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 watch 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 is totally water-resistant and functional to a record depth of 1,000 meters. Inside is a SuperQuartz TM movement - another exclusive Breitling creation - which guarantees a precision ten times greater than ordinary quartz movements; it measures times to 1/10 of a second and indicates intermediary times. Limited series of 2,000.
