Breitling are coming in fast and strong with their 2021 watch releases and to extend their collections further, they have just launched the Breitling Avenger GMT Night Mission. Robust, bold and a globetrotters dream, the limited edition of 2,000 pieces delivers the familiar all-black DLC coated case of the Avenger Night Mission with a khaki green dial, bold yellow GMT hand and dual-toned textile leather strap worthy of the luxury watch brand’s legendary aviation heritage.
First launched in 2001, the Breitling Avenger watch collection is characterised entirely by its shock resistance, extreme robustness and maximum readability. It is designed largely for the new generations of pioneering pilots, space explorers and drone specialists that require only the best in precision, durability and design. If you think the new Breitling Avenger GMT Night Mission looks familiar, you aren’t wrong. Previously, we have seen a similar khaki green coloured Avenger Night Mission Chronograph released back in 2019 and a GMT reference with a black dial and red hand early last year. This is the first time however that the khaki-green colourway is paired with a GMT complication.
Adhering firmly to its aviation roots, the Breitling Avenger GMT Night Mission Limited Edition guarantees optimal robustness with a scratch resistant and lightweight titanium case treated with a stealthy black DLC coating. It weighs in at only 93 grams – strap included – and measures to 45mm in diameter, 12.3mm in thickness and 53.7mm in height when taking into account the lugs. Its formidable unidirectional bezel is just at durable equipped with a 60 minute scale, perfectly suited to diving when paired with its screw in crown and 300 metre water resistance, and four strong rider tabs designed to make usability effortless even when wearing thick pilots’ gloves.
Delivering additional scratch resistance and perfect legibility of the handsome khaki green dial is cambered sapphire crystal glass which is treated with an anti-reflective treatment. It’s not gone unnoticed that green-dialled watches are all the trend at the moment, but the military-inspired khaki colour is a really nice choice, especially when paired with the all-black titanium case. The same tone of green can also be found on the white stitched calfskin leather strap treated to look like canvas material. The strap is kitted out with a matching black DLC coated stainless steel push button folding clasp.
In typical Avenger fashion, the Breitling Avenger GMT Night Mission Limited Edition is adorned with large stencil-like Arabic numerals in white Superluminova, applied indexes at the 3,6 and 9 positions and a luminous triangle marker at 12 o’clock. Large greyed out and white Superluminova hands for hours and minutes sit centre stage while a sleek yellow tipped hand for seconds pairs with the full yellow arrow-shaped hand for GMT. Moreover, a white date complication is added at 3 o’clock and the legendary winged ‘B’ Breitling logo is positioned at 12 o’clock.
As with all Breitling watches, the Avenger GMT Night Mission is equipped with a chronometer certified movement, this time the Breitling 32 automatic winding calibre. Alongside its GMT function, the Swiss made movement delivers 21 jewels, a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and a power reserve of 42 hours. Sadly, the movement is kept hidden behind a closed screw down case back but instead ensures a solid 300 metre water resistance.
