Breitling launches a special edition of Chronomat 44 Blacksteel
September 21, 2016: Watchmaker Breitling has given a whole new personality to its Chronomat model featuring a resolutely technical and masculine style. The satin-brushed steel case and bezel stand out by their black carbon-based high-resistance treatment. They make a powerful contrast with the new yellow dial – Breitling’s signature color – against which the black counters and red hands reminiscent of instrument panels stand out with clarity.
The originality continues on the caseback with a black oscillating weight visible through a transparent sapphire crystal, as well as on the two-tone rubber TwinPro strap combining a black exterior with a yellow lining.
The rugged case is water-resistant to 200 m/660 ft. The screw-lock crown and safety pushpieces form an impenetrable rampart against any water infiltration and are protected against shocks by substantial lateral reinforcements. The unidirectional rotating bezel with black rubber-inlaid numerals is equipped with four polished rider tabs serving to measure times as well as facilitating handling.
