Chronoliner Blacksteel 

The Chronoliner Blacksteel teams a high-tech ceramic bezel with a black steel case, along with a matching dial and rubber strap. Providing a technical and elegant uniform for the authentic flight captain’s watch, the new model is equipped with a steel case coated with a high-resistance carbon-based treatment. The watch’s dark touch continues on the dial which features tone-on-tone counters, as well as on the original rubber strap which picks up the design of the steel mesh Aero Classic bracelets. The back of the model bears a depiction of the stylised planes that were a long-time Breitling signature.


Colt Chronograph Automatic Blacksteel   

With its sturdy case water-resistant to 200m, its large screw-locked crown fitted with protective reinforcements and its unidirectional rotating bezel, the Colt Chronograph Automatic boldly flaunts its military origins. Equipped with a 44 mm-diameter satin-brushed steel case, the watch is distinguished by its high resistance carbon-based coating while the Volcano Black dial is enlivened by a fine circular raised motif. The model’s readability is reinforced by oversized hands and hour-markers which are further enhanced by a luminescent coating, and a red central chronograph seconds hand. Designed for adrenaline and adventure aficionados, the Colt Chronograph Automatic Blacksteel stands out with its four ‘rider tabs’, a signature Breitling feature, ensuring both excellent handling of the rotating bezel and optimal protection of the sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides.


Avenger II Seawolf Blacksteel

Water-resistant to the depth of 3,000m, the bold diving watch combines performance and exclusivity in a 1,000-piece limited series, with just 50 models available for the Middle East market. Furnished with a black steel case and yellow dial, this exceptional model flaunts all the distinctive characteristics one would expect from a champion of the abyss. Equipped with an ultra-sturdy 45 mm-diameter case, the case comes with a decompression valve serving to balance out pressure differences both inside and outside the watch as the wearer changes depths. A unidirectional rotating bezel is used to calculate dive times and is fitted with four rider tabs to facilitate handling even with gloves. The striking model also comes with a double-gasket screw-locked crown with protective reinforcements and non-slip grip.
