Watch: Avenger Blackbird from Breitling

BLACKBIRDS IN THE HEAT OF NIGHT. Not to be mistaken for a Blockbuster title, the Avenger Blackbird timepiece from Breitling does look like something a superhero would wear on the wrist




The black-on-black nuances are spot-on, highlighted by tinges of red and bright Super-LumiNova coating on the dial. This year’s latest edition took fans by surprise owing to its smaller case size of 44mm, compared to last year’s 48mm. But don’t be fooled by the size, as this “hot” pilot’s watch punches way above its weight with a black carbon-coated titanium body. Light and powerful, it also doesn’t hurt that the automatic watch can also go underwater to a depth of 200m. Its pilot’s watch status notwithstanding, this ticking beast is ready for your next dive.
