Breitling Creates Avenger Seawolf Chrono Blacksteel Watch

Feb 10, 2010
At Baselworld 2010, Breitling is to unveil its new Avenger Seawolf Chrono Blacksteel watch. The timepiece is best characterized as robust and highly technical.

The zest of the new Breitling watch is the brand’s exclusive, patented magnetic push-piece system concealed inside the case. The system allows to activate the timepiece through the metal case with no direct mechanical contact. Most chronograph watches cannot be activated while diving, but this system provides the Avenger Seawolf Chrono with the total water-resistance and functionality at a record 1,000-meter depth.

The Breitling watch also boasts the brand’s exclusive thermocompensated SuperQuartz TM movement, Breitling 73 calibre. The outstanding COSC-certified mechanism offers the precision ten times greater than the precision provided by common quartz movements. The SuperQuartz TM movement measures times to 1/10 of a second and indicates intermediary times.

The watch provides a range of useful functions: hours, minutes, seconds, date, split-seconds chronograph, and direction memory.

The steel case of the Avenger Seawolf Chrono measures 45.4 mm in diameter and is provided with ultra-resistant carbon coating. The case incorporates a ratcheted unidirectional rotating bezel. The face of the watch is shielded by a convex sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides.

The Breitling watch demonstrates a flange with the compass card to be used for memorizing directions above and below water.

The volcano black dial is completed with luminescent hour-markers and hands, including the central direct-drive seconds-hand and split-seconds hand. You will notice the 12-hour chronograph counter at 10 o’clock, while the 1/10-second counter is positioned at 2 o’clock. The date window is found at 4 o’clock.

The Breitling Avenger Seawolf Chrono Blacksteel watch, reviewed by, is presented on the brand’s signature black Diver Pro rubber strap or Ocean Racer strap with holes. The bold timepiece will be available in a limited number of 2,000 pieces.
