For over two decades, Breitling Avenger has soared through the skies, a steadfast companion to jet pilots navigating the most challenging cockpits. Beyond its air force roots, the Avenger is a watch that transcends boundaries, appealing to those who appreciate bold design, exceptional resilience, and cutting-edge functionality. In this blog post, we’ll explore the evolution of the Avenger, its rich aviation history, and the latest redesign that propels it into a new era of airborne excellence.
Breitling’s commitment to aviation traces back to the 1930s when Willy Breitling established the HUIT Aviation Department, dedicated to crafting precision aircraft instruments and pilots’ chronographs. This legacy manifested in iconic timepieces like the Navitimer, the AVI Co-Pilot, the Aerospace, the Emergency, and the Avenger. No other watch brand boasts a more enduring link to aviation, a testament to Breitling’s expertise in both military and commercial air travel.
In response to the relentless demands of jet cockpits, Breitling has unveiled a new Avenger collection, combining performance with sophisticated modern aviation style. The redesign focuses on sleek aviation detailing, wear-resistant materials, and the integration of the powerhouse Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 into its chronograph models.
The new Avenger range offers three distinct formats: a 44 mm chronograph, a 44 mm automatic GMT, and a 42 mm automatic. Each piece boasts a choice of a military leather strap with a folding pin buckle or a three-row stainless-steel bracelet with a micro-adjustable folding clasp, ensuring both style and comfort. With a remarkable 300 m water resistance, these timepieces are ready for any adventure, whether in the cockpit or beneath the waves.

At the heart of the new Avenger chronograph is the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01, providing approximately 70 hours of power and certified as a COSC-certified chronometer. The open sapphire-crystal caseback reveals the movement’s precise mechanics, while a variety of colored dials and rotating 60-minute bezels add a touch of personalization. For those seeking an even bolder look, the Avenger Night Mission chronograph features a scratch-resistant ceramic case and bezel, highlighting Breitling’s commitment to both style and durability.
Avenger Automatic GMT 44
Catering to pilots and frequent flyers alike, the Avenger Automatic GMT 44 features a red GMT hand for easy Zulu time reading. With a steel case, black or naval-blue dials, and a choice of military leather strap or stainless-steel bracelet, this timepiece is as versatile as it is reliable. Powered by the COSC-certified Breitling Caliber 32, it ensures precision and accuracy in every journey.
Avenger Automatic 42
The Avenger Automatic 42 strikes a perfect balance, offering the robustness of its larger counterparts in a more compact 42 mm diameter. Constructed in steel with various dial options, this timepiece is powered by the COSC-certified Breitling Caliber 17 automatic three-hand movement, providing up to 38 hours of power.
