Breitling’s Powerful New Chronograph Is Practically Weightless

You like the look of a brawny timekeeper on your wrist. But who needs all that extra weight? Breitling’s new Avenger Hurricane finds a healthy compromise.


At 50mm with a bold, military aviation-inspired design, it certainly looks the part of a muscle watch, but there’s more than meets the eye: it’s housed in “Breitlight,” an all-new ultra-light polymer. Some 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel, the innovative material offers exceptional resistance to scratching and corrosion; it’s also antimagnetic and hypoallergenic.

All the authority you want, with none of the heft.
