Breitling Avenger Hurricane Review – Thoughts From A Bay Area Breitling Dealer
As the preeminent Authorized Breitling watch dealers in Walnut Creek and San Jose/ Santa Clara, Swiss watch lovers from around the Bay Area come to our stores in search of the world’s finest timepieces. Today we are thrilled to share our review of one of Breitling’s latest creations, the new Breitling Avenger Hurricane.
The Features – Plus… The New Proprietary Alloy, Breightlight
Cloaked in a midnight black case, this stealth watch defies it’s rugged exterior with Breitling’s new extra light proprietary allow aptly named Breightlight. Featured in the case and bezel, this new alloy makes for an extremely light wear at four times lighter than titanium. And at 50mm, your wrist will be thankful. Contained within this dial is an unmistakable military-inspired design, featuring stenciled 24-hour time display, and going the extra step, a rugged textile strap with a nicely accented yellow rubber core. Continuing this theme, the chronograph push-pins and crown are textured with a checkerboard grip to ensure non-slip functionality when wearing gloves, a great design for pilots and nice aesthetic feature for the rest of us.
The Caliber B12 Movement
Moving inside the watch, Breitling has fitted the Avenger Hurricane with their in-house caliber B12, the newest iteration of their B01 base caliber, which features a 70 hour power reserve. This automatic movement also contains a date function, 1/4 second chronograph, and in staying true with the rest of their in-house calibers, has been COSC certified to ensure accurate timekeeping.
Overall, the Breitling Avenger Hurricane is the perfect timepiece for the man that appreciates an over-sized masculine design but not necessary the typical weight associated with this type of presence. Featuring a super light proprietary alloy, military-inspired design, and in-house 70 hour power reserve caliber, this is a lot of watch for the money and should quickly become a well sought after timepiece.
