“Power in action” is the motto of Breitling’s Avenger collection. It lives up to its name with an intensely black DLC (diamond-like carbon) treatment that gives the Blackbird a sleek gunmetal finish. The light, scratch-resistant titanium case is supremely robust and shock resistant, like all Avengers. The large dial gives great readability and with a rotating bezel to help keep precise count of flight or dive times, the Breitling Blackbird is a highly functional timepiece designed for active wear.
Bezel: The Avenger’s rugged bezel not only complements the adventurer feel of this timepiece, it also increases grip, particularly for aviators wearing gloves. The bezel’s counter-clockwise unidirectional functionality also makes measuring time more failsafe and precise.
Dial: Whatever your mission, the Avenger collection has a dial to suit you. Two distinct dial styles appear: one with bold military-style stencil-type Arabic numerals and the other with simple indices. Colour-wise, go for classic black, deep blue or striking yellow.
Sub-dials: Those seeking increased functionality in a timepiece should opt for an Avenger model featuring three auxiliary dials in a 6:00, 9:00 and 12:00 layout - keeping track of seconds and of elapsed minutes and hours, and aiding on-flight calculations.
