Breitling Avenger Hurricane

Big, bigger, biggest sure goes for this Breitling Avenger Hurricane with it’s 50mm case. Not the biggest wrist watch on the market but at this size it sure is one that can’t be missed. Although it’s large case it still wears rather comfortable on the wrist. Where you would expect that it is very heavy, the use of Breitlight material makes it even a lot lighter compared to smaller watches. Without the strap this watch only weighs 68.92 grams! Breitlight is an innovative metarial that is 3.3 times lighter compared to titanium and even 5.8 times lighter than steel. Despite the fact that material is so light it actually has many extra features. It is said to be more scratch and corrosion resistant. Besides that it has great thermal stability and anti-magnetic benefits.

The ultra-light 50mm case straps to your wrist with a rubber strap that features a military textile fiber filling on the outside. This black fabric is made to last and has a high-resistance to wear and tear. You can configure your Breitling Avenger Hurricane with a folding clasp that opens with small pushers on the side. This is helpful to make sure your watch is securely strapped to your wrist and easy to open again. Some folding clasps that come with a press/lock system can be extremely hard to open and close. For those who prefer a standard buckle this is an option on certain configurations which also saves you about 600 euro.


Stealthy black with a twist

Although black is the main colour for this watch it comes with yellow details. And for those who think that’s not enough there always is the version with a bright cobra yellow dial. For the hour markers Breitling used aviation-inspired stencil-type numerals which gives it a bit of a military look. On the front you will find the typical Breitling bezel with the 4 raised markers which moves n one direction only. All in all if you’re a fan of the bigger watches this might be an interesting choice for you. Powered by the Breilting B15 automatic movement you get at least 70 hours of power reserve.

    I am certain that Georges Kern, as CEO of Breitling, would help to create some truly stunning as well as technologically innovative watches at Breitling.

    I like the better surface finish of ordinary plastic watches better than the rough finish of carbon fiber watch cases. Plastic case are also much cheaper to make, lightweight and surprisingly durable.

    And if your plastic watch case every needed replacement, the movement could be transferred to a new case by any watchmaker in about 20 minutes.
