Meet Breitling Blackbird Chronograph Limited Edition Blacksteel Watch

Apr 20, 2010
This year, the famous watchmaking house Breitling has announced its new captivating watch, called Blackbird Chronograph Limited Edition Blacksteel. The watch is proposed with a stainless steel case, which grabs attention with its high-tech Diamond Like Carbon coating.

The new Breitling chronograph watch is framed by a bezel, featuring a DLC treatment with an extremely attractive matte finish. The latter helps to avoid the risk of scratching. The case, the crown and the pushers are also DLC-coated.

Similar to all watches from this brand, the Blackbird is designed around a manufactory-made self-winding chronograph movement - Caliber 44, officially chronometer-certified by the COSC. Embellished with 38 jewels, the movement features a balance wheel, moving back and forth at 28,800 vibrations per hour. The mechanism provides the functions of 1/4th of a second chronograph, with 30-minute and 12-hour totalizers.

The movement is incorporated into a steel case, which measures 43.70 mm in diameter. It is endowed with a screw-locked crown, as well as a bidirectional rotating and ratcheted bezel. The case is armed with a cambered sapphire crystal, featuring an anti-reflective treatment on both sides. The case back of the Breitling watch is crafted from polished steel and engraved with a limited edition number. The water-resistance of the model is ensured down to 300 meters.

The black dial is completed with red and white contrasting hour-markers and hands. The date is displayed through a panorama exhibition window positioned at 12 o'clock.

The Breitling Blackbird Chronograph Limited Edition Blacksteel watch is affixed to a Diver Pro II or Ocean Racer rubber strap, closed with the Blacksteel pushbutton folding clasp. Alternatively, it can be mounted on a Diver Pro II rubber strap, finished with a carbon treated tang-type buckle.

The new Breitling watch has been issued in a limited series of 2000 items.
