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.
