Breitling Adds “Code Yellow” Model to Avenger Seawolf Blacksteel Line

p150Breitling’s Avenger Seawolf Blacksteel model — a divers’ watch with 3,000-meter water resistance and a carbon-treated black steel case — was one of WatchTime.com’s most popular “Watches to Watch” of recent months. This week, Breitling announced the release of a new model, limited to 1,000 pieces, called Avenger Seawolf Blacksteel Code Yellow.

The “Code Yellow” nickname refers to the yellow detailing, on the seconds hand, the inner bezel and the automatic inscription on the dial. Like the original model, the Code Yellow watch has a screw-locked crown, unidirectional rotating divers’ bezel, domed, glareproof sapphire crystal, and a COSC-certified chronometer movement, Breitling Caliber 17. The watch is available with either of two rubber straps, a perforated “Ocean Racer” ($5,420) or a raised-ridge “Diver Pro II” ($4,720).
