Breitling has finally released the Chronomat 44 in a Blacksteel version. For many, this has been a long-awaited model, hoping for the Blacksteel material to be available on this popular model. It features the military rubber strap and very interesting looking square subdials. I am not sure what to make of the square subdials yet, as they are unusual on a round watch. They have rounded corners though, which helps.
The lume is also a cool antique lume, which is quite popular on watches these days.. overall a nice addition with some unique features to set it apart from the pack. I think I would have preferred round subdials though. Additionally, this does not appear to be a limited edition in any way.
A brand-new take on the ultimate aviation chronograph
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 unidirectional rotating bezel features black rubber-inlaid numerals. The dial is distinguished by red accents reminiscent of instrument panels. The exclusive strap combines a military-style high-tech fabric exterior with a rubber lining guaranteeing excellent comfort. This model of sturdiness and ergonomics houses a Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01 movement, powered by a black oscillating weight visible through the transparent caseback. A brand-new take on the ultimate aviation chronograph.
