It was a wild and wonderful Baselworld, with a host of new introductions. One of our favorites is the Breitling Avenger Hurricane with an ultra-light case made of the proprietary Breitlight®. The material is not only super lightweight, but also incredibly durable and scratch resistant. This is the first time the brand has used Breitlight® for an Avenger Hurricane watch. The properties of the material make it corrosive resistant and thermally stable. It's also anti-magnetic and non allergen.
The new 50mm extra-large diameter watch is offered with either a yellow or black dial and is water resistant to 100 meters like the previous watch. However the new watch is now powered by the high-performance Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01 chronograph movement — offering form and function to the wearer. The watch is, like all Breitling timepieces, a COSC-certified chronometer.
