Breitling Super Avenger Military

Breitling Super Avenger Military

Breitling recently introduced a new 24-hour military style timepiece called the Super Avenger Military — for those who like large, sporty, military style watches.

In lieu of 12 traditional hour markers, a military time watch uses 24 hour markers. So when the hour hand reaches what is normally 3 o’clock on a traditional watch, it is already 6 o’clock on this one. If you are in the military, this may have some utility. However, many companies, such as Victorinox, who uses an arguably simpler method of displaying the 24-hour time format: they print a supplementary military time scale on the inner part of the dial. This allows 24-hour time to be easily read at a glance, while still maintaining a traditional 12-hour dial.

Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute Blacksteel

Breitling has just announced a 1,000-piece limited edition Blacksteel version of the Navitimer Cosmonaute, which was originally launched last year. It is distinguished by a black matte PVD coating on the case, crown, pushers and bezel. The case measures 43 mm and is water-resistant to 30 meters.

This watch is manually wound, just like the original 1962 Navitimer. Also true to the original, the dial has a unique 24-hour display, which allows the wearer to quickly determine if it is day or night.

The Breitling Emergency 2

Earlier this year Breitling introduced version two of their proprietary Emergency watch. Like the original, it has a 121.5 MHz radio function that signals emergency personal, wherever you are in the world, and so it could potentially save your life. The Emergency II has the same functionality as the original with the addition of the newer 406 MHz frequency. It is the first wristwatch with a dual frequency PLB (Personal Locator Beacon).

The Breitling Transocean Chronograph GMT

Breitling has just announced a very nice addition to their vintage inspired Transocean collection, the Chronograph GMT. We have been big fans of the Transocean line because while not paying homage to any specific vintage piece, the styling of these watches are a perfect nod to Breitlings of the past and have authentic vintage styling cues.
