Breitling Avenger: An Air Universe Icon
Combining the best of pilot and diving watches, the robust Breitling Avenger debuted in 2001, joining the Breitling Air universe that includes the Aviator 8 and iconic Navitimer. It’s no question that the Breitling Avenger helped cement the brand’s strong ties to aviation, dating back to the 1930s and 40s when they provided onboard clocks and key timekeeping equipment for many commercial airplanes. Since then, they have remained at the forefront of exceptional watchmaking for pilots, revolutionizing their models time after time to keep up with modern demands. In 2019, the Breitling Avenger was relaunched and redesigned to represent the bold collection’s subtle transition to present day aviation. To help introduce the newest Breitling Avenger collection, the brand recruited a few of the world’s premier aviation leaders like Scott Kelly, Rocio González Torres, and Luke Bannister—otherwise known as the Aviation Pioneers Squad. This reliable and rugged collection is also offered in three distinct functions including time only, chronograph, and GMT watches. Interested in learning more about Breitling’s history?
