A highly complex movement BREITLING MONTBRILLANT OLYMPUS - A rendezvous with tradition

(07/2005) For Breitling, the name Montbrillant refers to chronographs endowed with a wealth of tradition and exclusive features. One such model is the Montbrillant Olympus, a chronograph inspired by the finest products made by the brand in the course of its history. The beaded bezel, for example, is a faithful reproduction of the first chronographs equipped with a slide rule. In the same spirit, the two-tone dial clearly distinguishes the timekeeping zone from the logarithmic scales.

Exclusively with a black dial Breitling MONTBRILLANT EDITION

(02/2005) For BREITLING, the name Montbrillant naturally conjures up pictures of the time and place of its first great chronograph factory, perched on a sunny hillside overlooking the Swiss watchmaking city of La Chaux-de-Fonds. It is there that the ingenious inventions of the Breitling family were born, including the most important, the second return-to zero pushbutton, and the most famous, the circular slide-rule created in 1942.
