While most Breitling watches are born to fly, the brand is also reputed among professionals for its instruments designed to conquer great depths, such as the Avenger II Seawolf. Water-resistant to 3,000 m (10,000 ft), this model flaunts all the distinctive characteristics one would expect from a champion of the abyss.

An ultra-sturdy 45 mm-diameter case with a decompression valve serving to balance out pressure differences inside and outside the watch. A unidirectional rotating bezel to calculate dive times, fitted with four rider tabs to facilitate handling even with gloves. A double-gasket screw-locked crown with protective reinforcements and non-slip grip. Luminescent-coated oversized hands and hour-markers. A thick cambered sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides. For those wishing to reconcile adventure and style, Breitling now offers this professional super-diver model in a 1,000-piece limited edition distinguished by an original, technical and powerful look.

The satin-brushed steel case and the engraved bezel feature an ultra-resistant carbon-based black coating. The dial strikes a strong and bold contrast with its unusual yellow color. In addition to the black rubber strap, the Avenger II Seawolf Blacksteel is also available with an ultra-sturdy high-tech fabric Military-type strap, or a version combining a Military exterior with a rubber core. At the heart of this deep-sea Breitling beats a mechanical selfwinding heart chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute.
