Swiss watchmaker Breitling SA releases the new Avenger II SeaWolf Blacksteel
June 30, 2016: Water-resistant to the depth of 3,000 m (10,000 ft), the Avenger II Seawolf by Breitling combines performance and exclusivity in a 1,000-piece limited series with a black steel case and yellow dial.
The Avenger II Seawolf features more than just water resistance, such as an ultra-sturdy 45 mm-diameter case with a decompression valve serving to balance out pressure differences inside and outside the watch and a unidirectional rotating bezel to calculate dive times, fitted with four rider tabs to facilitate handling even with gloves.
The watch has a double-gasket screw-locked crown with protective reinforcements and non-slip grip, luminescent-coated oversized hands and hour-markers and a thick cambered sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides. As well as the satin-brushed steel case and the engraved bezel that features an ultra-resistant carbon-based black coating.
The dial strikes a strong contrast with its 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 self-winding heart chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute). Breitling now offers this model in a 1,000-piece limited edition collection.
