With its black avant-garde case in Breitlight®, its dial with aeronautical-type numerals and its selfwinding Manufacture Breitling caliber powering an exclusive 24-hour display, the new Avenger Hurricane Military limited series proudly displays the assets of an instrument for which prowess is the norm.
On this new version of this superlative-charged chronograph, issued in a 1,000-piece limited edition, Breitling Super Avenger Watch Winder Replica has equipped the black dial with luminescent hands and numerals featuring a slightly patinated yellow-beige color evoking the instruments produced by the brand from the 1940s to the 1960s – a nod to Breitling’s longstanding heritage in the aeronautical and military field. But while the Avenger Hurricane Military thereby gives the distinct impression of having already undertaken a number of missions, it above all asserts itself as a watch built to face both present and future challenges.
Breitling has indeed equipped it with an imposing 50 mm case in Breitlight® – an exclusive high-tech material 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel yet significantly harder. It is endowed with a number of qualities (exceptional resistance to scratching, traction and corrosion, thermal stability, along with anti- magnetic and anti-allergenic properties). This ultra-light and sturdy construction (water-resistant to 100 m / 330 ft) is enhanced by lateral protective reinforcements, a rotating rider tab bezel as well as pushers and crown featuring a non-slip grip ensuring optimal handling, even with gloves.
The crown is knurled to allow easy winding and setting of the time, date and GMT. The crown is protected by subtly chamfered guards that are incorporated to the case.As mentioned earlier, the diameter is 43mm also it has quite a wearable depth of 12.2mm. The weight (head only) is 93 g) Compare this to the 159.2g of its much heavier but also much more water resistant sibling the Avenger Seawolf. This creates the watch a course leader in relaxation. In reality, since the watch is indeed strong and reliable under any circumstances it is remarkable that you do not know you are wearing it.This eliminates the often disparaging remarks of similar watches about wrist fatigue, whereby the watch becomes uncomfortable, bordering on annoying, after extended wear.Options for conceiving your very own Avenger II GMT contain black, blue or cream dials with the selection of batons or numerals. To attach the eye to your self you have range of straps that include Leather, Diver Pro III rubber, Ocean Racer Rubber or a Professional III bracelet in surgical grade 316L steel, to match the case.The above is impressive because it’s self but here are the design elements that personify the Avenger II GMT and also allow it to rank amongst the most desirable GMT timepieces available.The bezel is the element that actually sets this watch apart for me personally. The use of a singular object of LASER engraved steel gives the entire view a unity and stability missing in comparable watches that use a printed aluminium bezel. The resulting aesthetics and interaction are distinctly opulent. The bezel has a solid feel as every timezone hour is incrementally adjusted. The raised quarter markers for the 6, 12, 18 and luminous dot in 24 are wonderfully bevelled providing a strong visual that is reminiscent of a scene stanchion, with the time being played out within its confines.
So as to set a unique and reliable cadence for timing impressive feats, the Avenger Hurricane Military is powered by Manufacture Breitling Caliber B12, a selfwinding chronograph movement displaying the time in an entirely original 24-hour mode, as typically used in the military and among pilots, and chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), a sure token of superior precision. The legibility of the 24 stencil-type aviation-inspired numerals, as well as the chronograph indications, is enhanced by a thick sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides.
The exclusive strap also combines comfort and sturdiness, with a black rubber lining and sides, as well as an exterior in khaki-colored high-resistance Military textile fiber featuring tone-on-tone stitching.
