These are two new chronographs from Breitling. The aviation enthusiasts among us will probably like them. My favorite one is the new Navitimer 01 Limited Edition. Click on “read more” to see both timepieces …
Breitling Avenger Bandit
The new Avenger Bandit light, ultra-sturdy titanium case has a diameter of 45 mm. Its satin-brushed finishes eliminate any undesirable glinting. The gray color dial with tone-on-tone counters features vigorous aviation-inspired stencil-type numerals, with a luminescent coating ensuring excellent visibility under all conditions. The thick sapphire crystal is glare-proofed on both sides. The bezel, also adorned with engraved stencil-type numerals, stands out with its four rider tabs (a classic Breitling signature feature) serving to memorize times. The non-slip grip of the screw-locked crown and the chronograph pushpieces ensures optimal handling, even with gloves. On the titanium case-back we can see a conversion scale for the main units.
