Mechanical chronometer: Breitling Chronomat 44 Blacksteel Special Edition
The Chronomat is Breitling’s contemporary chronograph classic. The Navitimer is the traditionalist, the Chronomat is the modernist, spectacularly highlighted in the 1980s by the Italian Frecce Tricolore stunt flying team.
The robust image and ditto construction are very evident in the latest version, called the Chronomat 44 Blacksteel Special Edition. The name reveals the diameter of the steel case and the intensely black DLC finish. The black counters and red dials are a reference to instrument panels. The case, which is water resistant to 200m, houses the chronometer manufacture Caliber 01 movement with a 70-hour power reserve and a special black rotor that can be admired through the sapphire case back.
