The Grenchen based timepiece manufacturer, Breitling, has presented revamped products from its Avenger series. The new watches which now bear the Avenger II designation in their names are redesigned and made to be more resilient, functional and ergonomic. These were the guiding principles in the creation of four new models. Each of the Avenger II models features a thinner and more curved steel case with a titanium case-back and has an admirable water resistance of at least 300 meters (1000 feet).
The avenger line by Breitling is devised as a series which includes timepieces that include precision and reliability, even in tough circumstances. This is why each of the models from the line has an above average resistance. The ability of the Avenger timekeepers to withstand high pressures and shocks is secured with a clever designing. To ensure this trait, the Avenger timekeepers are made robust and with significant reinforcements for the side of the case. Another example of it is the presence of a screw-locked crown which is notched to prevent slipping while it is being operated.
Furthermore, the entire design of the case has been changed. The housings made of steel are now produced with a slimmer and more curved profile which not only looks better, but also makes them much more comfortable and ergonomic. Moreover, there is an interesting characteristic that separates these products from the rest of the brand’s products. They are equipped with a titanium case-back which significantly reduces the weight. Though unfortunately constructed without the exhibition section due to the fact that they need to be more resilient, the titanium case-backs are also useful since they include the conversion scale which helps the wearer convert from metric to Anglo-Saxon units.
The changes in the design are likewise visible from the front side. A new type of bezel is used which includes etched numerals, satin-brushed finish and rider tabs. Similarly, the dials have been changed and are now with baton-style hour markers or with stencil-shaped Arabic numerals. Available in several different colors, the new watches are coupled with a rubber strap or a newly designed Professional steel bracelet.
All of the past Avenger models are no longer available. The line of products currently consists of four mechanical watches with exceptional water resistance. These are Avenger II Chronograph, its supersized version Super Avenger II Chronograph, Avenger II Seawolf with magnificent water resistance to 3,000 meters (10,000 feet) and a traveler’s model Avenger II GMT.
