It’s a blackout for Breitling’s latest Blacksteel Chronoliner

Chronoliner Blacksteel

Breitling has gone all-black with its latest Chronoliner. The new model has a black ceramic bezel, black steel case, along with a matching black dial and black rubber strap.

The triple timezone pilot chronograph has a steel case coated with a high-resistance carbon-based treatment. Its satin-brushed surfaces contrast with the shiny, scratch-resistant ceramic bezel.

The darkness stretches across the dial, featuring tone-on-tone counters, as well as on the original rubber strap.

The white and silver indications stand out against the black background, making it legible for aviators.

The case is water-resistant to 100 m (330 ft) and its back bears a depiction of the signature Breitling plane motif.

Commercial pilots will appreciate the chronograph to measure flight times and a triple timezone display to juggle with the time around the world. The second timezone in 24-hour mode (useful for distinguishing between day and night) is indicated by a red-tipped central hand, while the bidirectional rotating bezel with its star-shaped cut-out gives a third timezone,

The watch is driven by a selfwinding Caliber 24 chronograph movement.
