With the ribbon-cutting ceremony held the other day, Breitling’s first flagship store in Asia has begun to open. Soon after the new store opened, we visited here in Beijing’s Wangfu Central. According to the clerk, there are more than 200 Breitling masterpieces covering the entire series in the new store, including the latest new series of aviation chronograph 8 and limited edition timepieces, which are all on sale. It also includes the popular aviation chronograph 8 B01 chronograph and the second generation of the fiery marine culture. It can be said that this time is a good time for friends who love brand watches. Let’s take a look at the more special Breitling Aviation Chronograph 8 chronograph black steel among the new products:
Black steel (Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coated steel) is not a new material made by adding carbon to steel. Instead, a black film with a carbon structure is added to the surface of the steel material. The purpose is to increase the corrosion resistance of the steel and protect the watch to a certain extent. In addition, after the steel material becomes black, it brings a refreshing visual impact. It looks more unique and beautiful, leaving a deep impression.
The 43 mm black steel case is equipped with a two-way rotating bezel, and the wearer can easily calculate the short time interval by simply rotating the time scale on the bezel to the appropriate position before or after the hands. The ratchet-type rotating outer ring has a total of 60 grooves, and each groove represents a minute scale.
The chronograph button and crown are located on one side of the watch. They are also made of black steel. After detailed processing, the operation feel is superior. The crown is engraved with the brand “B” logo, and the surrounding is made of non-slip texture, making the central time and calendar adjustment easier and more convenient.
Compared with the steel model, the black steel chronograph looks more pure, because the case and the dial are more similar in color. Showing the overall aesthetic characteristics. The Arabic numerals and the central hand are coated with luminous parts, so you can watch the time even in a dark environment. The two time dials are placed at 12 and 6 o’clock respectively, and the small seconds dial is placed at 9 o’clock, which ensures that the seconds are visually displayed when the timekeeping function is not used. At 3 o’clock, the day of the week and the calendar display window give the watch a practical function.
Like other aviation chronograph 8 chronographs, the watch is screwed into the bottom to ensure internal safety. It is equipped with the Breitling 13 type movement certified by the Swiss Official Observatory (COSC), and is automatically wound with a one-way ball bearing rotor, with a power reserve of more than 42 hours.
The rich black leather strap with beige stitching at the end is beautiful and easy to wear.
It is equipped with a pin buckle, also made of black steel, engraved with the Breitling English logo and LOGO pattern.
