Breitling's Avenger collection is part of the brand’s Aeromarine family of watches, which also includes the Superocean and Colt. Each of the lines within the Aeromarine range features a robust build and impressive water resistance. The Avenger collection is comprised of highly precise and durable self-winding chronographs. They’re ideal for both amateur and professional divers as well as anyone who appreciates an impeccably designed timepiece.
The Avenger models feature a modern design, with oversized cases typically measuring around 45mm. Over the years, Breitling has created a number of variations on the original Avenger, including the Super Avenger. As the name indicates, this iteration has an even heftier build, measuring a whopping 48mm.
There are other distinguishing features of the standard models in the Avenger collection. These include water resistance up to 300 meters, a unidirectional rotating bezel, and the brand’s iconic rider tabs. However, there are other versions of the Avenger that offer upgraded features. For example, the Avenger Seawolf comes equipped with water resistance up to 3000 meters. This model is a highly coveted option for professional divers. Breitling also created a limited edition of the Seawolf, the Seawolf Chronograph. This variation houses an exclusive, patented magnetic push piece system. In addition, it’s one of the only chronographs in the world to be water resistant up to 1000 meters.
In 2013, Breitling retired the production of the original Avenger. In its place, they introduced the first major redesign of the collection with the debut of the Avenger II. The primary difference between the Avenger I and II is aesthetic. Most notably, the Avenger II features a slimmer case design. With the debut of the Avenger II came a number of other variations on the model. This included updated versions of many of the existing iterations, like the Super Avenger II and the Avenger II Seawolf.
Breitling also added two new variations: the Avenger II GMT and the Avenger II Blackbird. As the name indicates, the Avenger II GMT comes equipped with additional time zone displays. Unlike a typical GMT function, this model showcases three time zones. It features a twenty-four hour display on the edge of the dial to read the second time zone and a bidirectional rotating bezel to read a third. The Avenger II Blackbird showcases a unique all-black titanium case coated with a diamond like carbon (DLC) finish.
Over the years, Breitling has continued to build upon the Avenger line. For instance, in 2016, they debuted the Avenger Hurricane. The model didn’t just mark the addition of a new iteration to the Avenger line. It also marked the introduction of an all-new, exclusive material for the brand called “Breitlight.” This ultra-light, high-tech polymer offers strength and rigidity with a construction charged with composite fibers. The result is a material that’s over three times lighter than titanium and nearly six times lighter than stainless steel.
