Breitling Avenger Seawolf Blacksteel Code Yellow Review 
  Just in time kick off 2013, Breitling released this beast at the end of last year. This Breitling is striking to say the least. The blacked out case, white contrasting lume, and yellow accents makes the Code Yellow demand a second look. Being released as a limited edition of only 1000 pieces, it is sure to be in high demand by Breitling enthusiast in 2013. Using Breitling's caliber 17, built off of the ETA 2824-2 platform. As expected it is COSC certified chronometer automatics movement, with an estimated 42 hour power reserve. The Avenger Seawolf Blacksteel Code Yellow is offered on a black rubber strap, with a lug width of 22mm for any strap changes. This is going to be a great watch for those individuals willing to pay the limited edition price tag. W&R will follow up on the pricing in the very near future.
A very special series - Press Release:                    Its name says it all. Avenger for its power and its unfailing sturdiness. Seawolf for water resistance to the fabulous depth of 3,000 meters (10,000 ft). Blacksteel for the black case achieved by a highly resistant carbon-based treatment. And Code Yellow for the extremely original touches of yellow enlivening the seconds hand, the inner bezel, and the Automatic inscription on the dial. With this 1,000-piece limited edition, Breitling has created an exceptional instrument matching peerless performances with an unusual appearance. Born to face up to the most extreme conditions, this professional diver’s watch has what it takes to accompany top- level feats in deep waters. An ergonomic case sporting a design based on digital simulations. A unidirectional rotating bezel. A large screw-locked crown with non-slip grip, protected by substantial lateral reinforcements. An ultra-readable dial with oversized hands and large luminescent accents. A thick sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides. A security valve serving to balance out the differences between the case exterior and interior. The ultra-sporty and ultra- contemporary design is enhanced by highly original stencil-type numerals – echoing Breitling aeronautical vocation – and by a rubber strap. Inside this all- black super-diving model beats a mechanical selfwinding movement that is officially chronometer-certified – like all Breitling movements.
