BREITLING Chronomat 44 Blacksteel SE

They say you can’t get enough of a good thing – and whoever they are were absolutely right. They’d probably say exactly the same of yellow and black – and you know what, they’d be right again!

Breitling have delivered us another stunning Special Edition watch in a sexy combination of black and yellow – last time we saw the very cool, very deep über-diver, the 3000m water-resistant Avenger II Seawolf BLACKSTEEL,

today Breitling have turned their attention to their flagship model, the CHRONOMAT which not only gets a new black carbon-based high-resistance treatment for its sturdy satin-brushed steel case,

but also a whole new face in Breitling’s signature colour, yellow which has been beautifully contrasted with black counters and red hands.

That new black case is endowed with: a Sapphire crystal with AR-coating on both sides, a unidirectional rotational divers bezel with B’lings hallmark 4 rider-tabs in a polished finish and rubber-inlaid markers plus a large vintage–orange coloured luminous pip at 12 o’clock.

A screw-down caseback, crown and chrono-pushers - protected against shocks by substantial lateral reinforcements and a water-resistant to 200 m/660 ft nicely round up the watch’s diving features –

while a Sapphire crystal caseback provides the visuals, affording a view of the precise COSC chronometer-certified Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01 with its black rotor.

A further touch of style is leant to the overall ensemble by a sporty two-tone rubber TwinPro divers strap combining a black exterior with a yellow lining – very nice indeed!
