Breitling Squeezes in 3 Time Zone indicators in Chronoliner Blacksteel

TRIPLE THREAT. Two time zone indicators are quite common for pilot watches these days


Breitling raised the stakes with three time zone indicators in the Chronoliner Blacksteel watch. The black-on-black scheme follows the original design of last year’s Chronoliner, which harkens back to pilot watches from the ’50s and ’60s.

The pairing between a black stainless steel case and a black ceramic bezel makes for a striking combination, topped with a rubber Aero Classic bracelet that looks like stainless steel mesh.

The watch’s ultimate functionality, nonetheless, lies on the red-tipped central hand that denotes the second time zone, while the rotatable bezel with its own set of markers indicates the third.

The Chronoliner Blacksteel is definitely a recommended option for true globetrotters.
