Breitling presents another instrument for professionals under its highly appreciated product line Avenger. Let’s take a close look at that beautiful tool watch.
Breitling mostly focuses on the ‘’ aviation ‘’ concept when designing its timepieces. As a result of the domination for design details, the brand has a very distinctive and unique look in its products. While creating a strong DNA code for the Breitling, these common design details sometimes confuse the watch enthusiasts among different product lines of the brand which look very similar to each other. Practically, you will most likely not confuse a Breitling with another watch but, you may have a problem in determining which Breitling you are looking at.
The 45mm diameter case is made of smoked titanium which presents a rich, tactical look to the watch. The dark tone of the titanium is stunning. If you like macho looking, bold and tool watch type timepieces with a darkened color but not quite satisfied with the paint-it-black themed PVD, DLC or ceramic watches, than you have just met your ‘’ soul watch ‘’.
The classic Breitling style bezel is made of titanium as well. The unidirectional, ratcheted and rotating bezel has its four "rider tabs" (in order to have a better grip, possibly, while wearing gloves) at the compass points is a common feature of the Avenger line. The rotating and click feels are solid.
The crown and the chronograph pushers are also made of titanium which bear the Breitling classic ‘’ waffle ‘’ texture. While supporting the ultra-grip in extreme condition, this texture is also giving a nice, sporty touch to the Avenger Bandit.
The solid titanium case back has engravings about helpful aviation unit conversions and an embossed polished Breitling logo on the center.
WR300M rated watch sports a heavily AR coated sapphire crystal keeping the visibility of the dial at its utmost. The AR coating’s blue tone is quite visible at certain angles which practically change the color of the dial.
The watch wears quite comfortably on the wrist. Surely, titanium has a great effect on that matter with keeping the watch’s weight ( without the strap ) at 100 grams. Let us remind you that the watch feels a bit hefty on the wrist since it is a WR300M model with an ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph movement.
The metallic Arabic numeral index over black background on the dial offers maximum visibility in every angle. The red accents add a nice touch to the dial which successfully matches the professional instrument style of the watch.
The watch is powered with an ETA Valjoux 7750 movement Breitling Caliber 13. The movement features many technical and aesthetic refinements to fit with the standard requirements of Breitling. Caliber 13 beats at 4Hz and offers 42h power reserve when fully wound.
Another distinctive detail of the watch is its strap. The strap combine a couple of different materials as a thick knit Nato looking fabric on the outside and vulcanized rubber lining on the inside. While looking perfect on the watch, the strap allows the Avenger Bandit to be worn during hot summer days and water sport activities. The titanium folding clasp’s design is another Breitling classic. Beside its robust structure, the clasp fits nicely with the tool watch look.
Breitling Avenger Bandit is a perfect timepiece which succesfully combines the brand’s DNA with today’s cutting edge technology. We strongly suggest this cool looking watch to the brand’s loyal followers and the watch enthusiasts planning have a bite Breitling Style.
