Supersonic Strength, Full-Throttle Functionality: Breitling's Redesigned Avenger Collection Has Arrived

For over 20 years, Breitling’s Avenger has been at the forefront of airborne adventure. Built for jet pilots, it’s a watch that can take on the toughest cockpits and keep coming back for more. But you don’t need air force credentials to appreciate its bold design, exceptional resilience, and next-level functionality.

Get ready for the new Avenger!

Breitling’s ties to flying date back to the 1930s, when third-generation founded Willy Breitling formed the HUIT Aviation Department, dedicated to creating precision aircraft instruments and pilots’ chronographs. Its expertise in the then-emerging field of military aviation carried through into the birth of commercial air travel and beyond, resulting in such renowned timepieces as the Navitimer, the AVI Co-Pilot, the Aerospace, the Emergency and the Avenger. No other watch brand was a more impressive and enduring link to aviation.

“The Avenger was created to stand up to the relentless conditions of a jet cockpit and to support pilots in demanding aerial manoeuvres. Its redesigned demanded nothing less,” says Breitling CEO Georges Kern. “This collection pairs all the performance with sophisticated modern aviation style.”

The new range comes in three formats. A 44mm chronograph, a 44mm automatic GMT, and a 42mm automatic. All pieces come with a choice of military leather strap with folding pin buckle of three-row stainless steel bracelet with micro-adjustable folding clasp. Each has a 300m water resistance. And whether you can pull off a barrel roll or not, you’ll appreciate their easy-grip functionalist and corrosion-resistant construction.

Avenger B01 Chronograph 44 and Night Mission

The force behind the new Avenger chronograph is the Breitling Manufacture Calibre 01 that provides approximately 70 hours of power and comes with a five-year warranty, as well as being a COSC-certified chronometer. To reveal the movement precise mechanics, the chronos are equipped with an open sapphire-crystal caseback.

Core models features a coloured dial (blue, green, black, or sand) and rotating 60-minute bezel in stainless steel. Baton indexes streamline the dial, giving prominence to the red-tipped chrono hand. Note the gripped pattern on the crown and bezel, and the new square pushers, designed for the smoothest timekeeping operation.

For those looking for an even bolder look, the Avenger Night Mission chronograph - with a vibrant yellow or carbon black dial - has a case and bezel constructed entirely of scratch-resistant ceramic. Its caseback, crown, pushers, and buckle, meanwhile are crafted in solid titanium, providing the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal. Dial numerals provide superior legibility, particularly on the black dial, made specially out of resilient carbon fibre.

If you picked up on the fact that carbon fibre, titanium, and steel are also the stuff of aircraft design, it's no coincidence. The Avenger is made to be light and tough, just like the jets they fly in.

Avenger Automatic GMT 44

Prized by pilots as well as frequent flyers, a red GMT hand provides at-a-glance reading of Zulu time along a 24-hour rotating bezel. The diameter is equal to that of the chrono, with a more compact profile. The steel-case Avenger Automatic GMT comes in a choice of black or naval-blue dials, with a military leather strap or three-row stainless steel bracelet. It's powered by the COSC-certified Breitling Calibre 32 that provides and approximate 42-hour power reserve and is backed by a two-year warranty.

Avenger Automatic 42

This well-balanced watch has all the robustness of its larger counterparts in a trimmer 42mm diameter. Constructed in steel, the Avenger Automatic offers a choice of black, naval-blue or camo-green dial, with the option of a matching military leather strap or three-row stainless steel bracelet. Its engine is the COSC-certified Breitling Calibre 17 automatic three-hand movement, delivering up to 38 hours of power with a two-year warranty.
