Breitling Avenger Hurricane Military The New Strike Force

[10/04/17] 

Luxury watch brands have always liked to link their products with various masculine facets, from flying and golf, to motor sports and sailing. But one of the most common themes is the military.

We don’t know if watches are important to elite military units, but we know time and accuracy always are, so it’s no wonder that many of the leading Swiss watch brands have pieces dedicated to the gents in camo green.

The latest sensation from Breitling combins cutting-edge performance with a look that would make G.I. Joe squeal with excitement. The Avenger Hurricane Military not only has a name laced with potent imagery, but also boasts all the kinds of technology and sophistication you’ll need, whether you’re taking down a rebel village or setting out to conquer Lan Kwai Fong. Presented in a black avant-garde 50mm case in Breitlight, the brand’s futuristic alloy, the Avenger features a dial with aeronautical-type numerals and a selfwinding Manufacture Breitling caliber powering an exclusive 24-hour display. Limited to just 1,000 pieces, this striking timepiece also boasts a rotating rider tab bezel as well as pushers and a crown featuring a non-slip grip, ensuring optimal handling, even with gloves. The legibility of the 24 stencil-type aviation-inspired numerals, as well as the chronograph indications, is enhanced by thick sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides, while an exclusive strap combines comfort and sturdiness, with a black rubber lining and sides, as well as an exterior in khaki-colored high-resistance military textile fiber featuring tone-on-tone stitching.

It’s enough to make you yell Oohrah.
