Breitling finally decided to bring back the old titanium Chrono Avenger in its new incarnation – the Breitling Avenger Bandit! I think this is a great move from Breitling since there was quite a bit of pent-up demand for the ultra large titanium tool watches and the Avenger Bandit is a great update to the old Chrono Avenger.


This is a pretty straightforward release from Breitling, essentially taking the Avenger Skyland and updating that to a Titanium Case, which sheds nearly 44 grams from the weight of the watch head.

From Breitling:
The Spirit of Naval Aviation

With its 45 mm titanium case, its gray ‘stealth’ look, its ‘Military rubber’ strap and its high-performance mechanical movement, the new Avenger Bandit more forcefully than ever embodies daring feats and extreme missions.

With its 45 mm, its ultra-sturdy and light satin-brushed case, its gray dial with aviation-inspired stencil-type numerals and its high-performance movement, the Avenger Bandit embodies the world of daring feats and extreme missions. An authentic instrument for professionals, this gem of power and technicality (water-resistant to 300 m/1,000 ft) is fitted with an exclusive strap combining rubber with high-tech Military textile fiber to ensure maximum sturdiness and comfort. The entire spirit of naval aviation on the wrist.

Forgot to post up this video of the Omega Speedmaster MKII Reissue I uploaded a couple weeks ago. Sweet watch, and really digging it – I should really post a written review too since I think its worth the effort for this pretty awesome watch. Been enjoying my time with it – hope you enjoy the video!
