Limited to 2000 units, Breitling’s new camo-cool Avenger Automatic GMT 45 Night Mission is exclusive to China and Southeast Asia.
If you’re looking for a timepiece that promises to be as tough as it is good looking, it’s hard to go past Breitling’s Avenger series, which introduces the modern performance-inspired pilot’s watch with pure Breitling DNA. And within the series, the Avenger GMT model has proven particularly popular. Now, to mark a new year on the Lunar calendar, the Avenger Automatic GMT 45 Night Mission is presented in striking khaki green.
The first Limited Edition to be exclusively launched in Greater China and SoutheastAsia in 2021, the new stealthy Avenger Automatic comes in a shade of khaki that Breitling says was specifically chosen to represent robust resilience and renewed hope for the year ahead.
Although camo green isn’t the colour we would have gone with if hope and success was the theme (unless it’s the success of not being seen) there’s no doubting the result is a thoroughly masculine model that’s bold, extremely robust, and shock-resistant. The Avenger Automatic GMT 45 Night Mission Limited Edition features a lightweight yet sturdy 45mm DLC-coated titanium case with a khaki-green dial and an additional yellow hand indicating a second time zone, perfect for planning those Zoom calls to mates you’ve not seen since 2020 (or even before).
The timepiece comes with a khaki-green military leather strap that fits either a DLC-coated stainless-steel pin buckle or folding clasp. Its specific Arabic numerals recall the stenciled numbers used on the decks of aircraft carriers. Thanks to its rugged bezel and its special grip-pattern on the crown, the Avenger Automatic GMT 45 Night Mission can be easily operated wearing gloves, whether they’re those of a military aviator, or the ones you now wear on public transport.
The caseback is engraved with the words “ONE OF 2000,” an indication of its limited-edition status. The new Avenger Automatic will be exclusively available in all Breitling boutiques and authorised retail stores in Greater China and Southeast Asia.
