Black case, yellow dial, manufacture movement… the Chronomat 44 Blacksteel Special Edition has performance written all over.

Breitling treats its stellar Chronomat model to a whole new face in a special edition 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 yellow dial – Breitling’s signature color – against which the black counters and red hands reminiscent of instrument panels stand out with admirable 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.

While its new look is especially striking, the Chronomat 44 Blacksteel Special Edition has all the technical qualities that have made the Chronomat the ultimate chronograph and a loyal companion of pilots the world over. 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. The dial ensures optimal readability thanks to its large luminescent-coated hour-markers and hands, protected by a sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides. The Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01, chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute) ensures maximum reliability and precision.
