Breitling launches Avenger Hurricane Military

The new Avenger Hurricane Military limited series from Breitling proudly displays the assets of an instrument for which prowess is the norm.

True to its name, the product has a black avant-garde case in Breitlight, a dial with aeronautical-type numerals and a selfwinding Manufacture Breitling calibre powering an exclusive 24-hour display.

On this new version of this superlative-charged chronograph, issued in a 1,000-piece limited edition, Breitling has equipped the black dial with luminescent hands and numerals featuring a slightly patinated yellow-beige colour 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 antimagnetic 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.

So as to set a unique and reliable cadence for timing impressive feats, the Avenger Hurricane Military is powered by Manufacture Breitling Calibre 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-coloured high-resistance Military textile fibre featuring tone-on-tone stitching.
