The new Breitling Chronomat Automatic GMT 40 replica watches, or Chronomat GMT for short, is tasked with filling the remaining gap in its namesake collection: All the popular sizes had been covered from petite 32mm all the way to brutish 44mm, but 40mm, the sweet-spot for many. The new Chronomat GMT 40 combines five distinct dial colors with a calculated package of form and function to make the Chronomat collection complete.
Chronographs are cool, and chronographs with rotatable timing bezels, like that on the replica breitling Chronomat 42 and Chronomat 44 Replica, are arguably cooler, still. But those watches can’t be other than thick and heavy: They combine close to 400-part movements with 200 meters of water resistance and the aforementioned rotating bezel.
The new Chronomat GMT 40 measures 40mm in diameter and just 11.77mm in thickness, making for a great daily wear. Despite its smaller dimensions, it has maintained the 200m water resistance rating of its larger alternatives, so it has not sacrificed anything from the all-rounder appeal of the Cheap Breitling Replica. The lug-to-lug measurement is just 47.4mm, falling considerably below the 50mm mark, which serves as an upper limit of wearability for those with narrower wrists. The crown guard is very neatly finished and integrated into the profile of the case, with gently curved and polished edges that lead to the somewhat oversized crown.
