Breitling Avenger Bandit

Inspired from the world of Naval Aviation and featuring a gray ‘stealth’ look, the new Avenger Bandit embodies daring feats and extreme missions.

The light, ultra-sturdy titanium case displays a generous 45 mm diameter enhanced by protective lateral reinforcements; its satin-brushed finishes eliminate any undesirable glinting in the heat of action.
The dial is distinguished by its gray color with tone-on-tone counters accentuated by a finely snailed raised motif; it features vigorous aviation-inspired stencil-type numerals, with a luminescent coating ensuring excellent visibility further enhanced by the thick sapphire crystal glare-proofed on both sides. The bezel, also adorned with engraved stencil-type numerals, stands out with its four rider tabs (a classic Breitling signature feature) serving to memorize times.
The non-slip grip of the screw-locked crown and the chronograph push-pieces ensures optimal handling, even with gloves. The titanium caseback is adorned with a conversion scale for the main units.
An authentic instrument for professionals, the Avenger Bandit is equipped with a brand-new strap secured by a titanium folding clasp and combining a sophisticated rubber tread on the wrist side with an anthracite high-tech Military textile fiber exterior. The result is impeccable resistance teamed with maximum comfort and flexibility.
Water-resistant to 300 m/1,000 ft, this gem of power and technicality houses a selfwinding chronograph movement: Breitling Caliber 13, officially chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), a token of superior reliability and precision.
