This black or blue bezel, matching the dial, is teamed with a steel case that is satin-finished on top and polished on its sides and crown. The eminently masculine, technical and powerful look continues on the steel bracelet with its extremely rugged construction, or on the black or blue rubber strap with raised central motif, Breitling signature or a row of holes.
