Its name says it all. Avenger for its power and its unfailing sturdiness. Seawolf for water resistance to the fabulous depth of 3,000 meters (10,000 ft). Blacksteel for the black case achieved by a highly resistant carbon based treatment. And Code Yellow for the extremely original touches of yellow enlivening the seconds hand, the inner bezel, and the Automatic inscription on the dial.
With this 1,000 piece limited edition, Breitling has created an exceptional instrument matching peerless performances with an unusual appearance. Born to face up to the most extreme conditions, this professional diver’s watch has what it takes to accompany top level feats in deep waters. An ergonomic case sporting a design based on digital simulations. A unidirectional rotating bezel. A large screw locked crown with non slip grip, protected by substantial lateral reinforcements. An ultra readable dial with oversized hands and large luminescent accents. A thick sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides. A security valve serving to balance out the differences between the case exterior and interior. The ultra sporty and ultra contemporary design is enhanced by highly original stencil type numerals echoing Breitling aeronautical vocation and by a rubber strap. Inside this all black super diving model beats a mechanical selfwinding movement that is officially chronometer certified like all Breitling movements. Avenger Seawolf Blacksteel Code Yellow: power in action. ■
