I’m quite fond of the Chronoliner watch that was launched last year by Breitling. It wasn’t Breitling’s first vintage-inspired watch, of course – there’s the entire Transocean collection for that – but I thought that the Chronoliner offered a better mix of vintage-inspired looks and modern toughness and reliability. At this point, I would like to draw your attention to the ceramic bezel, which as I’m sure most readers will know, is virtually scratch- and fade-proof. Plus, the bezel rotates, which means the Chronoliner is capable of tracking up to three time zones simultaneously – a big plus for functionality. For this year, Breitling has updated the looks with an all-black version called – quite aptly, I might add – the Breitling Chronoliner Blacksteel.
