Supersonic strength, full-throttle functionality - Breitling's redesigned Avengers Collection has arrived

Posted on 28 December 2023

For over 20 years, Breitling's Avenger has been at the forefront of airborne adventure. Built for jet pilots, it's a watch that can take on the toughest cockpits and keep coming back for more. But you don't need air force credentials to appreciate its bold design, exceptional resilience, and next level functionality. Get ready for the new Avenger.

The Avenger, updated and unstoppable. Breitling is meeting the demands of the skies with a redesign centred on sleek aviation detailing, wear-resistant materials, and the addition of the powerhouse Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 to its chronograph models. Pairing performance with sophisticated modern aviation style, the collection's materials - stainless steel on regular models; ceramic and titanium on night mission - are the stuff of aviation design, while dial colours are drawn from military uniform shades.

 Breitling's ties to flying date back to the 1930's, when third-generation founder Willy Breitling formed the HUIT Aviation Department, dedicated to creating precision aircraft instruments and pilot's chronographs. Its expertise in the then-emerging field of military aviation carried through into the birth of commercial air travel and beyond, resulting in such renowned timepieces as the Navitimer, the AVI Co-Pilot, the Aerospace, the Emergency, and the Avenger. No other watch brand has a more impressive and enduring link to aviation. 

 "The Avenger was created to stand up to the relentless conditions of a jet cockpit and to support pilots in demanding aerial manoeuvres. Its redesign demanded nothing less," says Breitling CEO Georges Kern, "This collection pairs all the performance with sophisticated modern aviation style."

 The new range comes in three formats. A 44 mm chronograph, a 44 automatic GMT, and a 42 mm automatic. All pieces come with a choice of military leather strap with a folding pin buckle or three-row-stainless-steel bracelet with micro-adjustable folding clasp. Each has a 300 m water resistance. And whether you can pull off a barrel roll or not, you'll appreciate their easy-grip functionality and corrosion resistant construction.
