Breitling continues the black trend with another Blacksteel release in the Avenger II Seawolf Blacksteel. This is a badass military style watch with a cool yellow dial. The yellow dial is a bit deeper than the previous yellow dials I have seen from Breitling and looks awesome against the blacksteel case. This puppy is limited to 1,000 pieces.

3,000 meters under the sea

Water-resistant to the fabulous depth of 3,000 m (10,000 ft), the Avenger II Seawolf by Breitling combines performance and exclusivity in a 1,000-piece limited series with a black steel case and yellow dial. The new face of prowess.

Breitling has finally released their Navitimer 46 in Blacksteel, a move that I believe many were waiting for and expecting. This is just another step in Breitling bringing the black steel material to more and more pieces in the range. If you’ve been in a Breitling boutique lately, you’ll notice the growing trend of black watches in their line-up, and some of the limited editions are looking pretty incredible.


The legend turns black
A highly exclusive version of the large-size Navitimer, Breitling’s “Navitimer 46 Blacksteel” is distinguished by its all-black exterior, its two-counter dial, its black oscillating weight and its new strap featuring an aircraft tire-tread pattern.

Chronoliner Limited Series

An instrument in gold
With its timeless look and its triple timezone chronograph, the Chronoliner has asserted itself as the authentic flight captain’s watch. It offers a blend of luxury and performance in a red gold limited series that will appeal to aviation aficionados, whether in aircraft cockpits or cabins.


The Chronoliner Limited Edition is nice piece of kit and this 250 piece limited edition is presented in Red Gold and a Rubber Aero Classic strap.

Breitling launches a cool Black Steel SuperOcean 44, dubbed the Breitling Superocean 44 Special. This is a sweet piece of kit. It features a full ceramic bezel, unlike the ‘inset’ bezels that Omega is doing. I like this look and I think Breitling got this very right, similar to how Rolex got it right with the Daytona ceramic bezel. Now I’m not a huge fan of black steel because I don’t like how it wears over time, but it does look really awesome on this watch. Nice release from Breitling, though I think a superocean in forged carbon case would be the ultimate piece.


Superocean 44 Special

The ocean pilot
Black and white aviator-type watches ensuring excellent readability are well-known instruments and divers are now being treated to their very own “ocean pilot” featuring a black steel case, black ceramic bezel and a black dial bearing large luminescent indications enabling them to plunge safely to a depth of 1,000 m (3,300 ft). The art of combining originality and efficiency.

Mays-Berlin is an outstanding German strapmaker that I just reviewed a couple straps from, and they also offered a 10% off coupon code (Use coupon code ‘paneraisource’ at checkout on their website) that is good on every vintage strap on their site! Its a great opportunity to try out their stuff and if you check out my review of Mays-Berlin, I think you’ll see that they are indeed a fantastic value and truly superb strapmaker.
