The most remarkable feature of the Breitling Avenger Seawolf Chrono Blacksteel, its magnetic pushpiece system, is hidden inside its case.

With this exclusive, patented device, the chronograph (stopwatch) can be activated through the metal case without any direct mechanical contact. As such, unlike most chronographs which cannot be used when diving — this can be operated underwater.

The Avenger Seawolf Chrono is the only chronograph of its kind, that’s totally water-resistant and functional to a record depth of 1,000 meters. Inside is Breitling’s SuperQuartz caliber 73 COSC-certified movement — another exclusive Breitling creation — which guarantees a precision ten times greater than ordinary quartz movements. The quartz movement is thermocompensated and one of the most accurate quartz wristwatch motors available. It measures times to 1/10 of a second and indicates intermediary times. Limited series of 2,000.

Crafted from stainless steel, the 45.4 mm diameter case has been coated with a black DLC treatment. Featuring a “Volcano” black dial, with red and white highlight colors, the watch functions include hours, minutes, seconds, date, split-seconds chronograph, direction memory via compass points printed on the flange and in conjunction with the unidirectional rotating bezel.

Presented on a black rubber Diver Pro rubber or perforated Ocean Racer. Retail is approximately $5,000.
