With its all-black fuselage, square counters and super-rugged strap, the famous Breitling Chronomat reasserts its feat-driven mission in a new model exuding a powerful and original style. The entire spirit of aviation on the wrist.
The Chronomat has always been unique in terms of its peerless performance as well its eminently masculine technical look. It is now more unique than ever with the launch of the Chronomat 44 Blacksteel, as this new version of Breitling’s flagship model once again reinvents instruments for professionals. The steel case is distinguished by its high-resistance carbon-based black treatment.
The unidirectional rotating bezel features black rubber-inlaid numerals and a large luminescent dot facilitating the countdown of flight or dive times. The equally black dial in line with the grand tradition of Breitling pilot’s watches stands out for its three square counters and its red accents reminiscent of instrument panels. The exclusive strap of this chronograph combines a military-style anthracite high-tech fabric exterior with a rubber lining guaranteeing excellent comfort.
On the technical side, this model of sturdiness and ergonomics, equipped with screw-lock crown and pushpieces and water-resistant to 200 m (660 ft), is distinguished by its exceptional engine: Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01 selfwinding chronograph movement, powered by a black oscillating weight visible through the transparent caseback. A paragon of reliability and precision, chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute). Chronomat 44 Blacksteel: a brand-new take on the watch adopted by the world’s greatest aerobatics teams.
