When you become a famous athlete, you get lots of companies offering to pay you money to endorse their products. When you become the most dominant player in your sport to ever live, you get companies naming extremely upscale products after you just to pay tribute (which, hopefully, you get paid for as well) – as with the new Breitling Chronomat 44 “Wayne Gretzky” limited edition.
This special edition of the Breitling Chronomat 44 is an extremely limited edition with only 50 pieces being released worldwide. That’s not an arbitrary figure. Instead, it reflects the iconic 50 goals Gretzky scored in just 39 games in 1981, setting a scoring record that’s a crucial part of Gretzky’s legacy.
I could go into detail about the Breitling Chronomat 44 “Wayne Gretzky” and its technological features, but suffice it to say that each individually numbered watch is up to the highest standard of quality, capped off by a signature from The Great One himself on the rotor.
