By TLex First produced in 2002, when it became the deepest production mechanical dive watch with a water-resistance of 3'000m setting the benchmark for other deep divers to measure themselves against, the Avenger Seawolf is still going strong.
It has seen a few cosmetic enhancements over the past 10 years, but still remains one the great dive watches of its day - the original extreme diver! For 2012 Brietling introduced a new BLACKSTEEL version of the ASW with a carbon nitride-based Blacksteel treatment. Today that watch has been further enhanced with sporty touches of YELLOW - what's not to like?!
From BREITLING A very special series - 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 glare-proofed 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 self-winding movement that is officially chronometer-certified - like all Breitling movements. Avenger Seawolf Blacksteel Code Yellow: power in action.
