Everything about this timepiece radiates power and robustness: the broad stepped bezel, the sturdy ringed chronograph pushers, the massive screw-down crown with crown guards, the brightly lumed Arabic numerals, the brushed finish, and the leather strap with an industrial-looking embossed pattern.
The case is coated in DLC (diamond-like carbon), which adds to the military look of the timepiece. This coating increases the surface hardness and is also more anthracite in color than pure black, making it a better match with the watch’s khaki green components. Under the watch’s hood is a COSC-certified Breitling 13 caliber, which offers a 48-hour power reserve. Overall, the ref. V13317’s design is in harmony with its functionality.
