The 'Big Case' Chronomat was introduced in 1968-1969 as part of Breitling's earliest offerings with the newly conceived Chronomatic caliber. The first ones were fitted with caliber 11; these were shortly thereafter discontinued in favor of caliber 12. Together with the 818 it is among the first Breitling models to feature the geared bezel.


Updated version of caliber 11. Notable changes include the creeping date change (already found on the -1 versions of the former) and the updated frequency.
