For the year 2012, the Italian leader in sport watchmaking industry, Sector, has prepared a new version of their Blackeagle Chronograph 46 mm Watch. The new Blackeagle features the same functions as the previous model, but it comes with a modern, redesigned dial details.
Sector offered two models of the Blackeagle Chronograph 46 mm Watch. The first one boasts a charming white dial (the referent number is R3271689001), while the second version comes with a sleek, black dial (the referent number is R3271689002).
This year’s models are also equipped with Citizen Miyota quartz chronograph movements like the older versions.
Each of these two newcomers is housed in an oversized masculine round case with the diameter of 45 mm and the thickness of 11 mm. The robust case is crafted from high grade stainless steel and incorporates a brushed and polished bezel. On the right side of the case, there is a protected crown and two chronograph push buttons. The dial window is coated with a hardened mineral crystal which provides high scratch-resistance. The new men’s wristwatch from Sector also has a great screw-in case back. This watch has a decent water resistance of 50 meters (165 feet), but it is better not to wear it during water activities.
The most visible changes are on its dial. The dial features bold Arabic numerals at the quarter hour and large hour markers. There is also three counters which are traditionally located at two, six and ten o’clock positions. A small date window is placed at the four o’clock position. Below the numeral twelve, there is an eagle icon which was the symbol of Sector and the original ambassador for values such as freedom, nature and strength. Finally, a 60 minute scale set at the outer rim nicely rounds the dial. The inscription BLACKEAGLE in white letters is placed at the bottom of the dial. There is one more detail: the first quarter-hour on the model with black dial is colored in a striking red. In my opinion, this model is more attractive but the choice is yours.
Sector Blackeagle Chronograph 46 mm Watch 2012 is attached to the wearer’s wrist with an extremely comfortable black leather strap. It is 22 mm wide and fastens with a deployment clasp. Whether your choice will be a model with black or with white dial, the retail price is the same – approximately $200.
