Swiss watchamker Breitling is launching a new in-house mechanical chronograph movement at Baselworld 2009, called caliber B01. The new manufacture movement has a column wheel, a vertical-trigger mechanism, and a power reserve of over 70 hours.

The movement features a patented mechanism for auto-centering of the reset hammers and an exclusive index regulator system that allows the watch’s timing to be customized to the wearer.
