Breitling Airwolf Raven Review


Breitling Airwolf Raven Watch Review

  W&R always been a big fan of the Airwolf, being a non-dorky multi-functioning tool watch. Now enter the Breitling Airwolf Raven (ref A78364), with a new intimidating look. The biggest aesthetic change over the standard Airwolf model is the black rubber bezel and the subtle touch of black molded rubber integrated into the pushers. The dial has a nice depth, with the vertical pinstripe texturing. The Airwolf Raven of course still has the bidirectional bezel, with slide rule for calculations. 
  All digital operations are accessible through the crown and activated via the pushers. Simply turn the crown to put on desired function, pull crown out to adjust settings. Some of the functions include: chronograph, countdown, GMT, UTC, digital perpetual calendar, and EOL (end of life) indicator for the battery. 
  A few final points that should not be overlooked. This Airwolf Raven is equipped with NVG (night vision goggles) back-lighting system, making it compatible with night vision goggle reading. That is cool! The caseback has the turbine shaped construction, acting as a resonance chamber for the alarms and other function indications. Lastly, the watch is powered by Breitling’s very well know SuperQuartz thermo-compensated Caliber 78. It is COSC certified and is extremely accurate, not to lose more than -15 seconds per year.

Pros - Top notch fit/finish, easy to use functions, SuperQuartz Caliber 78

Consideration - Dial is busy as to be expected with all the functions
