Breitling's aviation heritage dates back to the 1930s when Willy Breitling established the HUIT Aviation Department, dedicated to crafting precision aircraft instruments and pilots' chronographs. This enduring link to aviation has given rise to iconic timepieces like the Navitimer, AVI Co-Pilot, Aerospace, Emergency, and the Avenger, setting Breitling apart as a brand with an unparalleled connection to aviation.

The new Avenger collection introduces three distinct variations that offer something for every preference: a 44 mm chronograph, a 44 mm automatic GMT, and a 42 mm automatic model. Each of these watches offers a 300-meter water resistance and is available with the choice of a military leather strap with a folding pin buckle or a three-row stainless-steel bracelet with a micro-adjustable folding clasp. These watches are designed to resist corrosion and offer excellent grip functionality.

At the core of the new Avenger chronograph is the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01, boasting approximately 70 hours of power and a five-year warranty. Additionally, it is a COSC-certified chronometer. These chronographs are adorned with a colored dial (in blue, green, black, or sand-colored) and a stainless steel rotating 60-minute bezel. The dial features baton indexes for improved legibility. Additional design cues include the grip pattern on the crown and bezel, along with new square pushers for seamless chronograph operation.

For those seeking a more striking look, the Avenger Night Mission chronograph is available with a vibrant yellow or carbon black dial. This model is distinguished by a case and bezel constructed entirely of scratch-resistant ceramic. The caseback, crown, pushers, and buckle are crafted from solid titanium, offering an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio. Numerals on the dial ensure superior legibility, especially on the carbon fiber black dial, enhancing its durability. These are our personal favorites as they highlight the brands striking yellow and black logo based design.
