In Partnership With Breitling
Limited to just 1,500 pieces, Victoria Beckham’s reimagining of one of Breitling’s most iconic timepieces celebrates the watch’s classic form while adding a modern, elegant expression to the design. The collection retains classic Chronomat features like the metal rouleaux bracelet, combined with refined new colourways inspired by Victoria’s own Spring/Summer 2024 palette, including peppermint, midnight blue, dove gray, and sand, perfectly aligning fashion with function. Yellow gold has also been revived by Breitling especially for the collection, with stainless steel cases also an option.
Each piece comes in a specially designed co-branded box and the gold pieces are accompanied by a co-branded travel pouch, making them the perfect heirloom to hand down. “It has been wonderful watching Breitling’s craftsmanship and innovation come together with my ideas to create something so elegant and fresh,” says Victoria of the partnership.
Founded in 1884, the Swiss watchmaker has always been at the forefront of innovation and a champion of craft – the exceptional quality of every watch movement is confirmed by its status as a COSC-certified chronometer, and the brand remains one of only a handful of independent watchmakers to produce its own manufacture calibers. As they continue to move forward, Breitling is on a mission to do better, combining classic watchmaking with the latest and most sustainable innovations.
Few can boast a career as successful or indeed varied as Victoria Beckham. Rising to fame in the ’90s as one-fifth of the best-selling girl brand in history, the groundbreaking Spice Girls, she has since gone on to become one of the world’s most-loved style and cultural icons and a lauded fashion designer. She launched her eponymous clothing line in 2008 with a 10-dress collection that was celebrated for its precision and fit, quickly cementing her aesthetic as one of refined, contemporary luxury. Her empire now includes ready-to-wear, footwear, accessories, beauty and fragrance, and the brand has just reported its most successful financial year to date.
