling went for a tone-on-tone 24-hour scale to let the red GMT hand speak for itself.

The Breitling Caliber 32 powers the GMT complication. Its 24-hour scale lets the user track a second time zone and know at a glance whether it’s day or night. Its “onion” crown (a classic Chronomat feature named for its fluted dome shape) provides easy grip. As an all-purpose sports watch, meant to cross over between Breitling’s air, land, and sea universes, the GMT 40 has an impressive 200-meter water resistance.

As “a watch for every pursuit”, the Chronomat’s mission is truer now than ever because of the GMT 40’s practical size and understated style. Sturdy enough for the gym yet smart enough for black tie: if there’s one watch to travel with, this is it.
