Black watches are fast becoming a major trend in 2016 with their masculine and versatile appeal persuading more watchmakers to join the dark side. Breitling is the latest to come out with a new black piece in the form of the Colt Chronograph Automatic Blacksteel – a beautifully crafted watch made for the adventure man.
Born from military roots, the new watch features a robust 44mm satin-brushed steel case finished with a high-resistance carbon coating. Within the case beats a self-winding chronograph movement which is certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute) to satisfy the astute requisites of superior precision and reliability.
A Volcano Black dial meanwhile shows off three separate dials at 9 o’clock,12 o’clock and 6 o’clock as the 1/4 seconds, 30 minute and 12 hour counters. A date window sits at the 3 o’clock marker. Oversized hands and hour markers are finished with luminescent coating to ensure visibility extends well into the evening.
To ensure that the watch can keep up with the most adventurous of men in this world, it comes with an option of either a rubber strap or a reinforced military grade fabric strap to suit any need.
The watch rounds things out nicely with a water resistance rating of 200m and an impressive power reserve of 42-hours.
