The Breitling Montbrillant Olympus has three date complications and a four year calendar. To give perspective on what a great achievement this is: The average mechanical chronograph watch with date function has about 150 individual components. The Montbrillant Olympus has just shy of 250. This component count is further increased by Breitling’s decision to include another wonderful complication, the moonphase.

These horological wonders would be worth the admission price on their own. However, as always, Breitling have created a stunning wrist watch whereby the whole is much more than the myriad of parts. The subdial at 12 O’clock displays both the seconds and the date. Added to all this is Breitling’s iconic slide rule calculator, which adds a further 60 numbers to the dial. One of the main reasons the Montbrillant Olympus is able to display so much information without looking cluttered or fussy is the individual details. Breitling are renowned for designing tool watches that are also, arguably, elegant. A feat that requires deep understanding of horology and aesthetics to achieve.

High on the list of these exquisite details is the “beads of rice” bezel. This is no designer’s whimsy to add a little class to this watch. This is a well thought out homage to the first AOPA Navitimers of the 1950s. Another stunning design feature that reflects and captures Breitling’s illustrious history is the best solid case back I have ever seen. A true work of art that depicts the first Breitling factory built by the founder Leon Breitling in 1892 on Montbrillant Street, La Chaux-de-Fonds. Despite the organised chaos on the dial, that is a given from the chronograph, date and moonphase displays, the time is very easy to read off both day and night due to the bright elegant hands and the high-contrast arabic hour markers. the Montbrillant Olympus is now sadly discontinued having been present in Breitling’s catalogue from 2006 to 2009.
