Within just a few months, the Avenger Blackbird has proved a hit among fans of ultra-technical instruments. It continues its winning ways in a new version with a smaller diameter but an equally original and forceful design. High-performance, accurate and functional by nature, the Avenger Blackbird in its 48 mm version embodies a concentrated blend of the Breitling spirit. It confirms these qualities in a new 44 mm diameter with an equally strong presence on the wrist.
The robust yet light case in titanium, a metal much favored in the aeronautical world, features a highly resistant black carbon-based coating – resulting in a ‘stealth’ look without glare and further accentuated by the satin-brushed finish. The sleek, ergonomic profile is extended by inward curving lugs. The dial stands out by its excellent legibility, with large hour markers and hands highlighted by a luminescent substance, along with a red border framing the date window. The unidirectional rotating bezel, fitted with four rider tabs to facilitate handling, keeps an extremely precise count of flight or dive times.
The large screw-locked crown with non-slip grip is equipped with reinforcements to protect against shocks. This clear-cut vocation for top-flight accomplishments is also reflected in the Military type anthracite strap in an ultra-sturdy high-tech fabric. To guarantee first-rate performances, the Avenger Blackbird 44 carries an officially chronometer-certified self-winding movement aboard a case that is water-resistant to 200 m (660 ft).
