Breitling are at it again, this time launching a new version of the Avenger Hurricane where the time piece’s ultra-light, ultra-sturdy case is teamed with a yellow or black dial and high-performance Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01. A chronograph built for extremes. Enter the the Avenger Hurricane 12H.
Since its initial launch, the Avenger Hurricane has become to be called “the superlative-charged Breitling”, because of its impressive 50 mm diameter, its rugged construction with protective reinforcements for the pushpieces and the crown, its case made of an exclusive high-tech material 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 lighter than steel yet significantly harder, and by its numerous other qualities such as exceptional resistance to scratching, traction and corrosion, thermal stability, along with anti-magnetic and non-allergenic properties.
The Avenger Hurricane collections now welcomes a timepiece. Retaining the 50 mm XXL diameter, the Avenger Hurricane 12H replaces the Manufacture Caliber B12 24-hour military-style display with the Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01 indicating the time in a 12-hour mode – but, rest assured, it comes with the same precision and superior reliability guaranteed by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute’s chronometer certification.
On this instrument for professionals, the lightly streaked black color of the case – water-resistant to 100 m (330 ft) – is teamed with a technical and powerful yellow or black dial punctuated by aviation-inspired white stencil-type numerals. The presence of luminescent hands and numerals, along with a thick sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides, guarantees maximum legibility in every circumstance. The unidirectional rotating bezel is equipped with four rider tabs serving to memorize times. Like all Avenger models, the pushpieces and crown are fitted with a non-slip grip ensuring optimal handling, even with gloves. The exclusive strap combines comfort and sturdiness, with a rubber inner lining and sides and an exterior made of anthracite high-resistance Military textile fiber.
