The Ultimate Deep Sea Chronograph
Breitling Avenger Seawolf Chrono men’s watch is a part of Breitling watches Aeromarine series. This exclusive timepiece, from the prestigious Swiss manufacturer, has some extraordinary features, which cannot be found in many watches on the market. Namely, it is the only chronograph that can withstand massive water pressure and it can function accurately at a depth of 1,000 meters!
This unique ability is made possible through the use of original and innovational technology that was designed by Swiss watchmakers. This technical novelty is based on the magnetic pushpiece, which enables divers to start the chronograph at such depths since this feature is controlled through the metal of the case. This means that the activation of chronograph can be achieved without contact between the movement and the push piece.
Braitling added this innovation, in order to insure that no water will penetrate inside the watch. Therefore, Breitling Avenger Seawolf Chrono is a quartz watch, since the magnetic pushpiece system would affect mechanical watches.
Careful Planning to Overcome Challenges
There were many challenges and obstacles to overcome in order to insure that this timepiece will have a perfect function in such extreme conditions. Researchers from Federal Institute in Lausanne were hired to design a perfect geometry for the case. The result of these tests was a decision to include quite oversized components. The crystal of Breitling Avenger Seawolf Chrono is 4.8 mm thick and the caseback is almost as thick as the crystal (4.75 mm).
Another significant problem was solved by using a safety valve, that enables this model to balance substantial differences between the outside pressure and the pressure inside the case. Whenever the internal pressure reaches about 3 bars, this cleverly designed valve releases the pressure and helium in order to prevent the case from blowing up.
Breitling Avenger Seawolf Chrono has a sturdy case made of steel and a screw-locked crown. The crown and the pushpieces are really easy to handle, even when wearing gloves. In order to insure optimal readability in every possible situation, this Breitling model also has oversized hands and a glareproof sapphire crystal.
Another special feature of Avenger Seawolf Chrono is the yachting graduation that enables counting down ten minutes prior to a regata start. The extremely precise and accurate Breitling Caliber 73 Super Quartz measures times to 1/10 of a second and it provides a split-second function.
