Breitling Super Avenger Military Limited Series Watch With 24 Hour Time
The Breitling Super Avenger Military's all-black and pleasing "Golden Mean" is a rare example of a 24-hour watch. In the United States, we refer to the 24-hour clock as military time. This is because here, mainly the military uses this format, while civilians use the 12-hour format. We love our AMs and PMs. As many of you who live or travel outside the United States know, the 24-hour format is used around the world for everything from TV listings to movie times. Having said that, if you want an analog watch (mechanical or otherwise) that tells time in a 24-hour format, you have very few options. Still, if you want to wear a digital watch all day, you're in luck.
This new Super Avenger military limited series timepiece inherits the outstanding appearance of the Breitling Avenger watch and combines it with the brand's Caliber 22 automatic movement, displaying 24-hour and 12-hour time formats. We last saw this movement in use in the Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute watch. The Navitimer Cosmonaute is also a limited edition watch with a more vintage style and is clearly Navitimer in design. It's also only 41.5mm wide, and this Super Avenger is more modern (and larger).
Constructed from 48mm wide black coated steel, the Super Avenger Military is a very solid timepiece. Do you like the stenciled font on the dial? The case is water resistant to 300 meters and comes with a military canvas strap. It also has a diver-style rotating bezel. The Caliber 22 automatic chronograph movement has a 12-hour chronograph and date, in addition to giving the time in 24-hour format (I guess reading it at a glance took some getting used to). The movement is also COSC Chronometer certified.
I don't know how much use I can get from a 24 hour format dial, but then again I'm not in the military. There is a demand for these types of watches from certain groups - which is probably why this is a limited edition. Although I really like the Super Avenger watch collection. If you're looking for something modern and masculine, and really want a mechanical watch that tells the time in 24-hour format, then one of your few options is the Super Avenger Military.
