Watch Review: Breitling’s Avenger Seawolf Blacksteel Code Yellow

AVENGER IN BLACK. Breitling’s newest model, the Avenger Seawolf Blacksteel Code Yellow, may have a name that’s a mouthful, but it’s undoubtedly cool.

And each part has a purpose — Avenger is for the power of the watch, Seawolf is for its water resistance of up to 3,000 meters, Code Yellow is for the original touches of yellow that enliven the seconds hand, the inner bezel and the Automatic inscription on the dial. Last but not the least, Blacksteel is for the black case that is made through a high-resistance carbon-based treatment specifically for this watch.

Completed with a large screw-locked crown with non-slip grip, the watch is also protected by substantial lateral reinforcements. It has an ultrareadable dial with oversized hands and large luminescent accents. The face’s sapphire crystal is glareproofed and a security valve ensures pressure balance between the exterior and interior case. It comes with either rubber Ocean Racer (perforated) or Diver Pro (with raised central ridge) straps.
