Hello,

I received this email from Breitling France announcing a new Avenger Seawolf Chrono Blacksteel Limited Edition of 2000 pieces for 2010!
French text:
Version spéciale de l’Avenger Seawolf Chrono – le seul chronographe étanche et fonctionnel à 1000 m de profondeur –, la nouvelle sérié limitée Blacksteel se démarque par son look hors norme, à l’image de ses performances.

Noir le boîtier en acier, soumis à un traitement ultrarésistant à base de carbone. Noire la lunette tournante unidirectionnelle. Noirs la grande couronne vissée et les poussoirs avec relief antidérapant. Noir le cadran, sur lequel se détachent les index et aiguilles luminescents blancs ainsi que les compteurs soulignés de rouge. Avec son allure originale, technique et puissante, la série limitée Avenger Seawolf Chrono Blacksteel se démarque résolument de tous les chronographes de plongée. Mais son plus bel exploit, elle le cache à l’intérieur du boîtier, grâce à son système de poussoirs magnétiques. Ce dispositif breveté et exclusif à Breitling permet d’activer les commandes à travers le métal de la carrure, sans contact mécanique direct. Résultat: alors que la plupart des chronographes ne peuvent pas être utilisés en plongée, l’Avenger Seawolf Chrono est le seul instrument de ce type parfaitement étanche et fonctionnel jusqu’à la profondeur record de 1000 mètres. Pour accompagner les professionnels des grands fonds en toute sécurité, ce chronographe de l’extrême a été doté d’une soupape de décompression et d’une glace saphir antireflet garantissant une lisibilité optimale en toutes circonstances. Son calibre SuperQuartz™ – autre exclusivité Breitling – lui assure une précision dix fois supérieure aux mouvements à quartz ordinaires; il mesure les temps au 1/10 de seconde, avec indication des temps intermédiaires. L’Avenger Seawolf Chrono Blacksteel, éditée à 2000 exemplaires pour le monde entier, est disponible sur bracelet en caoutchouc Diver Pro, noir comme il se doit, ou sur bracelet caoutchouc Ocean Racer à trous. Clin d’oeil aux liens privilégiés de Breitling avec l’aéronautique, son réhaut s’orne d’une rose des vents permettant de mémoriser un cap – sous l’eau comme dans les airs.

Translation in English:
A special version of the Avenger Seawolf Chrono – the only chronograph that is watertight and fully operational at a depth of 1,000 meters (3,300 ft) – the new Blacksteel limited edition is distinguished by its unconventional look matching its exceptional performances.

Black is the keynote here, variously interpreted in the steel case subjected to an ultra-resistant carbon-based treatment; the unidirectional rotating bezel; the large screw-locked crown and non-slip pushpieces; and on the dial base creating a striking backdrop for the white luminescent hands, hour markers and red-rimmed counters. Its original, technical and powerful appearance makes the Avenger Seawolf Chrono Blacksteel limited edition an unmistakable standout model among diver's watches.

But its greatest feat is hidden inside its case, thanks to its magnetic pushpiece system. This exclusive Breitling patented device serves to activate the controls through the metal of the case, without any direct mechanical contact. This means that whereas most chronographs cannot be used when diving, the Avenger Seawolf Chrono is the only instrument of this type to be watertight and fully operational at a record depth of 1,000 meters (3,300 ft).

To accompany professionals to great depths in complete security, this extreme chronograph has been equipped with a decompression valve and a glareproofed sapphire crystal guaranteeing optimal readability in all circumstances. Its SuperQuartz™ caliber – also exclusive to Breitling – ensures a level of accuracy ten times superior to that of standard quartz movements, enabling it to measure times to within 1/10th of a second complete with split-time indications.

The Avenger Seawolf Chrono Blacksteel, issued in a 2,000-piece worldwide limited edition, is available on a – naturally black – Diver Pro rubber strap or on a perforated Ocean Racer strap. In a nod to Breitling's special ties with aviation, its inner bezel ring is adorned with a windrose serving to memorize a course – both underwater or in the air.
