Breitling Avenger Hurricane

Boasting a 50 mm diameter case, the Breitling Avenger Hurricane revolutionizes watchmaking with its ultra-sturdy and ultra-light case made in a futuristic material named Breitlight®. This oversize chronograph houses a manufacture movement equipped with a 24-hour military type display.

Extreme power, with a 50 mm XXL diameter, a sturdy construction equipped with lateral protective reinforcements and an all-black look enhanced by yellow accents and aviation-inspired stencil-type numerals. It is made to perform at extreme conditions, thanks to the innovative use of Breitlight®, a world-first achievement on a watch case. 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel, but significantly harder, this exclusive high-tech material boasts a number of qualities: exceptional resistance to scratches, traction and corrosion, anti-magnetic, thermal stability, anti-allergic properties – as well as a touch that is warmer than metal and a slightly mottled effect accentuating the originality of the design.
It beats to the rhythm of a highly reliable machine, the new Manufacture Breitling Caliber B12, a self-winding chronograph with a 24-hour display as is customary in the military and among pilots, and chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), a token of superior precision.
Extreme functionality is ensured by a highly legible dial enhanced with luminescent hands and numerals, a thick sapphire crystal glare-proofed on both sides and controls (push-pieces and crown) fitted with a non-slip grip ensuring optimal handling even with gloves.
An exclusive strap combining yellow rubber core and sides with a high-resistance black Military textile fiber exterior ensures comfortable wear.
Water-resistant to 100 m/330 ft and featuring a rotating bezel with rider tabs serving to memorize times, this new Breitling instrument for professionals asserts itself as a compendium of boldness, innovation and performance designed to share every challenge – on land, at sea and in the air.
