Destined to be a companion on the most extreme missions, this newcomer to the Avenger line displays all the qualities of an instrument for professionals. The generous 48 mm case features a slimmer and ever more ergonomic profile, extended by inward curving lugs. Wrist comfort is enhanced by the light feel of the titanium and a military-style fabric strap. The ultra-resistant carbon-based treatment reinforces the technical, powerful and sophisticated style, while eliminating any bothersome glare in the heat of action. The oversized hands and hour-markers ensure optimal legibility in all circumstances, including in the dark thanks to the luminescent coating that stands out clearly against the black background. The large screw-locked crown with non-slip grip guarantees maximum functionality, while its protective guards accentuate the robustness of the construction that is water-resistant to 300 meters (1,000 ft). The new face of daring feats, the Avenger Blackbird by Breitling is powered by a selfwinding movement chronometer-certified by the COSC – the highest official benchmark in terms of precision and reliability.
