Luxury watchmaker Breitling unveiled a new massive watch named Avenger Hurricane.

The new 50mm diameter Breitling Avenger Hurricane is a bold statement.  The new Breitling features an ultra-sturdy and ultra-light case made in a futuristic material named Breitlight.

The Breitlight material is 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel, but significantly harder.

This new exclusive high-tech material is also exceptional resistance to scratches, traction and corrosion, anti-magnetic, thermal stability, anti-allergic properties as well as a touch that is warmer than metal and a slightly mottled effect accentuating the originality of the design.

The Avenger Hurricane features a 24-hour military-type display analog display to stand out on the second glance. Powered by Manufacture Breitling Caliber B12, a selfwinding chronograph and chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute).

Extreme functionality, ensured by a highly legible dial enhanced with luminescent hands and numerals, a thick sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides and controls (pushpieces and crown) fitted with a non-slip grip ensuring optimal handling even with gloves.

The Breitling Avenger Hurricane is water-resistant to 100 m/330 ft and featuring a rotating bezel with rider tabs serving to memorize times. The price of the Breitling Avenger Hurricane is around $9,000.

The Baselworld 2016 officially opens on March 17 in Basel, Switzerland. Watch manufacturers around the world will present their newest time pieces and smartwatches.
