The original instrument
Breitling Montbrillant // Caliber: Breitling 41 // Vibrations per hour: 28,800 // Jewels: 38
In Breitling's corporate memory, the name Montrbrillant brings to mind a very special time and place: the dats of its first full-fledged chronograph factory, perched on a sun-drenched hillside overlocking the town of La Chaux de Fonds. It was here that the Breitling family's finest developments were born: the second, return to zero pushpiece, the most important of all and, in 1942, the circular slide rule, the most famous. The Monstrillant spirit lives on today in a line of outstanding mechanical chronographs that reflect both the styling and the manufacturing techniques of the period. From its convex crystal and dial made in the traditional manner to its classic circular slide rule, a half-century has turned the Montbrillant into a true signature product.
