BREITLING UPDATES THE AVENGER COLLECTION WITH SUPERSONIC STRENGTH AND FULL-THROTTLE FUNCTIONALITY

For over 20 years, Breitling’s Avenger has been at the forefront of airborne adventure. Built for jet pilots, it’s a watch that can take on the toughest cockpits and keep coming back for more. But you don’t need air force credentials to appreciate its bold design, exceptional resilience, and next-level functionality.

New Breitling Avenger Collection

Breitling’s ties to flying date back to the 1930s, when third-generation founder Willy Breitling formed the HUIT Aviation Department, dedicated to creating precision aircraft instruments and pilots’ chronographs. Its expertise in the then-emerging field of military aviation carried through into the birth of commercial air travel and beyond, resulting in such renowned timepieces as the Navitimer, the AVI Co-Pilot, the Aerospace, the Emergency, and the Avenger. No other watch brand has a more impressive and enduring link to aviation.

With this redesign, Breitling is meeting the demands of the skies with a redesign centered on sleek aviation detailing, wear-resistant materials, and the addition of the powerhouse Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 to its chronograph models.

 “The Avenger was created to stand up to the relentless conditions of a jet cockpit and to support pilots in demanding aerial maneuvers. Its redesign demanded nothing less,” says Breitling CEO Georges Kern. “This collection pairs all the performance with sophisticated modern aviation style.” The new range comes in three formats. A 44 mm chronograph, a 44 mm automatic GMT, and a 42 mm automatic. All pieces come with a choice of military leather strap with folding pin buckle or three-row stainless-steel bracelet with micro-adjustable folding clasp. Each has a 300 m water resistance. And whether you can pull off a barrel roll or not, you’ll appreciate their easy-grip functionality and corrosion-resistant construction.

The force behind the new Avenger chronograph is the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 that provides approximately 70 hours of power and comes with a five-year-warranty, as well as being a COSC-certified chronometer.  Core models feature a coloured dial (blue, green, black, or sand-coloured) and rotating 60-minute bezel in stainless steel. For those looking for an even bolder look, the Avenger Night Mission chronograph—with a vibrant yellow or carbon black dial—has a case and bezel constructed entirely of scratch-resistant ceramic.

Prized by pilots as well as frequent flyers, a red GMT hand provides at-a-glance reading of Zulu time along a 24-hour rotating bezel. The diameter is equal to that of the chrono, with a more compact profile. The steel-cased Avenger Automatic GMT comes in a choice of black or navalblue dials, with a military leather strap or three-row stainless-steel bracelet. It’s powered by the COSC-certified Breitling Caliber 32 that provides an approximate 42-hour reserve and is backed by a two-year warranty.

This well-balanced watch has all the robustness of its larger counterparts in a trimmer 42 mm diameter. Constructed in steel, the Avenger Automatic offers a choice of black, naval-blue, or camo-green dial, with the option of a matching military leather strap or three-row stainless-steel bracelet. Its engine is the COSC-certified Breitling Caliber 17 automatic three-hand movement, delivering up to 38 hours of power with a two-year warranty.
