BREITLING Chronomat 44 BLACKSTEEL

By TLex The Chronomat is more unique than ever with the launch of the Chronomat 44 BLACKSTEEL, as this new version of Breitling’s flagship model once again reinvents itself with a some exciting new design features!



Okay, let’s deal with the elephant in the room; Breiting have given this new Chronomat square counters! While some of you are gonna absolutely love them, many of you might be scratching your heads saying – why?



I appreciate the move to freshen up the Chronomat but the square counters just aren’t doing it for me – perhaps they’ll grow on me over time!



So what else is going on with this brand-new take on the ultimate sports chronograph? Its 44mm steel case has been treated by with a high-resistance carbon-based black coating as are many of Breiltling’s special editions divers.



The unidirectional rotational divers bezel now features black rubber-inlaid numerals, at 12 o’clock a large orange luminescent dot facilitates the countdown of dive time. The equally black dial boasts three new square counters; reminiscent of instrument panels, they are in line with Breitling aviation heritage.



Another brand-new feature is a special strap that combines a military-style anthracite high-tech fabric exterior with a rubber lining for excellent comfort.



Further featres of the watch include: screwdown crown and chrono-pushers, a water-resistant to 200 m (660 ft) and a Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01 self-winding chronograph chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute) - powered by a black rotor that is visible through the Sapphire exhibition caseback.
