Breitling Avenger Hurricane 12H

Marina Milojević | 02.01.17 | 03:17 PM

In March 2016, Breitling introduced the Avenger Hurricane model forged in Breitling’s proprietary new material called Breitlight. This ultimately masculine timepiece, featuring a 3-6-9 chronograph layout and an original military-style 24-hour display, is the world’s first watch ever created from Breitling’s exclusive high-tech material. Breitlight is no less than 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 lighter than steel, yet significantly harder. The cutting-edge composite is also anti-magnetic, hypoallergenic, and, to the large extent, resistant to traction, corrosion and scratches.

The Avenger Hurricane collection now welcomes a new member featuring a more conventional 12-hour mode. The Breitling Avenger Hurricane 12H retains the old masculine proportions, measuring no less than 50 mm in diameter. The main change lies in the fact that Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01 now replaces the Caliber B12. It offers the same superior level of precision as its predecessor, while respecting the natural day/night division by holding to the 12-hour clock time convention.

The lightly streaked blackened case, made of Breitlight, is joined by a highly technical yellow or black dial with aviation-inspired white stencil-type numerals. Luminescent material on hands and numerals, paired with a thick sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides, ensures perfect legibility in all conditions. Bretitling’s signature rider tabs, serving to memorize times, are visible on the bezel. Like in all Avenger models, the pushpieces and crown  on the Avenger Hurricane 12H are fitted with a non-slip grip ensuring optimal handling, even with gloves.

On the inside, the high frequency Caliber 01 beats at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour. Mounted on 47 jewels, the COSC-certified self-winding movement offers around 70 hours of power reserve.
