I am a very happy owner of an Avenger Code Yellow. The watch caught my eye in a store window and I just had to have it!

I saw someone asking for pictures about this watch so I hope my pictures will be ok :D

The packaging was just superb. I told the guy at the dealer he could put the watch in the box so I could unpack it at home. Driving home I was really looking forward to it, just taking my time to unpack it was great!

Image

The black dial with the yellow is a perfect match! The Lighting and depending on how you look at it the dial sometimes turns blue witch is nice and is probably caused by the coating on the crystal.

Image

The size of the watch is perfect for me atleast. Its not to big and still big enough to be a real eye catcher! (45.4 mm diameter)

Image

I am impressed with all the detail they put in the watch. It's a real rugged construction and the pushbuttons and crown look well crafted.

Image

Image

It is a limited edition, only 1,000 pieces were made. For me 1,000 pieces really is limited, unlike some watches that get limited editions of 15,000 pieces or more. This one is 90/1000.

The rubber strap is comfortable to wear and I like the way it looks with the watch itself. At this moment I dont want anything else.

I am not the best in writing reviews, I hope the pictures speak for themself!

Great looking piece, enjoy it.

But I would have chosen a deployment clasp. :wink:

Many Congratulations Lex,

I'm not a fan of yellow at all (cars, motorbikes, clothes, house decoration, etc) but your new Code Yellow is stunning. Just the right amount of yellow splashes here and there which enhance the rest of the watch.

Well done.

I gave in to temptation and offer pictures as proof of life only. Lex's pic's are outstanding... :bow:

Only difference, is mine came with the pushbutton folding clasp buckle. Really like the ratcheting, fine-adjustability for daily use.

Strange... That the Breitling website only lists the steel bracelet and the Ocean Racer rubber strap as options, when I've only seen real world Code Yellows with the Diver Pro II rubbber strap...

Anybody have one/seen one with the steel bracelet? I guess you could put whatever strap you like on it.
