Breitling has indeed equipped it with an imposing 50mm case in Breitlight – an exclusive high-tech material 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel yet significantly harder. It is endowed with a number of qualities (exceptional resistance to scratching, traction and corrosion, thermal stability, along with antimagnetic and anti-allergenic properties). This ultra-light and sturdy construction (water-resistant to 100m/330ft) is enhanced by lateral protective reinforcements, a rotating rider tab bezel as well as pushers and crown featuring a non-slip grip ensuring optimal handling, even with gloves.
So as to set a unique and reliable cadence for timing impressive feats, the Avenger Hurricane Military is powered by Manufacture Breitling Caliber B12, a self-winding chronograph movement displaying the time in an entirely original 24-hour mode, as typically used in the military and among pilots, and chronometer-certified by the COSC, a sure token of superior precision. The legibility of the 24 stencil-type aviation-inspired numerals, as well as the chronograph indications, is enhanced by a thick sapphire crystal glare-proofed on both sides.
The exclusive strap also combines comfort and sturdiness, with a black rubber lining and sides, as well as an exterior in khaki-colored high-resistance Military textile fiber featuring tone-on-tone stitching.
