Breitling’s latest timepiece has been nicknamed the Dark (K)night of the Oceans. That’s because the piece is the world’s only chronograph to be water-resistant and fully functional at a depth of 2,000 meters (6,600 ft) without any risk of water seeping in. Already available in a polished steel version, the Superocean Chronograph M2000 now appears in a 250-piece limited series featuring a satin-brushed steel case with a black color achieved by a high-resistance carbon-based treatment. The matching dial ensures optimal readability with oversized hands and hour-markers accentuated by a luminescent coating. The black rubber-molded unidirectional ratcheted rotating bezel guarantees an excellent grip.
The sturdy case, equipped with a built-in decompression valve to vent helium, is fitted with a 4 mm thick glareproofed sapphire crystal. The SuperQuartz movement, chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute) ensures a degree of precision ten times higher than that of ordinary quartz. The Superocean Chronograph M2000 Blacksteel is equipped with an exclusive white-edged black leather strap.
A true champion shining in the utter darkness of the ocean depths!
