Breitling is back with a bang this summer, with the reinvention of their statement military inspired timepiece, the Avenger Blackbird. Destined to become a companion on the most extreme of missions, the new Avenger Blackbird vividly encapsulates the theme of the entire Breitling Avenger collection: power in action.
The Breitling Avenger has always been at the heart of the action and has become an essential tool for professional pilots who experience the most daring feats on a daily basis. The Avenger range perfectly reflects Breitling’s powerful, technical and sophisticated style while braving extreme challenges on any mission, whether they’re in the air, on land or even underwater. Fitting seamlessly into the Avenger range, the new Blackbird also has the ability to become a reliable instrument for professionals.
The brand new Avenger Blackbird is guaranteed to become the face of new and more daring challenges, as it displays all features of a professional wristwatch that is prepared to take on any mission. Its all-black look, easily readable dial and use of robust materials highlight the watch’s power and functionality. Its striking 48mm diameter case is made from black titanium to ensure that it is sturdy and robust while being lightweight on the wrist at the same time. It also features a slimmer and more ergonomic profile for maximum comfort and is coated in an ultra-resistant, carbon-based treatment in order to eliminate unwanted glare.
Surrounding the dial is a black uni-directional, rotating bezel that features prominent markings for further enhanced legibility. There is also a large screw-locked crown that features a non-slip grip for maximum functionality.
The 3-hand, volcano black dial features oversized hands and hour markers that are all treated with a luminescent coating to ensure they stand out against the all-black watch and can be easily read in absolutely any circumstance. There is also an easily legible date display at 3 o’clock. The dial is protected with sapphire crystal that is cambered and glare-proofed on both sides and the watch is secured with a sturdy military style fabric strap.
The movement is an embedded, self-winding movement. Just like all other Breitling movements, it has been chronometer certified, which is the highest official benchmark for precision and reliability in the world of watchmaking. Therefore, not only does it exude power on the outside, but the Blackbird represents excellence and quality on the inside also, making sure this timepiece is a strong and distinctive accessory for any adventurer.
The Breitling Avenger Blackbird is available from select watch retailers now.
