Breitling launched the Chrono-Matic in 1969 as one of the first automatic chronograph movements ever; it had an original, distinctive look that was typical for the 1970s.
The movement calibre 15 of the 1969 Breitling Chrono-Matic 2111-15 has a slightly asymmetric shape, which is expertly reflected in the design of the dial. Calibre 15 is based on calibre 1282 by the Buren Watch company with micro-rotor, which was not originally developed to include a chronograph function. This meant that the crown had to be placed on the left side of the case and the watch features a subsidiary second in place of the 12-hour counter, which is positioned at 10 o’clock instead of 9 o’clock (due to the design of the movement).
