BASELNEWS 2007Steel Temper - Breitling Avenger Skyland
Within the Breitling philosophy, the conception of a chronograph is governed by four essential criteria: sturdiness, functionality, precision and aesthetic sophistication. The new Avenger Skyland is a perfect illustration of this approach. Based on the solid Avenger “platform” and reflecting all its attributes, its rugged construction includes a screw-locked crown protected by substantial crown guards, pushpiece reinforcements screwed into steel as well as a thick glare-proofed sapphire crystal.
The result is a case that is particularly shock-resistant and water-resistant to 1,000 feet. This new Breitling chronograph is also distinguished by its user-friendliness that not only guarantees excellent wearer comfort but also smooth handling of the crown and non-slip pushpieces. Meanwhile, the large hands facilitate reading off the time in any conditions. Despite its top-flight performances, the most eye-catching feature of the Avenger Skyland is doubtless its unusual aesthetic appeal. The sophisticated lines are accentuated by the high-tech look of its dial with “stencil” numerals sporting an original design.
The Avenger Skyland also comes in a special version made from blackened steel material achieved by an ultra-resistant carbon nitride-based treatment: a limited series nicknamed “Blacksteel”.
