Chronotechna Black Hole Watch

Sometimes a simple watch design is the most fetching in a sea of timepieces that look like Picasso paintings crammed with every feature imaginable. Chronotechna’s main goal was to create a watch with a face that’s as close to the darkness of a black hole that the human eye can see.

Chronotechna’s watch is able to absorb 99.9% of all incident light, addressing various light suppression and management issues, including problems underwater or with blinding sunlight. According to Chronotechna, their aerospace super-black coating, originally developed for satellite-borne blackbody calibration systems, is a contender for the world record of darkest man-made substance. In addition to having an extremely dark watch face, this timepiece is made with marine-grade 316L stainless steel to make it durable even in the harshest environments, DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating for scratch-resistance, the latest Grade X1 Super-Luminova, and sapphire-coated crystal. It has a Swiss automatic self-winding movement from Sellita, a 38-hour power reserve, and premium handmade Italian leather. This limited edition 100-meter water-resistant watch is set to hit digital shelves in 2019.
