Breitling is extending the Hurricane Avenger collection with this updated Avenger Hurricane Military replica watch. Like the basic Avenger Hurricane before it, the Avenger Hurricane Military is made of Breitlight, a light and sturdy material that is a trademark of the historic manufacture.
So, what is new about the Breitling Hurricane Avenger Military? Not much, actually. It features the same 50mm (yep) Breitlight case, which boasts being 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel, however it is much harder than both materials, allowing for more sustainable wear. The dial display is the same three-register chronograph layout for 30-minute counter, 12-hour counter, and running seconds with the date display at four o’clock. The chronograph is powered by the automatic caliber B12, which is COSC-certified. What’s different is that the Arabic numerals (in 24-hour format here) are a beige color instead of the original pure white color and the lume on the hands is colored to match. Otherwise the watch is almost identical.
The watch is a limited edition run in 1,000 pieces, but Breitling has not yet announced how many will be made. It will retail for $8,840. For more, visit Breitling online.
