Breitling goes “back to dark” with three new line augmentations of its Colt Chronograph Automatic, Navitimer 46, and Avenger II Seawolf models, all in cases made of “Blacksteel,” a metal with a layer of profoundly safe carbon-based treatment that Breitling first beginning utilizing for its watch cases as a part of 2012. This is what you have to think about every one of the three new watches.
The military-roused Breitling Colt Chronograph Automatic Blacksteel (above and underneath) has a 44-mm case with a glossy silk brushed completion and a “Well of lava dark” dial with a round raised theme transmitting from the middle. The dial’s vast hands and hour markers are upgraded with Super-LumiNova, and the unidirectional pivoting bezel highlights four “rider tabs” — a sign of Breitling’s avionics impacted games watches — which empower the wearer to effortlessly turn the tightened bezel even while wearing gloves. The development is Breitling Caliber 13 (in view of the ETA Valjoux 7750), a COSC-affirmed chronometer with a 1/4-second chronograph capacity and date show. The subdials at 12 and 6 o’clock count the 30 chronograph minutes and 12 chronograph hours, separately, while the subdial at 9 o’clock shows the running seconds. The date shows up in a window at 3 o’clock, and the focal chronograph seconds hand has a red bolt tip for perfect neatness against the dull dial. The screw-bolted crown keeps up the watch’s water imperviousness to 200 meters (660 feet). The watch (value: $5,100) is accessible on an elastic Ocean Racer or Diver Pro strap or a military-style fabric strap.
The replica Breitling Avenger II Seawolf Blacksteel (beneath), the most recent emphasis of Breitling’s expert review jumpers’ watch, is a 1,000-piece constrained arrangement with a brushed 45-mm-distance across blacksteel case that is water-impervious to an amazing 3,000 meters (10,000 feet). The case is furnished with a decompression valve for immersion jumping and a unidirectional, tightened, pivoting plunge scale bezel with four rider tabs. The twofold gasket, screw-bolted crown gloats defensive fortifications and a non-slip hold. The dial, in Breitling’s “Cobra yellow” shading, makes for an unmistakable difference with the dark case and strap. It has huge, luminescent-covered hands and hour lists and is ensured under a thick, bended sapphire precious stone that is glareproofed on both sides. Its COSC-confirmed development, Breitling Caliber 17 (in light of the ETA 2824-2), highlights programmed winding and a high recurrence of 28,800 vph. The Avenger II Seawolf Blacksteel ($4,625) accompanies a dark elastic Ocean Racer or Diver Pro strap, an innovative military fiber strap, or a strap consolidating an extreme, military fabric outside with an elastic center.
The Breitling Navitimer replica 46 Blacksteel (beneath) is the stand out of the three new models fueled by a Breitling in-house Caliber, the programmed Caliber 01, which conveys a COSC chronometer affirmation and holds a force store of over 70 hours; it has a darkened winding rotor that is obvious through a sapphire window in the watch’s caseback. The silk brushed blacksteel case measures 46 mm in breadth and is equipped with another unmistakably Breitling component, a bidirectional pivoting bezel with a round slide administer, a gadget intended to help pilots in making counts identified with airborne route. Contrasting from the traditional Navitimer dial, with its three silvered subdials, this present watch’s dial has only two tone-on-tone subdials — little seconds at 9 o’clock and 30-minute chronograph counter at 3 o’clock — alongside a date show at 6 o’clock. Red is utilized for the subdial hands and for the focal range seconds chronograph hand. The dark elastic strap highlights another air ship tire-tread theme, a style now accessible on all Navitimer models. The Navitimer 46 Blacksteel retails for $9,225.
