The Breitling Replica brand debuted at the new Avengers. The 24-hour movement features a cumbersome 50mm “Breitlight” polymer case – lightweight and “seemingly cool” and should be smaller and more approachable. The new Breitling Avengers hurricane still has the same 50mm high-quality Breitling replica as its predecessor, but now it is used in conjunction with Breitling’s in-house manufacturing Calibre 01 – a 12-hour chronograph movement that has become a still independent Swiss brand The iconic sign of the watchmaker.
Size complaints aside, the Breitling Avenger Hurricane 12-Hour Copy Watch is still a worthy entry in the “tacticool” Avenger series, and one that carries a slight advantage over its predecessor, in that it’s easier to read at a glance – particularly for those not accustomed to reading time in the 24-hour format.
Usually reserved for Breitling Avenger Replica limited, or top-shelf Chronomat and Navitimer offerings, the B01 is a column-wheel chronograph equipped with a vertical clutch, yielding crisp pusher engagement and buttery-smooth actuation on the center-mounted chronograph seconds counter. The automatic movement hums along at a pretty standard 4Hz, but carries a generous 70-hour power reserve from a single barrel.
Whether Breitling Replica Watches China has a more reasonably sized Hurricane still tucked into its sleeve for a later release, the Hurricane in its current form is still unapologetically cool with its ultra-masculine aesthetic, military-inspired stenciled numerals, and subtly textured Breitlight case. Available now in both black.
