The Breitling Chronomat embodies the absolute spirit of aviation on the wrist, with its all-black fuselage, square counters and super-rugged strap. The latest version of the watch, which is now available in Breitling Boutiques and partner stores across the region, reasserts its feat-driven mission exuding a powerful and original style. 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.

Commenting on the new instrument for professionals, Aed Adwan, Breitling Middle East, said: “The Chronomat 44 Blacksteel is a brand-new take on the watch adopted by the world’s greatest aerobatics teams. In line with the grand tradition of Breitling pilot’s watches, this model is equipped with a black dial and stands out for its three square counters and its red accents which is reminiscent of aircraft instrument panels. The strap is an exclusive combination of a military-style anthracite high-tech fabric exterior with a rubber lining which guarantees excellent comfort. This is a specialised instrument for our customers who enjoy pushing the boundaries.”
