Breitling unveils first major update to Avengers series since relaunch in 2019
All case sizes in the range have been shaved off by a millimeter, although all the Avengers remain large and sturdy
The black ceramic and carbon fiber “Night Mission” is a special highlight
Modern Breitling replica watches swiss is a brand that is very much a legacy of its past. Navitimer, Chronomat, SuperOcean, Premier… These modern collections pay homage to Breitling’s important historical models, mixing and matching design cues from Breitling’s past while using increasingly modern and mature movements, including Breitling’s first in-house movement, the B01 .
But The Avengers is a more modern phenomenon. First launched in 2001, the Avengers have always been a modern take on Breitling—sure, over the years the Avengers have borrowed aesthetics from older Breitling lines, but they’ve always been younger and more practical. .
Breitling has now updated and somewhat rationalized the Avengers collection for 2023, shrinking the range in terms of case diameters and models, and introducing some pretty exciting new colors and materials. The new Breitling Avenger collection consists of 21 different models in 3 different styles: 44mm Chronograph, 44mm Automatic GMT and 42mm Three-Hand. For clarity, let’s break it down by format.
Breitling Avenger B01 Chronograph 44 and B01 Chronograph 44 Night Mission
The main event is the new Avenger B01 Chronograph 44, which, as the name suggests, is powered by Breitling’s in-house B01 movement (which previously only powered some Avenger chronographs) and comes in a 44mm case. Previously, you could get the Avenger Chronograph in 43mm or 45mm sizes, so this represents a slight rationalization of the range. Breitling is known for big watches, but it’s nice to see the Avenger become slightly less… huge.
Core models feature blue, green, black or sand matte dials with black blue subdials and a date window at 6 o’clock. Sand molds are particularly popular. The Avenger’s bezel has also been redesigned and now incorporates a 15-second indicator on the bezel “rider label” in 5-second increments. Raised round studs have also been added to the bezel, similar to the current generation Super Chronomat bezel.
Especially cool are the two new B01 Chronograph 44 Night Mission models fake watches for sale. The previous generation Night Mission watch used a black DLC titanium case, while these two new models (one with a yellow dial and one with a forged carbon fiber dial) use a black ceramic case. This is the first time Breitling has used a black ceramic watch. case (as is the forged carbon fiber dial). They also use B01 movement now.
While the standard chronograph has been slightly reduced in size, the Night Mission’s dimensions are quite noticeable. The previous Night Mission was a whopping 48mm in diameter, 44mm is a more reasonable size, and the ceramic material makes it lighter on the wrist. Visually and technically unique, the Breitling Avenger B01 Chronograph 44 Night Mission is the highlight of the collection.
Breitling Avenger Automatic GMT 44
The GMT model is available in either blue or black, and also features a redesigned bezel – this time with a 24-hour marker, making it more functional than the previous Avenger GMT that shared time and chronograph bezels sexual design. However, the night mission version of the GMT is now discontinued.
The Breitling Avenger Automatic GMT 44 watch has a 44mm case (shortened from 45mm) and is powered by the Breitling Caliber 32 movement based on the ETA 2893-2. Like all new Avengers (except Night Mission), it’s available on a color-matched military leather strap or a three-row bracelet.
Breitling Avenger Automatic Watch 42
Finally, we have the smallest member of the New Avengers family, the Automatic 42. Not much to say here: its case is 1mm smaller and available in black, green or blue (a smaller color range than previous three-hand generations). Avengers (Avengers)) and uses Breibling caliber 17, which is based on the ancient ETA 2824-2 movement.
