The Avenger Hurricane, originally introduced in 2016 with an imposing 50mm dial is now being unveiled in a new slightly smaller 45 mm size, while remaining a super-charged chronograph, built for extremes.
A world first, the watch embodies an ultra-light, ultra-sturdy case in Breitlight and comes with a yellow or black dial and high-performance Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01.
Like all Breitling watches, it is chronometer-certified by COSC (the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), the ultimate benchmark in precision and reliability.
Its stature, its material, as well as its 24-hour indication combine to make the new Avenger Hurricane a standout model complete with aviation-inspired stencil-type numerals. The Avenger Hurricane case is entirely made out of Breitlight®, a high-tech material exclusive to Breitling boasting a number of functional qualities. It is anti-magnetic, stable in respect to thermal variations and above all ultra-resistant to scratches, traction and corrosion. As a crowning touch, it is 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel. The watch retails at $8,390.
