Swiss luxury watchmaker and aviation chronograph specialist, Breitling has launched the Avenger II Seawolf Blacksteel in the Middle East. Water-resistant to the depth of 3,000m (10,000 ft.), the bold diving watch combines performance and exclusivity in a 1,000-piece limited series, with just 50 models available for the Middle East market.
While most Breitling watches are born to fly, the brand is also reputed among professionals for producing instruments designed to conquer great depths, as is the case with the Avenger II Seawolf Blacksteel. Furnished with a black steel case and yellow dial, this exceptional model flaunts all the distinctive characteristics one would expect from a champion of the abyss.
Equipped with an ultra-sturdy 45 mm-diameter case, the case comes with a decompression valve serving to balance out pressure differences both inside and outside the watch as the wearer changes depths. A unidirectional rotating bezel is used to calculate dive times and is fitted with four rider tabs to facilitate handling even with gloves. The striking model also comes with a double-gasket screw-locked crown with protective reinforcements and non-slip grip.
Commenting on the model’s arrival in the region, Aed Adwan, Breitling Middle East, said: “For our customers wishing to reconcile adventure and style, Breitling Boutiques and stores across the Middle East now offer this professional super-diver model in a limited edition series. Distinguished by an original, technical and powerful look the new model is equipped with a satin-brushed steel case and an engraved bezel which features an ultra-resistant carbon-based black coating”.
Ensuring owners stand out from the crowd, the watch’s dial strikes a strong and bold contrast with its unusual yellow colour. 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), a supreme token of reliability and precision. Exactly what it takes to experience thrilling times in complete safety at 3,000 metres under the sea.
