Breitling’s latest timepiece is the Super Avenger Military limited edition, a large chronograph with a 24 hour time display, a DLC coated case and a chronometer certified movement.
One thing Breitling does rather well is large, aggressive looking chronographs. Its successful series of Blacksteel limited editions are a testament to this. The new Super Avenger Military is another example of this formula. The 48 mm case is DLC coated and water-resistant to 300 m. Both the crown and pushers are screw down; the latter is inconvenient when operating the chronograph.
And to do justice to the “military” appellation, the watch has a 24 hour time display. Inside is the COSC certified Breitling cal. 22, which is an ETA 2894. Artfully described in the press release as “an elite force on the wrist”, the Super Avenger Military is sticks closely to a successful formula used by Breitling many times before. But despite not being new the formula is successful because these watches look good. Fitted on a black fabric strap, the Super Avenger Military is limited to 500 pieces and will retail for S$10,940 including 7% tax (~US$8720). – SJX
