All-black and delightfully “mean,” the Breitling Avenger Watch Prices Replica Super Avenger Military is a rare example of a 24 hour watch. In the United States we refer to 24-hour-format time as military time. That is because here, it is primarily the military that uses this format while civilians use a 12 hour format. We are partial to our AMs and PMs. Many who live or travel outside of the US know the the 24 hour format is used heavily all over the world for a range of purposes from television schedules to movie times. Having said that, if you want an analog watch (mechanical or otherwise) that indicates the time in a 24 hour format you have precious few options. Though, you are in luck if you want to wear a digital watch full time.
This new Super Avenger Military Limited Series timepiece takes the excellent looks of the Breitling Avenger and combines them with the brand’s Calibre 22 automatic movement that displays 24-hour-versus-12-hour format time. We last saw use of this movement in the Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute watch (hands-on here). Also a limited edition watch, the Navitimer Cosmonaute was much more retro in style, and clearly a Navitimer in design. It was also just 41.5mm wide, and this Super Avenger is much more modern (and larger).
It’s, however, a very good thing that observe brands are experimenting with interesting case materials like carbon polymers. Use of these substances is less about solving existing problems in watches (save for possibly weight reduction) and more about becoming creative and maintaining traditional timepieces relevant. A fantastic example of this is how well the traditional look of this military-style Breitling Super Avenger Watches For Sale Replica case (that we have, obviously, seen in metal) translates into being left in a carbon polymer. That in and of itself is interesting and noteworthy.Brands such as Breitling are discovering these materials from different industries such as car, plane, and ship building. The materials are very useful, actually, being several times lighter than steel, very tough, resistant to things like fever or magnetism, and shock absorbent. That said, you still can’t actually polish a carbon polymer case, so we’re currently left with largely matte finishes which show off the native textures that these materials bring to the table. Further, much of the “art” involved in revealing the right carbon substances such as watch cases is especially in choosing those which have the proper shades of colours and aesthetic textures, etc.Breitling did not need to make the Breitling Avenger Hurricane 50mm wide, but I think they did so to be able to demonstrate how light a watch could be at this dimension, at the Breitlight fabric. If effective, prospective Breitling watches with Breitlight cases will probably be smaller. Super big watches are wearable if they’re light-enough, but you do want the “wrist charisma” to pull them off visually.
At 48mm wide in black-coated steel, the Super Avenger Military is a pretty solid looking timepiece. Do you like the stencil style font on the dial? The case is also water-resistant to 300 meters and comes on a military-style canvas strap. It also has a diver-style rotating bezel. The Calibre 22 automatic chronograph movement has a 12 hour chronograph and the date, in addition to offering the time in a 24 hour format (that I imagine takes some getting used to in terms of reading it at a glance). The movement is also COSC Chronometer certified.
I don’t know how much use I would get from a 24-hour-format dial, but then again I am not in the military. These types of watches are in demand from select groups – which is probably why this is a limited edition. Though I do really like the Super Avenger collection of watches. If you are looking for something modern and masculine and really want a mechanical watch with the time displayed in a 24 hour format, then one of your few choices is the Super Avenger Military. As a limited edition, Breitling will produce just 500 pieces with a retail price of $7,400. breitling.com
