Known Models
Chronoracer Rattrapanté (A69048)

The Breitling caliber 69 is a rare mecaquartz movement found in the Chronoracer Rattrapanté model (Ref: A69048). This movement was in watches that were sold around 2000 to 2002.

This caliber is based off the Frédéric Piguet caliber 1271. It is a hybrid mechanical/quartz movement. It gets power via the battery cell, but the rattrapante complication is mechanical. This caliber also utilizes a mechanical vertical clutch column wheel for the chronograph function.

Very rare indeed. Also found in the Chrono Avenger Sixty Nine A69360. They only made 600 of them and I stupidly sold one.

This is might be my quartz grail

I love the accuracy of the quartz main movement as I’m fed up with having to regularly reset automatics. The immediacy of the chrono reset, the feel of the pushers, and the smooth sweep of the chrono seconds hand are also very much to my taste.

If all quartz watches were like this then I would have more quartz watches.
