Breitling Super Avenger Military Limited Series Posted on March 6, 2015 by stnmgru_j4tj Posted in Breitling Military Watches Breitling describes its Super Avenger Military Limited Series watch as “a concentrated blend of power, precision, and functionality.” The “power” part undoubtedly refers to the new watch’s case, which is made of steel covered with an ultra-resistant, carbon-based black coating. The “precision” and “functionality” most likely refer to this Super Avenger’s COSC-certified chronometer movement, Caliber 22. The Breitling Super Avenger Military, which is a limited edition of 500 pieces, is built for stealth, with a non-reflective finish on the big, 48-mm case and a “volcano black” dial that echoes the case and features a 24-hour military time display with white Arabic numerals. The curved sapphire crystal above the dial has also been treated with glare-resistant coating. Further solidifying the model as a military watch is its “offroader” strap, made of a durable synthetic fabric similar to the type used by elite military units for special operations. This tough Breitling watch is equipped with a 1/4-second chronograph, which has a flyback function and tallies 30 minutes and 12 hours on two subdials at 9 o’clock and 6 o’clock, respectively. The chronograph push-pieces are protected by two screwed-in push-piece guards and the crown is also screw-locked, with a non-slip grip. The large hands, hour markers, and numerals were designed for maximum legibility. The ratcheted bezel rotates in one direction, a useful feature for diving; the case is water-resistant to 300 meters (1,000 feet). As with all Breitling watches, the Super Avenger Military contains a COSC chronometer-certified movement, Caliber 22, which features automatic winding and a frequency of 28,800 vph. The Breitling Super Avenger Military is priced at $7,765. This article was originally published on December 9, 2013, and has been updated.
