This is an exclusive first look at a new Breitling limited edition version of the Avenger Seawolf dive-style watch called the Avenger Seawolf Code Yellow. There isn’t too much different here compared to the standard Avenger Seawolf aside from the black-coated steel case and yellow accents, but the design certainly his a sweet spot mixing military style with serious diver functionality. Breitling watch lovers will also recognize that the Avenger Seawolf Code Yellow is a modern three-hand version of the popular older limited edition Breitling Super Avenger Blacksteel Chronograph watch (pictured below).
The Breitling Avenger Seawolf Code Yellow is 45mm wide and is water resistant to 3,000 meters. Not that you’ll ever need to dive that deep, but Breitling likes to give you the option (but even James Bond won’t be going anywhere close to that depth without being in a machine). This style of watch is quite different than that majority of highly polished steel Breitling watches that you typically see. The all brushed, all black case has a tactical look that when combined with the stencil-style numerals gives the watch a very military/special ops feel. Breitling throws in a hint of yellow for needed style. The design is very satisfying as a fashion or functional object.
As a diver the Avenger Seawolf has a rotating diver’s bezel and lots of lume on the hands and hour markers. The dial is extremely easy to read, but fully detailed with markings. Breitling calls the dial color “Volcano Black.” Inside the watch is Breitling’s caliber 17 movement which is a high-grade decorated and polished Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic that is regulated and has been COSC Chronometer certified.
The Breitling Avenger Seawolf Code Yellow watch is available with two rubber strap options. First is the popular Breitling Diver Pro II strap with a buckle, and second is the Ocean Racer strap with deployant clasp. The latter is has little portholes and is going to be more desirable as it comes with the fantastic deployant – both again are rubber. Breitling will produce 1,000 pieces of the limited edition Avenger Seawolf Code Yellow Watch with a price of $4,720 on the Diver Pro II strap or $5,420 on the Ocean Racer strap.
