Ironically I am NOT usually a fan of Breitling watches, chronographs, and most black finished watches . Somehow I am writing about a timepiece that is all three of these things.
Breitling has recently released the NEW Avenger Hurricane. This is a massive watch at 50mm in diameter. It’s constructed of what Breitling calls “Breitlight” This is combination of carbon and black ceramic and only comes this way. The dial is volcano black white military style digitized numbers. I love the contrast and the style of the Arabic numerals . It’s very annoying a date has been displaced between the 4, and 5 o’clock position, because it throws the dial off unnecessarily. Usually dates on watches are useless unless it’s a Panerai or Rolex where you can actually read the date because it’s magnified.
I was catching up with a client recently. He is a big guy and had this watch on his wrist. Normally when people show me Breitling watches I want to vomit but this was NOT bad at all. It was extremely light, good looking and masculine all at the same time. He wore it well and it caught my attention, which is hard to do as I can be critical. The chronograph functions include 1/4th second, 30 minutes, 12 hours. It has a 70 hour power reserve. The movement is the in house manufactured Breitling B-12 chronometer certified self-winding automatic. It’s fitted on a anthracite kevlar strap lined with yellow rubber which provides great contrast and durability at the same time. The chronograph hand also has a yellow tip and the subdial counter at the 3 o’clock position has yellow accents . I love that the dial is a 24 hour dial. It makes it unique and more military looking. Considering how much brands charge for these black cased watches, the NEW Breitling Avenger Hurricane is priced well at $8,390 retail.
