Breitling’s aviation legacy traces back to the 1930s, solidifying its enduring connection to the aviation industry with iconic timepieces like the Navitimer, AVI Co-Pilot, Aerospace, Emergency, and, of course, the Avenger. For two decades, the Avenger has led the way in aerial exploration. Tailored initially for jet pilots, it’s a watch renowned for enduring the harshest cockpit conditions. Today, its appeal extends beyond the aviation world and is celebrated for its robust design, resilience, and advanced features.

New Breitling Avenger Collection

The revamped Avenger features sleek aviation detailing, durable materials, and the integration of the potent Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 into its chronograph models. The new series offers a 44mm chronograph, a 44mm automatic GMT, and a 42mm automatic variant. Each model boasts a military leather strap or a stainless-steel bracelet, along with a 300m water resistance. Notably, the collection prioritises functionality and durability, with features designed for easy grip and corrosion resistance.

The Avenger B01 Chronograph 44 and Night Mission models showcase the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01, offering a substantial power reserve and certified precision. The Avenger Automatic GMT 44, favoured by pilots and frequent flyers, provides an effortless reading of Zulu time. Meanwhile, the Avenger Automatic 42, with its balanced design, combines sturdiness with a more compact profile.

Dial colours have been inspired by the uniform colours of different professional fields – black for the Night Mission model and sand, green and blue for those who work in desert, forest, and naval environments. While the carbon and beige options remain faithful to the roots of the product, the additional shades make the watch more versatile and easier to wear in this modern age, which helps to bring the timepiece into the 21st century.
