Watch & Learn: Wayne Gretzky’s Breitling

The Great One scores with this classic travel timepiece

Written by Rhonda Riche

Wayne Gretzky has won almost every award in the world of professional hockey, but he has never landed on any best-dressed lists. Maybe that’s why it’s taken until 2014 for the most celebrated of all hockey heroes to get his own namesake watch.

Recently, Gretzky has been relaxing into a distinguished gentleman style (as demonstrated here in Toronto earlier this month). It’s a look that’s sporty, and his Breitling Chronomat GMT Wayne Gretzky is a perfect fit for this new sartorial phase. Launched last October, this watch is a limited edition of 99 pieces (in honor of his famous jersey number) and available only in Canada to make it even more rare (if you can’t make it across the border, this watch is the next best thing). 

On paper it would appear that this is a timepiece aimed at rabid collectors and fans. But look closer and you’ll notice that this handsome model is free of most of the logos and team branding associated with most jock watches. In fact, the only visible call out to the former L.A. Kings captain is the Gretzky name and number etched on the case back. 

Breitling Chronomat GMT

The Chronomat’s understated styling makes this tool watch appealing to any Breitling fan. With the chronograph dials and world time hands and rings, this complicated watch could have been too busy-looking to read. But the monochromatic markings (punched up with a red chapter ring) and stainless steel case and strap create a clean, unfussy frame for all of the functions.

There are plenty of other reasons why the Chronomat and Gretzky make such a good team. Both made a big splash in the ’80s—The Chronomat’s distinctive bezel and Winged “B” logo first appeared in 1984, the same year Gretzky won his first Stanley Cup with the Edmonton Oilers. And his legacy is all about timing. The Chronomat GMT Wayne Gretzky’s Manufacture Breitling Caliber B04 self-winding movement is certified for accuracy by Switzerland’s official chronometer testing agency, the  Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres . 

Finally, the crown-adjustable two time zone system lets the user easily reset the hours while traveling without having to reset the minute hand display. The rotating bezel provides a third time zone reading. Like Gretzky’s on-ice persona, Breitling Chronomat GMT is quick and smart.

Breitling watch battery?

The battery on my Breitling chrono colt has finally run out. Now I know I need to send it off to Breitling at vast sums of money to get a new battery fitted and for it to have a service (worse than a car this!). Does anyone know what sort of price I am looking at, how long it takes and can I send it directly to Breitling or do I need to use an agent e.g. the watch shop in Zug?

Worst I've got a nice watch thread ;-)

Re: Breitling watch battery?

unless its still under warantee then just take it to your local watch shop and let them change the battery. battery watches don't really need to be serviced unless there is something wrong with it, or you really have money to burn by letting them clean it (but they do a very good job of cleaning it)

the only difference between your local shoe shop repair type place and breitling is breitling will guarantee its waterproofness afterwards and may give you an extra years warantee, which is a pretty expensive way to get one

Think I paid 25chf for a battery change for my Tag, instead of the 350chf tag wanted.

eta - my tag was still waterproof afterwards
