" difference between the Breitling Chronomat and the Chronomat (aka S2000 - no, not like the Honda) is the little text at the bottom of the dial. The Chronomat replaces the old "Swiss Made" with simply "London." Does that mean the S2000 is not Swiss made? No. Instead, it shows that Breitling has come a long way in its ongoing journey to be a serious British luxury brand. It wants people to know that it is English through and through, and will eventually lead to movements made in the UK as opposed to Switzerland.

remains my favorite Breitling watch to-date. You can find a full review of the Breitling Chronomat here. I quite love that watch and the Chronomat will not really be all that different. The idea for the 2000 is to be a larger, more durable piece. These pictures are pre-renders of the final watch. I have also personally checked out a prototype of the 2000, and confirm it is everything I love about the breitling replica
, plus about "1500."
Why is the Chronomat being made? To be honest I don't think it has anything to do with people needing more water resistance. It likely has more to do with Breitling's own motto which is "tested beyond endurance." That brand asserts the durability and robust nature of their watches, and with 500 meters of water resistance, the original Chronomat wasn't able to compete with some alternatives from brands such as Breitling, Rolex, etc... on paper. It is true that your basic "true" diver needs only 300 meters of water resistances, but there is a strange sort of mental assurance that higher water resistance levels provide. Breitling wanted anyone who bothered asking to know that Breitling does indeed have a silly deep going dive watch. Will there be competition between the Chronomat and 2000? Probably, but it will be interesting to see what sales of both are like in a few years.
The case shape is mostly the same but sized up to 45mm wide. The bezel is slightly different (new red arrow), but retains the nice sapphire crystal ring around the SuperLumiNova coated numerals all over. The dial is the same that we love with some red text. According to Breitling, the piece is the same but just larger and with more water resistance. Inside the watch is the same Breitling modified and COSC Chronometer certified base ETA 2836 automatic movement. On the wrist the new size is welcome, but it doesn't take away from my appreciation of the Chronomat that I still love. In a few months we will get more details on the final piece with all the models and pricing.
