Re: Details pertaining to actual model # information on my Chronomat EVo



Someone please provide all the details to the model number as removed from the caseback.

Thanks
"C" indicates a Windrider series two tone watch. The two tones are 18K "4N" rose gold and 316L stainless steel. It also tells you the bezel is solid 18K rose gold as are the rider tabs and dial details. The crown and pushers are 18K "rolled" gold. (see "articles" section). The next two numbers "13" indicate Breitling caliber 13 which specifies the watch movement as an ETA/Valjoux 7750 25 jewel 28,800vph self-winding automatic mechanical movement. The next numbers "56" are the specific model number for the Chronomat Evolution. The next two numbers "12" indicate two tone rose gold dial. The next three characters B821 indicate the specific color and dial marker configuration. The bottom three numbers "357C" are the model number of the two tone "Pilot" bracelet which is solid 316L stainless steel with link segments 2 and 4 (of 5) of each link being 18K 4N "rolled" rose gold. All you ever wanted to know and more, isn't it? :-S

PS. The caseback has the watch's serial number etched below the first six characters of the "complete" model/configuration number printed on the sticker you removed from the caseback. i.e., C13356 IS the model number for the basic model of your watch.
