From its Jet Team to its Honor Flight watches (which just raised $150,000 to help bring three hundred World War II veterans from California and Wisconsin to visit the memorial in Washington DC), Breitling has long had ties to the military. Now the brand is marking that relationship with the limited edition new Super Avenger Military chronograph series.
The Super Avenger Military features a 48mm black steel dial, screw-locked crown and unidirectional ratcheted rotating bezel. The rugged case, which boasts a stealth non-reflective ultra resistant carbon-based black coating, is water-resistant to 1,000 ft. The volcano-black dial features oversized hands, hour-markers and numerals for optimal readability, and of course a 24-hour “military time” display.
At its heart is a Breitling Caliber 22. The selfwinding movement is officially chronometer-certified by the COSC, and boasts 1/4th second chronograph, 30-minute, 12-hour and calendar functions.
An offroader military strap is fashioned from a durable and comfortable synthetic fabric such as those adopted for their operations by the elite armed forces.
The Super Avenger Military is limited to a 500-piece edition.
