Breitling has released a new model, which isn’t really new. More like an option on a previous released model from last year, the Superocean 44 Special. Its a nice option for those of us that don’t like the blacksteel cases like myself. I don’t mind the look of blacksteel I just don’t like how it ages after its been bumped and scratched a few times. Overall, not a particularly interesting release from Breitling, but a release nonetheless.

Superocean 44 Special

A diver with a steely temperament
With its sturdy steel case, its ultra-legible dial and its rotating high-tech ceramic bezel, the new Superocean 44 Special plunges securely to a depth of 1,000 m (3,300 ft). This special series with its technical and original style is available in black or blue versions.

Breitling’s new Avenger Hurricane 12H features the world premiere of their Breitlight material (which was premiered before, but they are calling this their world premiere anyway..), which is similar in look and feel to the forged carbon cases out there. This is a pretty sweet case material to finally come out of the Breitling labs.. I just wish it wasn’t a cheesy name like Breitlight… they need to work on their names and take some tips from Apple. Otherwise, this is a pretty significant release from our friends at Breitling and I will be keen to see what other watches start coming out in this case material. The movement is the Caliber B01 and is very similar to the limited edition Hurricane 24H that came out last year… and like that beast this one also measures 50mm in diameter.

Its a sweet looking watch, and I think if this was in a different case shape, maybe something like a Chronomat, with some better mix of materials I would be all over it.

Avenger Hurricane 12H

Homing in on great feats
The Avenger Hurricane takes off in a new version in which the ultra-light, ultra-sturdy case in Breitlight® – a world-first – is teamed with a yellow or black dial and high-performance Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01. A chronograph built for extremes.

A new model for the Breitling for Bentley line.. using the B55 Connected movement used in the Breitling Exospace B55. This cool new watch from Breitling for Bentley is named the Supersports B55 and is limited to 500 pieces and features a Titanium case and measures in at an imposing 46mm. Cool looking new watch for the Bentley Enthusiasts out there.

From Breitling:

A connected sportster
Created to celebrate the launch of the Bentley Continental Supersports, this 500-piece limited series is distinguished by its resolutely sporty appearance, with a sturdy and light titanium case framing a carbon fibre dial. Such exceptional bodywork deserved an equally exceptional engine and Breitling has duly equipped it with an exclusive version of its connected B55 electronic calibre enriched with functions tailor-made for the automobile universe. Thanks to a new connective philosophy in which the smartphone is dedicated to serving the watch, owners enjoy the full benefit of the phone’s optimal user friendliness when performing certain adjustments. Conversely, they can upload the results of certain measurements from the chronograph to the smartphone as well as receiving notifications. The two ultra-legible LCD (liquid crystal display) screens are equipped with a backlighting system that can be activated by pressing the crown or tilting the wrist – a welcome asset in the heat of the action. A compendium of performance, in tribute to the fastest Continental ever built.

Latest in the sleek, miliary styled Breitlings is the Chronospace Evo Night Mission. Badass to the bone – this watch makes me feel like Jason Statham, the Rock and Mark Wahlberg all at the same time while drop kicking bad guys and shooting them in the face with a machine gun all at the same time. True Mall Ninja Tactical right here.

Hitting the spot in blue and black
By appearing with a sturdy and light black titanium case framing a blue dial with tone-on-tone counters, the electronic Chronospace chronograph from Breitling adopts a strong and original new persona, while maintaining its sterling qualities as an instrument for professionals.

From March to September 2017, the Breitling DC-3 will be doing a grand world tour in several stages, an amazing accomplishment for this legendary plane that will be celebrating its 77th birthday.
