The super-practical and robust SuperOcean M2000 toolwatch from Breitling gets a new small-batch limited edition in Blacksteel of only 250 pieces with the SuperOcean M2000 Blacksteel! This is a nice little rare gem that you won’t see on anyone else’s wrist. The claim to fame for this watch is the 2000m water resistance which allowing fully functional use of the chronograph pushers. This tech was carried over from the original Avenger Seawolf Chronograph which allowed use of the pushers down to 1000m.
Dark (k)night of the oceans
The world’s only chronograph to be water-resistant and fully functional at a depth of 2,000 meters (6,600 ft), the Superocean Chronograph M2000 plunges into the abyss in an entirely black-clad limited series sporting a powerful technical look entirely on a par with its performance.
As well as mastering the skies, Breitling has also played a premier role in the conquest of great depths by developing outstanding instruments for diving professionals. Witness the Superocean Chronograph M2000 equipped with an exclusive magnetic pushpiece system. This patented device enables the chronograph controls to be handled via the metal of the case, making this model the world’s only chronograph to be water-resistant and entirely functional to the fabulous depth of 2,000 meters (6,600 ft), without any risk of water seeping in. Already available in a polished steel version, the Superocean Chronograph M2000 now appears in a 250-piece limited series featuring a satin-brushed steel case with a black color achieved by a high-resistance carbon-based treatment. The matching dial ensures optimal readability with oversized hands and hour-markers accentuated by a luminescent coating. The black rubber-molded unidirectional ratcheted rotating bezel guarantees an excellent grip. The sturdy case, equipped with a built-in decompression valve to vent helium, is fitted with a 4 mm thick glareproofed sapphire crystal. The SuperQuartz™ movement, chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute) ensures a degree of precision ten times higher than that of ordinary quartz. The Superocean Chronograph M2000 Blacksteel is equipped with an exclusive white-edged black leather strap. A true champion shining in the utter darkness of the ocean depths.
