Your Breitling chronometer is a sophisticated instrument that is constantly subjected to a wide variety of stresses and strains. Within a very small volume, a large number of components contribute to handling all the functions. Their mechanical action inevitably leads to a certain amount of wear and tear, which may be controlled by maintenance consisting of relubrication and replacing worn components. Like any precision measurement instrument, your watch must be regularly maintained in order to function at its highest level of potential: the frequency of this operation varies according to actual use. Breitling or your authorized retailer will be happy to handle the procedure.
The movement of your chronometer is protected by a complex case ﬁ tted with gaskets to ensure its water resistance. Under the inﬂ uence of various external agents – perspiration, chlorinated or saltwater, cosmetics, fragrances, or dust – these gaskets gradually deteriorate. That is why water resistance cannot be permanently guaranteed. If used intensively in water, we recommend having an
annual water-resistance check conducted. In any event, such an appraisal must be done every two years. This operation, which takes only a few minutes may be conducted by a Breitling authorized maintenance center, or by an authorized retailer (www.breitling.com).
Breitling Super Chronomat B01 44 AB0136A71A1S1 models are water-resistant to varying degrees. The extent of the water resistance, expressed in meters (M), is a standard value and does not indicate an absolute immersion depth. The crown and push-pieces must not under any circumstances be operated underwater or when the watch is wet. The table below indicates the conditions in which your watch may reasonably be used, according to its degree of water resistance:
Breitling Super Chronomat B01 44 AB0136A71A1S1 genuine leather straps are crafted with the most reﬁ ned materials and represent extremely high-quality products. Like all objects in natural skin (shoes, gloves, etc.), their length of life varies considerably, according to the conditions in which they are worn. ln particular, water, cosmetics, and perspiration accelerate the aging process. A metal or synthetic Breitling bracelet is thus better suited to activities involving frequent contact with water or moisture.
Breitling metal cases and bracelets are made from ﬁ nest alloys and guarantee sturdiness and wearer comfort. Regular cleaning by
rinsing and brushing in clean water will keep your watch shiny. This operation is strongly recommended after each immersion in salty
or chlorinated water. For watches ﬁ tted with a leather strap, the same advice applies, as well as avoiding getting the strap wet.
Like any valuable objects, Breitling Super Chronomat B01 44 AB0136A71A1S1 deserve special care. It is important to protect them from jarring and knocks by hard objects, and not to expose them to chemical products, solvents, dangerous gases, or magnetic ﬁ eds. Moreover, your Breitling chronometer is designed to run smoothly at temperatures ranging between 0°C and 50°C.
