Breitling’s Avenger Hurricane storms the scene with a new ultra-light, ultra-sturdy model

Breitling's most superlative timepiece now inducts a new member into its company, rounding out the repute of the Avenger Hurricane with an even more impressive addition. Armed with the same ruggedly oversized 50mm-diametre frame cast from Breitlight — the exclusive alloy 3.3 times lighter than titanium, which made its debut on the original watch — this latest version packs a more powerful punch with an improved movement, the Manufacture Breitling Calibre 01, to keep time with superior precision and reliability.

Stamped with the seal of approval from the Swiss Official Chronometre Testing Institute, the new Avenger Hurricane also does away with the previous 24-hour military-style indices for a more accessible 12-hour display. In enhancing its readability, the timepiece sports a dial in either black or yellow, punctuated with aviation-inspired numerals painted in white to play up a bold contrast. Further lit with luminescence in dim conditions, its cutting-edge technicalities are upgraded with a unidirectional rotating bezel with four rider tabs that serve to memorise times, as well as non-slip elements fitted upon the push-pieces and crown for optimal handling. Additionally equipped with a water resistance of up 100 metres accompanied by a unique strap crafted for comfort and sturdiness, lined with rubber and made of high-resistance military-grade textile fibre, the Avenger Hurricane 12H is a superhero of a watch that takes to both skies and seas like a champ.

The Avenger Hurricane 12H is available at the Breitling boutique.
