Breitling, which has recently revamped its Colt collection as well as tweaked the look of its newest Chronomat Airborne watches, has also given a redesign to another popular line in its portfolio, the Breitling Avenger series. The Breitling Avenger II collection includes two chronographs, one divers’ watch, and one GMT watch.
Breitling has developed the Avenger II series to be “even more technical, functional, and sophisticated,” with a slimmer and more ergonomic case profile, aviation-style “stencil” numerals; an engraved, satin-brushed bezel with integrated rider tabs; and a lighter, titanium caseback with a conversion scale for metric measurements. The Avenger II retains the large screw-locked crown with non-slip grip; the thick, glareproof sapphire crystal; and large hands, numerals and hour markers, here enhanced with Super-LumiNova.
The Avenger II is a chronograph with 43-mm case diameter, water-resistance to 300 meters (1,000 feet) and push-piece guards screwed into the steel case. Prices range from $5,100 to $5,500.
