Introducing the forceful Avenger Hurricane Military Volcano Black; a strong, fierce companion that is designed to survive the impossible.
Limited to 1000 pieces, the striking, exclusive instrument nods to Breitling’s impressive history with the aeronautical and military field. Transporting watch connoisseurs back to the 1940s through to the 60s, Breitling use a yellow-beige colour on the highly legible dial familiar with models of this time; a design feature that provides a sense of experience already surviving previous missions with an understanding and eagerness for those that lie ahead. The stencilled 24 hour mode is typical of the military and aviation industry and leaps from the black dial.
The imposing 50mm Breitlight case is lightweight, robust, highly resistant to corrosion and provides thermal stability - the perfect contender equipped for extreme, life-threatening missions. The unidirectional ratcheted rotating bezel adds to the powerful, stealthy aesthetic designed by Breitling. A tough, robust feature enhanced by the masculine pushers and crown that include a non-slip grip and can be easily handled with gloves.
Powered by Maunfacture Breitling Caliber B12 - a selfwinding chronograph movement certified by COSC, the impressive instrument boats superb precision and reliability. Admire the outstanding dial via a thick sapphire crystal glare-proofed glass that hosts 1/4th of a second chronograph, 30-minute and 12-hour totalisers. With a power reserve of over 70 hours and a water resistance of 100m the Avenger Hurricane Military is ready for battle. Fasten the Limited Edition with a khaki-coloured high-resistance Military textile fibre strap with black rubber lining that guarantees comfort and sturdiness.
