By TLex With its stealthy 45mm gray Titanium case, the new Avenger Bandit reflects all the power and strength of the ocean fortress from which it was inspired!
Yes, folks; Breitling have made a return to Titanium for this newest Avenger model – fingers crossed that the next generation Avenger Sea Wolf also sees a return to what is in imho a far more superior material.
Ultra-light, ultra-sturdy, the aerospace industry’s material of choice is further enhanced by protective lateral reinforcements; its satin-brushed finishes eliminating any undesirable glinting that could result in unwanted attention whether it be in the heat of action or surveying a tropical reef whilst on r and r!
The Bandit’s dial is distinguished by its gray color with tone-on-tone sub-dials accentuated by a finely snailed raised pattern; it features military-inspired stencil-type numerals, with a luminescent coating ensuring excellent visibility further enhanced by a thick Sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides.
The divers bezel, also sports engraved stencil-type numerals; it stands out with Breitling’s classic signature four rider tabs serving to memorize dive-time. The non-slip grip of the screwdown crown and the chrono-pusher ensures optimal handling, even with wet hands or divers gloves.
The Bandit’s Titanium screwdown caseback sports an engraved conversion scale for the main units. Water-resistant is 300 m/1,000 ft.
Housed within its Titanium hull is a self-winding chronograph movement, the Breitling Caliber 13, officially chronometer-certified by the COSC Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute a sure signifier of its superior reliability and precision.
Finally the Avenger Bandit is equipped with a brand-new Military-rubber strap secured by a Titanium folding clasp - combining a sophisticated rubber tread on the wrist side with an anthracite high-tech Military textile fiber exterior.
