Titanium Time
With its imposing diameter, its light and sturdy case, its ultrareadable
dial and its all-black look, the new Avenger Blackbird
by Breitling vividly illustrates the watchword of the entire
collection: power in action.
Destined to be a companion on the most extreme missions, this newcomer to the
Avenger line displays all the qualities of an instrument for professionals. The
generous 48 mm case features a slimmer and ever more ergonomic profile, extended
by inward curving lugs. Wrist comfort is enhanced by the light feel of the titanium
and a military-style fabric strap. The ultra-resistant carbon-based treatment reinforces
the technical, powerful and sophisticated style, while eliminating any bothersome
glare in the heat of action. The oversized hands and hour-markers ensure optimal
legibility in all circumstances, including in the dark thanks to the luminescent
coating that stands out clearly against the black background. The large screw-locked
crown with non-slip grip guarantees maximum functionality, while its protective
guards accentuate the robustness of the construction that is water-resistant to 300
meters (1,000 ft). The new face of daring feats, the Avenger Blackbird by Breitling is
powered by a selfwinding movement chronometer-certified by the COSC – the
highest official benchmark in terms of precision and reliability.
