IN THE SPOTLIGHT: BREITLING CHRONOMAT FOR WOMEN
IN THE SPOTLIGHT: BREITLING CHRONOMAT FOR WOMEN
Lights, camera, a premiere twice: Breitling introduces the new Spotlight Squad, as they launch their new line of Breitling Chronomat 36 and 32 watches, women's models of action, purpose and style.
"For this new collection they have been inspired by the Breitling woman as such, as featured in the #SQUADONAMISSION campaign: a woman of action, with purpose and style who masters what she does," says Breitling CEO Georges Kern.
There are people who not only master the art of shining in the foreground, but also that of illuminating other people with that glow and inspiring them to change the world. Three of them are part of the Spotlight Squad: Charlize Theron, Misty Copeland and Yao Chen. They are extraordinary professionals in the scene who masterfully master what they do and have pulverized the stereotypes attached to their sex and their respective fields of work.
A native of South Africa, Oscar winner Charlize Theron has proven her versatility in a multitude of roles and genres. In 2004 she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of a serial killer in Monster. In 2019, she starred in and co-produced the drama El Escándalo, which earned her another nomination for another Academy Award.
In 2007, dancer Misty Copeland was only the second African-American woman to become a soloist at the American Ballet Theater (ABT), but in 2015 she became the first African-American to take over as prima ballerina. That same year, Time magazine named her among the 100 most influential people in the world.
Yao Chen is a Chinese television and film actress with numerous accolades, including the China Golden Eagle Audience Award category (2010) and Best Actress at the Busan International Film Festival (2016, Asian Content). In 2019 she won the Golden Mulberry Award for Lifetime Achievement at the Far East Film Festival.
Breitling - Passion for reaching more
In addition to their excellent work on screen and on stage, none of the three are shy about taking control of their own life while trying to improve that of others. All three form, in effect, a tenacious female squad that takes action for what they believe in and for the problems that matter most to them.
Breitling CEO Georges Kern adds: “Who better than Charlize Theron, Misty Copeland and Yao Chen to bring great global causes to the fore as they redefine what it means to be a strong woman?
Three dazzling stars known for their intensity and for pushing the limits. The link between them is the Spotlight Squad and Breitling's real commitment to change, diversity and the goal of reshaping the world we live in. "
Ready for any mission with Breitling watches
Parallel to its commitment to its core values and innovation, Breitling is also dedicated to pushing the limits of what is possible, whether high above the clouds, on the ground or deep beneath the waves. As versatile and attractive as the Spotlight Squad, its latest collection - the Chronomat 36 and 32 series - takes women wherever they want to go.
Breitling's first Chronomat designed for women is a watch suitable for any mission. Although it has its roots in the 1980s, it is a model that looks to the future and is designed for current and innovative women who are redefining attitudes and challenging stereotypes. Sporty yet elegant, this modern retro-inspired watch accompanies its wearer from business meetings to the beach, and on any other occasion. It is a symbol of competition and spontaneous style.
Breitling Chronomat - Everyday luxury, in two sizes and many models
The stunning watches from the Breitling Chronomat range for women are mounted on Breitling's iconic Rouleaux bracelet; Together with the butterfly clasp, the set is as robust as it is elegant. Like all Breitling watches, the chronometers are COSC certified, an independent testimony confirming their Swiss precision.
Swimmers, surfers, divers and even bathtub mermaids will appreciate its tightness in water up to 100 meters deep. In terms of finish, the watches show almost the same diversity as the women of the Spotlight Squad. In addition to the variety of sizes (36mm Automatic and 32mm SuperQuartz ™), you can choose from a range of metal cases: the elegance of pink stainless steel, the two-tone that goes with everything, or the luxury of 18K red gold.
Women who crave an extra sparkle have diamond-set bezels and indexes available. The Breitling Chronomat Automatic 36 is powered by Breitling's Caliber 10, with a power reserve of around 42 hours.
There are ten versions to choose from, with special lacquered dials in white, pale green, midnight blue or copper. The Chronomat 32 gets the boost from Breitling's Caliber 77 and a battery life of between three and four years. It is offered in seven versions, with white or midnight blue dials.
A link with tradition
Since the 1940s, Breitling has created a number of specific models for women. Going back to 1957, we find the delicate Women's TransOcean, dubbed "the most wonderful example of Breitling precision." The Lady J proclaimed its boldness in the 1990s. In 2010 came the Galactic, "refined luxury with uncompromising technical sophistication."
Among the latest Breitling watches for women are the iconic Breitling Navitimer 35 and 38 and the sporty Breitling Superocean 36.
