Designed with jet pilots in mind, this timepiece is engineered to withstand the harshest cockpit environments and return for more. However, you don't require air force credentials to admire its striking aesthetics, exceptional durability, and advanced features.
Prepare for the arrival of the revamped Avenger.
The Avenger, now updated and invincible. Breitling is answering the call of the skies with a redesign that focuses on sleek aviation-inspired details, resilient materials, and the integration of the formidable Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 into its chronograph models.
Breitling's aviation heritage takes flight back to the 1930s when Willy Breitling, the third-generation founder, established the HUIT Aviation Department. This dedicated department was committed to crafting precision aircraft instruments and chronographs for pilots. Their expertise in the emerging field of military aviation seamlessly transitioned into the era of commercial air travel and beyond, giving rise to iconic timepieces such as the Navitimer, AVI Co-Pilot, Aerospace, Emergency, and Avenger. Among watch brands, Breitling's connection to aviation remains unparalleled.
The new Avenger range offers three distinct formats: a 44mm chronograph, a 44mm automatic GMT, and a 42mm automatic. Each model offers a choice between a military leather strap with a folding pin buckle or a three-row stainless-steel bracelet with a micro-adjustable folding clasp. With a water resistance of up to 300 meters, these timepieces are ready for action. Whether or not you can perform a barrel roll, you'll appreciate their user-friendly features and corrosion-resistant construction.
Let's take a closer look at these models.
AVENGER B01 CHRONOGRAPH 44 AND NIGHT MISSION
The new Avenger chronograph is powered by the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01, offering approximately 70 hours of power and a five-year warranty. It's also a COSC-certified chronometer. To showcase the movement's precise mechanics, the chronographs feature an open sapphire-crystal caseback. Core models come with colored dials (blue, green, black, or sand-colored) and a stainless steel rotating 60-minute bezel.

Baton indexes on the dial highlight the red-tipped chrono hand. Take note of the grip pattern on the crown and bezel, as well as the newly designed square pushers, ensuring smooth timekeeping operation. For those seeking a more daring appearance, the Avenger Night Mission chronograph, featuring a vibrant yellow or carbon black dial, boasts a case and bezel made entirely of scratch-resistant ceramic. The caseback, crown, pushers, and buckle are crafted from solid titanium, offering the best strength-to-weight ratio of any metal. Dial numerals ensure exceptional legibility, especially on the black dial, made from resilient carbon fiber. The use of carbon fiber, titanium, and steel in the Avenger design is not coincidental; it mirrors aircraft materials, making the timepiece both lightweight and durable, just like the jets they accompany.

This steel-cased timepiece offers a selection of black or naval-blue dials and comes with the option of a military leather strap or a three-row stainless-steel bracelet. The watch is driven by the COSC-certified Breitling Caliber 32, providing an approximate 42-hour power reserve and supported by a two-year warranty.
AVENGER AUTOMATIC 42
The Avenger Automatic 42 is a well-balanced timepiece that retains the sturdiness of its larger counterparts while featuring a more compact 42 mm diameter.
Crafted from steel, it comes in a variety of dial options, including black, naval-blue, or camo-green. You can choose between a matching military leather strap or a three-row stainless-steel bracelet.
