Why We Love it

Sometimes, life calls for a big watch. A really big watch. 

The Breitling Avenger Hurricane is available in two sizes — 45mm and 50mm — but we’re talking about the big guy. The type of watch you wear over a flight suit when you’re on a mission to the lunar surface — that sort of thing. Inspired by aviation and military styles and built to a stupidly high standard of ruggedness, it’s a timepiece for those who don’t mess around.

This particular Breitling Avenger Hurricane ref. XB1210 dating to circa 2020 features a 50mm, black forged carbon case, convex sapphire crystal, signed crown, unidirectional ratcheting timing bezel, luminous black dial with Arabic numerals and matching handset, triple-register chronograph layout with 30-minute, 12-hour and running seconds totalizers, and a black and yellow rubber strap with Breitling deployant clasp. Its unique 24-hour display, when combined with a traditional count-up dive bezel, makes for a compelling, utilitarian timepiece.

But that’s not all — it also comes with its punched chronometer papers, instruction manual, international warranty booklet, and digital international warranty card dated to 2020. With an untouched case and bracelet in good condition showing only normal wear, this is a hell of a tool watch, ready to endure more adventures.

Snag it before it’s gone!

Overall Condition

The case is in excellent condition overall showing signs of light wear from age and use. Luminous black dial is in as-new condition with matching handset. Signed crown.

Brand Story

+
Breitling, one of the most illustrious names in the annals of the “tool watch,” was founded by Léon Breitling in 1892. And though the firm is no longer operated by its namesake family, it still produces some of the world’s best pilot’s watches, many of which now feature in-house movements.

The company first started manufacturing wrist chronographs as early as the 1930s. In 1936 they became an official supplier to military forces of the United Kingdom and Canada. While perhaps best known for the Navitimer and Chronomat lines — which were used heavily by pilots of many nations — Breitling also produced scores of other chronograph models that merit consideration, such as the more affordable Top Time and Premier. Dive watches, such as the Super Ocean, are also part of the company’s offerings.

The late 1970s was a turbulent time for the Swiss watch industry, and many storied houses were swept away by the Quartz Crisis. By 1978, Breitling was in trouble due to the illness of its leader, Willy Breitling, and the steep decline in sales that had cut through the entire industry. Unable to keep operations going, the company was liquidated, and parts, toolings and naming rights were sold off.
Between 1979 and 2017, Breitling continued under the ownership of the Schneider family. In 2017 an 80% stake in the firm was sold to a British private equity firm, with the remaining 20% sold in 2018. In 2019, the company released the caliber B01, an in-house, automatic chronograph movement that’s since found its way into the Chronomat and Navitimer collections, bringing the tale of this famed manufacturer full circle.
