It immediately flaunts a standout 50 mm diameter. It revolutionizes watchmaking with its ultra-sturdy and ultra-light case made in a futuristic material named Breitlight®. It surprises observers with its Manufacture Breitling movement equipped with a 24-hour militarytype display. Close-up on a Breitling built for extremes.
Its name sets the tone: with the Avenger Hurricane, Breitling is launching a new chronograph that pushes all existing boundaries in terms of instruments for professionals.
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.
Extreme performance, through 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.
Extreme reliability thanks to the new Manufacture Breitling Caliber B12, a selfwinding 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, ensured by a highly legible dial enhanced with luminescent hands and numerals, a thick sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides and controls (pushpieces and crown) fitted with a non-slip grip ensuring optimal handling even with gloves.
Extreme comfort, procured by an exclusive strap combining yellow rubber core and sides with a high-resistance black Military textile fiber exterior.
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. It’s not called Hurricane for nothing.
