In Breitling’s corporate memory, the name Montbrillant brings to mind the place and time of its first full-fledged chronograph factory perched on a sun-drenched hillside overlooking the town of La Chaux-de-Fonds. It was there that some of the brand’s most ingenious inventions were born, along with some of its most emblematic designs. Today, the Montbrillant spirit lives on in a chronograph featuring aesthetic details clearly inspired by the 1940’s, including the hands and the traditional centre one-hundredth of an hour indication. The dial, finely crafted using the “épargne” method, features the famous stylized B fashioned in 18K gold. The Montbrillant also has a screwed-in case adorned with the Breitling logo in use until the mid-20th century. Another special feature of the Montbrillant is its extremely reasonable 38 mm diameter, an ideal size for even the smallest wrists.
