The Swiss brand has recently reintroduced its Avenger Seawolf “professional” diver as a limited edition model. While normally available only in polished stainless steel, this new watch comes in a special, hardened steel body that, thanks to the high concentration of carbon within its surface, looks almost black. The 2013 Breitling Avenger Seawolf Blacksteel Code Yellow features a winning combination of colors and textures that make it an almost ideal watch for a person looking for a military-styled diver with a character.
Probably inspired by a similarly named family of antimagnetic timekeepers from *ahem* another Swiss-based watchmaker, the new Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon DeepQuest (Ref. DM3000A-SCJ-BK) still has a selling point of its own. Even two of them if you count in the “wow” factor. The first selling point is its impressive water resistance rating of whole three thousand meters (almost ten thousand feet,) which makes it an impressive homage to a true old-school professional diving instrument.
The American-based brand is getting ready to start selling the automatic Deep Blue Depthmaster 3000. As you have already guessed, it features an almost mind-numbing water resistance rating of 3000 meters! Tested for water resistance in compliance with ISO 6425 standard (it means that the watch must withstand the claimed water pressure of 300 ATM +25 percent more to qualify for the status of a “professional diving tool,”) the 3KM looks like a real professional diving companion that even serious Swiss and Japanese brands could be proud of.
