Breitling Avenger Hurricane Watch Hands-On

Breitling Avenger Hurricane Watch Hands-On

Postby koimaster » August 9th 2016, 3:40pm

At Baselworld 2016, I got to play with the first watch using Breitling's so-called "Breitlight" case material, which is the Breitling Avenger Hurricane (debuted on aBlogtoWatch here). This is a deceptively cool watch even though it clearly isn't for everyone. With that said, I really like it when brands like Breitling produce intentionally niche watches like this that work really well for particular purposes. What makes the Breitling Avenger Hurricane weird? Well, in addition to displaying the time in a 24- versus 12-hour layout, the case happens to be really big at 50mm wide and produced from a form of carbon polymer.

That is a monster.
Plus the looks of the case remind of the cheaper plastic/polymer cases you see advertised using the tubes of tritium
The name of the manufacturers escape me for the moment, these range from $400 upwards but not to $8K
